Christmas is coming up fast and I'm not close to finishing my list of handmade Christmas gifts for my family. Today I started sewing HSTs for my mom's big Carpenter's Wheel quilt, and I finished binding my nephew's crib quilt. I didn't have much to go, I just hate binding SO MUCH...but at least now it's done.
I am pretty bummed out because I finally got an idea for my dad's Christmas gift...a while ago I bought the pattern for these drawstring bags. I think there are seven sizes in the pattern. I was going to make him a set of all of the sizes, and I was going to use ripstop nylon for the bags. I figured they'd be handy for his camping trips, especially his big trips to the Boundary Waters between Minnesota and Canada. My mom thought that was a great idea...until he bought a few commercially-made drawstring bags recently.
Come on, Dad! Give me a break here! I think I may have to buy him something, but he's impossible to buy for too. Ugh.
Son's teacher: mug rug
Mom: quilt top
Dad: Who knows.
