presents & meandering with thread

Janet has been working on presents -
Christmas presents!!
And I got to meander over TWO quilts for her twin nephews:
I think those little boys are going to go
rootin'-tootin' cowboy crazy
when they see their new quilts! 
(: Since they are twins, the two quilts are twin quilts,
so I've only shared one picture of a finished quilt,
but If you think the other "twin" might feel slighted, I"ll put another pic :)
Here is a close-up picture of some of the quilting:
Very cute quilts aren't 'they'?
Speaking of over-achievers Christmas presents...
Louise made a Christmas gift quilt for her sweetie:
Isn't it a great looking quilt?
She got it to me to quilt so she can do her binding and have it ready to wrap up early.
I asked them if they knew it was September.
Christmas quilts finished in September? 
What's up with that?
I'm going to have to give a good hard look at my calendar!
I'm off to check my calendar
(and maybe stitch a little, too).
How are you coming on your Christmas in September quilts?

crazy, mad

This is my bin
of Civil War reproductions - medium to dark fabrics,
under half yard pieces...

Yes, it's time to get a larger bin, I think.

Anyway, am I crazy-mad
in my collection of fabrics???
Or is everyone like this?

(And this is only 
the medium to dark, under half-yard cuts.)

I pulled the bin out to work on my Lucy Boston,
Patchwork of the Crosses blocks. 
That's when it came to me -
crazy, mad!!!
Way too much fabric!

I have issues. 
But lovin' my fabrics!

Do you have the same 'crazy-mad' problem 
"collecting"  fabrics as I?
