It's the last Design Wall Monday of 2015. I'm going to share some of the things I made for the grands for Christmas this year. Although the presents were well liked there was a small hitch. None of the embroidered fleece hats fit the child it was made for! Bummer. Natalie's fit Ellie so Natalie agreed to let Ellie have it and I have agreed to make new custom ordered hats for Natalie and Sophia.
Hats and mittens ready to be wrapped up. The mittens fit fine. The grey kitten went to Ellie. New hats will be made the first week of January and sent to Natalie and Sophie.
Here are two of the reindeer cross stitches ready to become ornaments.
Here's one ready to be wrapped. These were really cute but are a bit too big so next year I need to pay more attention to the size.
I did pretty well on the goals this past week. Of course, the goals were mostly things that HAD to be done by Christmas.

Keep on working on antique 9 patches
Pick an older project to finish and get on it!
Cut out a quilt with the new AccuQuilt Go
Cut some scraps into useable shapes
Make a donation quilt for 2016
Rest and enjoy the rest of the year!
I'm looking forward to using the AccuQuilt Go. Plans are to start cutting scraps into usable shapes. I may decide to add a few more dies before I can make much of a dent in my many containers of odd shape scraps!
I hope your Christmas celebrations were joyful. Let us all enjoy the last week of 2015 and welcome 2016 with hope.
Happy Quilting All!
