Did I have tricks for them? Why, Yes I Did!
I had root vegetables...turnips, radishes and potatoes for them. :)
After the funny looks and laughs about the turnip bags,
I also had some treats ready for them -
a few sweets and treats for the older two,
applesauce and fishy-crackers for the little guy.
Also, I had their Scaredy Cat quilts done!
Just. In. Time. (well, except for the binding on the bottom one for the little guy)
|Three ScaredyCat quilts!|
Oh, and in the right corner? That's my costume!
Batting strips - I was a Grand Mummy!!
I had the fabric for these quilts last year, before the little guy was born. So that only took me a year, plus to get them done. That's not bad for me.
A picture of the quilt for granddaughter:
Swirls and polka-dots, and the back with spiders!:
For the three-year-old:
Pumpkins and spiders!
And the backing:
And for the one-year-old (same as the one above),:
just a little more scrappy on the back:
They each finished at about 60 inches square. Perfect for couch snuggling.
I used the leftover fabrics and made scrappy backs and bindings.
Almost like I planned it or something. :)
