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.

Fueled by the scent of rubber shavings....

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.

Looking for:  ATCs, some dry non-sanded grout mix

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.
