Only 10 More Days

It hit me today....we only have 10 days till Christmas!!! EEEEEKKKK!  So much to do!! After I had a mini-meltdown (ok...maybe a little more than "mini") I got to work and got quite a bit accomplished. As usual there are things I can't show you...but here are the ones that I can:

I made a couple of great t-shirts for some young boys...I'm pretty impressed with myself on these. I looked at monsters online and then just started doodling. I had probably a hundred to choose from so both the boys get the same little blockheaded monster - they live so far apart they won't run into each other at a party so I think I'm safe

This one still needs to be stitched down, but it's all fused

Here is one that's finished....SO cute!!

I also made a market skirt from this tutorial over at MADE. If you haven't checked out her blog, you really should...Dana has some amazing stuff going on.
This skirt is actually WAY cuter in person!
This skirt was SO simple! It went together really quick and is going to be perfect for the girly little girl getting it for Christmas. I was going to put pockets on it, but I ran out of time....this and one of the monster shirts had to be delivered last week....oh well, pockets will appear on a project soon.

I made these boxes for one the projects that I can't show you....I just couldn't find anything else to fit it (them) so I made my own. I found the directions over at Not So Idle Hands. It took a bit of trial and error to get the measurements just right. I never thought I'd make my own gift boxes, but I think it was worth it!

I've also been working on knit sweater ornaments. I have to trouble shoot the pattern a little more, but I'll try to have it posted in the next couple days. Honestly, I wrote the pattern and knit the first one in just a couple hours, so there is still time to get a couple done for last minute Christmas gifts.
This one is for my secret santa at work....if you know her shhhhhh!!

A little side note:  The cat has found a new napping spot...on my basket of fabric. If you get something from me and find a hair or 2 I'm sorry....just think of it as Bonnie saying hello.
I promise Bonnie is still just a kitten....but she looks awfully big laying there

I joined these parties....check them out for some great ideas.
