Christmas Goodies for Max and Carson

Well now I'm on a roll.  Sara and I decided to make some fun goodies for the boys to send with the quilt.  We made a felt Christmas tree with lots ornaments for the boys to use to decorate the tree.  Of course, I couldn't just make simple bulb ornaments, I had to make them extra special with the boys favorite characters.  Max really likes the Ninja Turtles and Super heroes while Carson likes the Disney characters.  Then we decided to make a snowman.  Sara turned it into a Olaf snowman with lots of fun accessories.

Carson's quilt

This is my grandson Carson's quilt.  I purchased the materials to make this quilt just after he was born (in May 2014) and never actually started on it until a couple of weeks ago.  My sister Irene gave me a pattern that she explained would be simple and quick.  I proceeded to put off the creating since it still seemed beyond my abilities.  Finally I decided that I better get it to him before he turns two and I started and finished the quilt in about 3 days with the help of Irene who talked me through the process.  It was actually as simple as she had told me it would be.  Someday I may learn to listen.
