Extreme 'Last-minute' gift giving........ again!

I have been known to be a bit of the 'last-minute' panic people...  Today is no exception.  At 10.30pm last night, I realised I had no gift for a Kris-Kringle for tonight.  I started cutting up fabric and by 1am, had nearly finished two tea wallets and two matching coasters.  Yes, I know I still have the bindng to stitch down, but I can get that done at work today at lunch, can't I???  I spent a few minutes googling for a pattern for the tea wallet then remembered that last december, I blogged about it and posted the blog post the tea wallets came from!    Not only did I start this project at 10.30 last night, it appears that I had a fit of inspiration at 10.30 last year!!  (I must stop starting projects so late at night!)  I did a smidge of free-style quilting on the fan shapes and am really happy with the way they worked out.  Working on the binding is a good way to practice the technique for my bigger quilt project (shhh can't show you that either!)
