Being organized is over-rated!

Well all I can say is....so much for thinking I was organized this year! As always I'm having my last minute dash to get everything done in time.  Here's what I have been working on...


This was a free kit from The World of Cross Stitching magazine....such a cute design! My plan had been to make my own card, but I ran out of time and ended up using the card supplied with the kit - so much quicker!

Then I finished up one of the ornies that had been sitting in my to-do pile all summer long....



The little hedgehog stitchings were made into cards....the picture isn't great as it was late at night when I remembered to take the photo!


I also finished the knitted scarf, which turned out fabulously! (well, I think so anyway!)


I couldn't really get a good photograph of it, but you can at least see the wonderful pattern and colour changes. I made it into an infinity scarf and was planning on giving it to my son's girlfriend.....but I'm tempted to keep it for myself! :)  Maybe that's why I'm on Santa's naughty list!!!

I also managed to make some little embroidered gifts. 



I little mug cosy and matching coaster.



And a second one in bright pink...





And the little butterfly button looks adorable on this, don't you think?


I just have to add some more edible goodies to these gifts and then two more pressies are completed.


Phew!

Well, no rest for the wicked as they say! I still have  a few little finishes to get done before Christmas....wish me luck (and a few extra hours in the day!)

Thanks for stopping by at this busy time of the year. I appreciate all the comments.

Until next time....happy stitching!
