So Productive!

I just want to remind everyone (if you didn't already) to get out there and vote today!!


I am so very proud of myself the last couple of days.  I have been so very productive, not just around the house, but also with some beadwork.  It's been a long time since I sat down and beaded.  It makes me a little sad, but sometimes that's just how it is.

Now I don't have any pictures today.  I know, big let down, but I will have some soon.  I finished up my latest tapestry, I am 90% done with a beaded pendent, and I glued three new tapestries (I glued the cabochons on the fabric, now they just need the beadwork).  So I promise to get some pictures up either tomorrow or Thursday.  I'm too excited to share them with you not too :-)

But I do have a quick picture of the other project I'm finishing up.  My first crochet afghan.  

Look at her, she's so close to being finished I can taste it.  It's already Nacho and Yoda's new favorite blanket.  Every time I get it out to work on it, they seem to come out of nowhere to cuddle up on it.  I think I'm going to try a little bit of a decorative edge as soon as I finish up this thing of brown yarn.  Hopefully I can find one that is pretty, but perfect for a beginner like me.

I also have planned to start working on some washcloths to give as Christmas gifts.  I've had a lot of people compliment my little dish cloths, so I thought it would be nice to make up a couple sets to use as stocking stuffers.    

What have you been working on?  Have any of you started Christmas gifts yet (we only have 48 days)?

Love the colors in your afghan!
And kudos for starting on Christmas gifts already! I can't believe it's only 48 days away!

I also love the afghan colors! Good for you thinking about homemade Christmas gifts already. On a whim, I purchased a few Christmas gifts at the past couple craft fairs where I vended.
