I was doing really well with doing those monthly wrap ups, and then got all behind! Because I got busy!
So, here is what I finished for August, September, October and November. These are most of them, anyways. Might be missing a few.
Whew! As of the end of November, I have made around 150 items this year! A bit outrageous, but I have gained some weight, so I have many pieces of clothing that don’t fit me right now (sad face). I do need to spend more time on my elliptical to try to lose a good 10 lbs, but finding a time that the exercise room is not in use is proving challenging. Hubs and boy child are using it more, so I would need to wake up early to get in line. I’m very much not a morning person.
Anyways, I also finally got the holster done for my friend, too! Yay…got that sucker off the To Make list. This is just the cell phone picture I sent him, and he liked it. 🙂 Need to get better pics of it, though.
My plans for December are already filling up. This weekend I have several things I need to get finished.
- A strike off that came in the mail yesterday. The round opened yesterday. Yeah, not great timing on that.
- Barbie bags for presents to go off to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. My girl had a ton of barely played with Barbies with some really pretty dresses my niece got them. I had her go through and pick out ones to give away with a few outfits for each. Now I just need to make them a bag for each one and wrap them up for gifts. I need to get them sent out next week, so I have to get on it!
- I am hosting a Christmas party for friends and we exchange gifts. I need to make something for a gift for that, since I like to do that. Maybe a clutch? I don’t know yet. I do have a few things I purchased that I can use for the gift if I don’t have time, at least.
After that, I don’t have too much I need to get done. I will have the week between Christmas and New Year’s off, so I might do some tutorials and some new patterns I’d like to draft.
December is usually so crowded with events that I know I won’t have a lot of free time before the end of the month. I always look forward to that week off. Who knows…I might actually relax and read some books during that time. They are all piling up on my Nook!
