Christmas Gifts....I was busy!

Once I got started I just kept going. I made a quilt for Michael (which I wish I had back now that I purchased a new sewing machine. )  Michael had been asking me for a quilt ever since I made Max his quilt several years ago. I had purchased the fabric, started the quilt, and then did not like the way it looked so quit making it. Fast forward 3 years and I ripped apart what I had previously done, added some different fabrics in and used the same technique I had used with Carson's quilt a couple of weeks earlier. Here it is.
Next, I made 3 afghans.  One for Mama, one for Sara, and one for Megan.  I used a really large crochet hook and double strands of really soft yarn.  They were very simple to make - I just used single crochet throughout.  I thought they turned out nice.  Here they are.

                                                     This is the one I made for Mama.

This is Sara's.                               

This is Megan's.

That is all for now but will have another picture soon when I finish my current project - I am making a t-shirt quilt for Sara.  Wish me luck.  (It should be easy since I have my new sewing machine. - Right?)
