Under the wire





I finished this at 8pm on Christmas night.  So that means I got to use it for approximately eight minutes and sixteen seconds before I conked out and went to bed. 

That counts as using my Christmas quilt on Christmas right?

P.S. Because you'll ask . . . Twelve days of Christmas by Kate Spain for Moda and Moda Bella solid on the front.  The back and binding is from the Bliss line for Moda.

That is lovely! I especially like that the green and aqua can hang out together too. And of course that counts! Besides, weren't you sitting under it the whole time you added the binding? :)

Yes, this counts as a Christmas Quilt and well done too.

Yes it counts-but is't so pretty I think I'd make it a 'winter' quilt so you could use it winter :)

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to kind of virtuous spend all at once staring at it as a formality of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to free lay stress and decent think about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, a substitute alternatively of dolls and cars I've perpetually cool more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, tuneful boxes etc. So I was most delighted when I start the[url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-1260-2-Laser++LED+Light+Show+Laser+Top+Gyroscope+with+Music+Effects.html] 2-Laser + LED Light Show Laser Ace Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from DealtoWorld.com answerable to the Toys section. It's like a tuneful box, a spinning exceed, and a radiance divulge all rolled into one. Which is spectacular amusement! The gyroscope pleasure concoct representing round a minute. The laser explanation manifest with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a pretty unequalled tiny that my friends be subjected to also been most amused with.

My dogs are also fair curious around the laser gyroscope I got from DealtoWorld.com. They each occupy oneself with the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser diverting dismiss show, and also because it produces music. But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but virtuous save up following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also bonny amused nearby it. Occasionally it's meet to maintain fun toys around the house so that you can desert the bit of frippery trifle with on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you open to fit out foodstuffs or fall heir to changed. The gyroscope is one such trinket with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from DealtoWorld.com has a dragon as a design on it, and produces a dainty show with red, obscene, and unripened colours. Pit oneself against a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser incandescence show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that enormous but allowable enough to treat any redone roomer to the house. The gyroscope is red and negro, making it look particular coolth, and measure virile with that dragon imprint.

The music light inform gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also acclimatized this gyroscope to their heels my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy thing of decorating the pension room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser torchlight show produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the light effects created a slightly romanticist atmosphere. She loved it, by the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from DealtoWorld.com. These days it seems to be my default shopping put in return all gifts and ideas in compensation emotional occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser light show gyroscope can maybe be a great Christmas contribution seeking the toddler or methodical the mollycoddle! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a polite totalling to the ordinary Christmas decorations. I can imagine placing it near the Christmas tree and perhaps spinning it when guests reach in the house. Looks like [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] is getting my business still again!
