    Talking First update on homemade xmas 2008

    Hi

    i am happy to say i finished a scarf today it is the first of six I plan to make. It took me a little longer than usual because i had to stop to make two baby blankets and a baby doll blanket for gifts. Does anybody else have an update??? Happy crafting.

    Great job! I'm going to start on some paper crafts this month (can you believe it's only 6 months til Christmas!?!?!) and will also be starting some knitting projects. I've got a knifty knitter round loom set and in addition to my first baby hat (for our baby due in January!!!!) I want to see if I can make some scarfs for my mom and sister.

    OH man, I need to get started. I was thinking of embroidering dishtowels for the ladies on my list. I just saw that all my
    Bzzagent points switched over to mypoints and I have almost 1200 points, now! I'd like to use those to purchase supplies.

    Another Update!!! I dug out my Gooseberry Patch "More Gifts For Giving" book to see if I could find some ideas and lo and behold...I realized that some time ago I'd gone through and marked recipes and gift ideas with sticky notes! I was thinking about ways to stretch my dollar and think the recipes for homemade ranch dressing mix, a season salt mix, and a steak rub mix would be perfect! So, I will definitely be saving to buy some of these spices in bulk!

    I need to start. I won't be making too much, though (small recipient list ), and I need to wait until closer to the holiday to make clothing for the kids as they'll most likely grow before Christmas.

    I'm working on little gifts for my kids to give to their class at Christmas. I'm trying to use what I have and I found a beaded cross craft kit! So, I'm making those and I will put them aside for Christmas! I always feel so stressed about that time, so this was a good idea for me.

    Ooh, I need to start mine! I started quilting this year and want to make a lap quilt for my dad as a Christmas gift. I was thinking of using "manly" fabrics like (re-purposed) corduroy and flannel.

    Last year I made blank all-occasion card sets for two female relatives, and they seemed to love them.

    Oh, I'd definately like to get in on this! I already made 4 bracelets as gifts, 2 for my girls, one for my cousin, and one for her daughter. My oldest daughter and I are learning to sew this summer and I'd like to make some aprons and skirts for my best friend.
