How many of you still have unfinished projects that need to be done for Christmas presents?
I still have to iron my boyfriends quilt, create a Sleeping Beauty dress for a 3 year old And make accessories for my two friends Christmas gifts. To top it off my bag of hot glue sticks has run away.

Trust me, I feel like that every christmas.  (I had two knit scarves to deal with, and a knit bag to finish.)

I ended up finishing the smaller knit scarf, and finding another finished project at home which I could give to the recipient.

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.

In the past I have been known for the last minute gifts.  One year I sewed a happy coat for my sister on Christmas Eve.  A few years back after "losing" a day, I found myself baking about 8 gingerbread houses on Christmas Eve and still decorating them on Christmas Day. 

This year when I realised that some family were away over Christmas, I left the making of their gifts until after Christmas, which took a lot of pressure off.  Even then I left it til the last moment, it was the day before we were supposed to see them before I started making them.
