I'm almost done, just a few more things to get finished, and we NEED to take our family Christmas photo so I can get the shrink dink photo magnets done and sent with the Christmas cards.

Am I too late to join in?  I admire y'all getting so much done so early.

I got started on Christmas gifts way back in September, but got sidetracked before I got too much done.  Finally I'm back on track.

7 nieces and nephews  = pajama pants.  One of them only wears one-piece sleepers, so he's getting a fleecy pocket-blanket-pillow thing.  The baby is getting a fuzzy furry hat.  It's taken me forever to secretly get all their measurements without anyone figuring out what I'm doing.

Brother - more pajama pants and an afghan for his new apartment.

Mom - more pajamas.  a wreath.  repair of a quilted pillow I made her a few years ago.  Huh

Dad - Huh

SIL - zipper pouch filled with scrapbooking supplies

BIL - kitty condom beds for their three cats

MIL - zipper pouch filled with Huh - maybe sewing supplies (needles, etc)  Is that a lame idea?  Maybe a tote bag.  Her favorite tea bags.  A couple DVDs.

FIL - vanilla taffy.  Huh?

secret sister - patchwork scarf
I like exclamation points

I did a little crafting this year, not as much as I'd like to but I'm proud of what I got done Smiley

-Brother #1: a dagger inspired by his WOW character and no bake cookies
-Brother $2: a HP wand and rice krispy treats
-Boyfriend: guitar pick shaped coasters, initialed shotglasses
-Son: mommy, daddy, and baby puppets

I'm still thinking about making a taggie blanket and some felt food for my baby boy, I'll just have to see how much $$ I have left to spend.

i'm in the middle of a floor rug that is similar to your bowl. i just sewed LONG strips of fabric together, braided them, and then stitched them loosely in circles around each other. i got the idea out of a recon t book i have.

Ack, reading all these wonderful lists is making me anxious.  I still am not done with Splinter's robe and now I think I wanna make a felt TMNT stocking for my daughter.  Aaaaah!
