Keeping Busy

I made a list the other day and there were 31 things I needed to make or finish by Christmas. Most of those in the next 2 weeks so they will arrive on time to family in Canada. I brought everything into the living room and made a big pile to figure out what I actually had. I was able to eliminate 1 thing from my list.

Finished these capes for 2 of my nieces several weeks ago, all they needed was snaps and buttons. Done. Cross it off the list.

Needed something small for another niece. Made this cute little basket yesterday. Cross it off the list.

Stuffed and closed these pillows for my son and nephew. Cross them off the list too.

I finished this table topper a couple weeks ago and decided to give it away as a present - preventing an item from being added to the list is just as good.

When I need a break there are a few other things to keep me busy. Like the latest issue of Interweave Knits. Does it look a little strange? My son dropped it in the snow and I found it 2 days later.

I dried it out, but it's a little big.

I forgot to post that I have Issue 3 and 4 of the 100 Blocks magazine because my sister has a block in both and gave me a copy. What a great sis!


Comparing the 2 Block magazines to the 1 knitting magazine. You have to admit it's kind of funny. When I asked him about it, he said, "I thought I dropped something." My husband can't believe I kept it.

And last, but certainly not least, I participated in National Novel Writing Month this month and... I wrote the required 50,000 words. It's not finished but it felt great to write. Hope to finish it up once the crafting marathon is over.
