confession time!

Whoa! didn't mean to be so out of it here on the blog. I hate to admit that I am very unmotivated right now and I have two major projects that need to be done by Christmas!

The first one is for my husband. It's a weighted blanket. I heard about them from a friend recently who struggles with anxiety and restless leg syndrome at night. My hubby doesn't have anxiety but he has restless leg syndrome and has always loved heavy blankets. So I browsed around for a tutorial and got started about a week ago. Let's just say this sucker is a PAIN in the behind! I'm only about a third of the way done. :(

Next, I have to whip up a Birdie Sling bag for my sister-in-law. I'm just dreading all that interfacing. Maybe if I do a little at a time it won't be too bad.

What I'd rather be working on (because I'm selfish!) is this little imrpov thing I've got going.
And my Farmer's Wife quilt!

Well, I'm determined to get those gifts done so off I go. And don't remind me that Christmas is only 11 days away, eek!

I can't wait to hear how the weighted blanket works, I have not been diagnosed with restless leg, but wow, just adding a densely quilted quilt to my side of the bed helps me settle down. My husband thinks I am a nut!

Goog luck with your projects! They will both be loved by their recipients! Happy Holidays!
