Finished in the nick of time
My quilted gifts were very well received and nobody had any idea that two of them were started less than a week before Christmas.
Last, but not least, my cousin got engaged about a week before Christmas and informed us his new fiance was coming to Christmas. She’s a teacher, so I cranked out a quilted messenger bag to hold her school papers. I finished it at 1 a.m. on Christmas Eve. Then I wrapped all the presents.
She thought it was store-bought until my proud mother said, “Stephanie made that.” I considered it a pretty good compliment.
