Finished the hubby's pregnant friend's gift basket! Cheesy I am so excited that that's over.
Pictures are here. Now to work on more Christmas gifts! Cheesy

I posted the tutorial to the hand-drawn/painted mugs and discovered a flaw.
If you rub with your fingers, the marker comes off. :/ I'm trying to think of a sealant for it.

At least I'm not the only one to start on Christmas gifts early.  Smiley  Here's my list of projects:

Knitted hat to match the scarf I gave him last year.
Knitted slippers

A no sew blanket (similar to the one I tested out on my hubby: Linky
Homemade Candle (See Little Sis #1 present)

Dad: WIP
Crochet Angry Birds stress ball (both pig and the red bird).  The pig is done!  Linky

Little Sis #1:
Set of candles poured in mason jars (the empty jars are leftover from my wedding in May. Yay recycling!)

Little Sis #2:
To be honest, no clue.  She's about to go to college next year.

Little Sis #3 Done!
Batman latch hook pillow.  Finished the pillow!  I'll post pics later

Brother in Law (to Sis #1): WIP
Planning on painting a cross or something religious (his major was in religion) and framing it a nice, re-painted frame from a thrift store.

Uncle Willy:
No sew blanket, with orange on one side and the UT logo on the other.

There are so many good ideas here, I'm really thinking of making pajama pants now! I finally put links to my stuff up, so I feel very productive now!

update: i haven't done a single thing Christmas gift wise, other than gather materials. :/ dang. better get on this stuff fast, i have lots to make! Apparently, "pregnancy nesting" is taking up all of my time, that, and my toddler. yep, i need to get a move on it. i want to be done by thanksgiving!!!

New update: im 90% finished with a canvas advent calendar frm oriental trading. Its a color your own kind, but im using all fabric paint.  Time consuming & tedious, but i like it! She.will love it too, its for one of my besties Smiley

  how are you all coming along?
