Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Gifted Gorgeousness Report for November

Yes, late again - honestly, I just don't know what I do with my time these days - but it seems my ability to stick to a schedule has become most unreliable.  I really need to do some work on it. That sounds like the start of a New Year's resolution, but really, I don't want to go there yet.

I thought I had finished all my cross stitch Christmas gifts, but I've just added another five to my list.  No stitching to show yet, but I will be back next month with the finished ornaments.  However, I can show you a picture of most of the ornaments I have stitched this year.  It's not a perfect picture - I did consider taking them out of their plastic bags to get rid of the glare from the plastic, but I decided that was too much work. They have now all been wrapped or placed in gift bags ready for giving.

I did make some crocheted booties for my newest great-niece.  She is 3 months old now, and a very long thin baby with long feet.  Her mother (my niece) complained that she was having problems with footwear - anything long enough in the foot to fit Sarah was way too big around her ankles.  So I made some booties with long narrow soles and adjustable at the ankles.  I used 8 ply wool, scraps that I had in the house.

So, a relatively unproductive month for me.
