I'm making:

-4 Harry Potter scarves ((One for each house))
-2 hats
-2 other scarves
-Knifty Knitting a blanket
-Sewing a tote bag ((The pattern I'm using is one on here))
-A family recipe book for my mom
-Oreo truffles for friends

And I'm starting to wonder how I'm gonna get everything done.

But, I figure if I plod along, I can try to get a couple of scarves done this week.  I need to get 2 of the 4 done this week, cause I'm planning on sending them to friends.  And I need to do the Oreo Truffles this week too.  My cousins can wait a bit.  As well as the other one for a friend near by.  But I got a lot of time this week to get stuff done.  And one hat is pretty much done.  Just need to add a bit more length to it. And I need to paint a picture frame too.

But, I think I'll be alright, just gotta focus.

Obviously I have my work cut out for me.  I've never taken on this much for Christmas.

I'm making a "spa gift basket" for my MIL and husband's aunt so Im crocheting a soap sack, washcloth, and a pair of slippers to go with some spa-type stuff in there.... making my FIL a hat & scarf since he lives in Ohio. I'm going to make some other non-crocheted items as well- a bunch of mini (1") ball music ornaments for the members of my orchestra, a heat sack for my friend with fibro, and some sugar scrubs.

I have finished two starghans and am currently working on a RR, if I get done with the RR in time I plan on making a few potholders for the ladies at work.

Awesome! Sounds like we are all busy hookin' away! I've made (so far): a baby blanket, baby hat, a belt, an iPod holder, and I think that's it.

Here's a pic of the blanket:

And here's a pic of the hat:

More pics to come later.  Grin

I made 8 napkin ring holders for my daughter using Red Heart Super Saver Earth and Sky varigated WW yarn and basic single crochet, but what really dressed these up was a basic 5-petal flower and in the center I glued using jewlry glue turquoise oval "rhinestones."  They looked really really pretty... Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos

On the dashboard in my Nissan Cube, there this vinyl record size pad that is usually just a  rug, but I made this fun little Christmas Scenegurumi!
