Hi all,

So I have a few items done and a few in the works.
I had a little mishap last week and broke my leg…top of tibia. I have been sending my husband down the stairs to my craft room to retrieve supplies. He is learning a great deal! Lol

I am going to be working on more items this weekend too!

Many of you are way ahead of me, but I’ll get there for sure.

Happy Crafting

Anne, Amfkinney

Finished something that I hope fits. I made it the way the instructions said. I am nearing halfway done.

I forgot to take photos of mine wrapped before packing them in the box. I’m afraid to open the box now. I barely got 10 of the 12 items in.

I love wrapping gifts… when they’re in square or rectangular packages. I had to get creative on some :grin:

I found fabric wrapping was extremely forgiving. I did have to stitch closed one or two gaps, but mostly a bit of knotting or a safety pin. Mostly though I feel better knowing I’m not shipping paper half way around the world to be tossed. I think most of Christmas wrapping this year will be fabric bags. And that makes awkward shapes so easy!

finished my second large last weekend…most likely starting a medium today!!! although the sun is shining brightly now, its supposed to rain all day, which is a perfect reason to just stay in and craft!! just need to decide exactly what i want to make. ha.

Oh no, @Amfkinney. Ouch! Sending you well wishes for swift healing.

I went to the craft store and bought most of the supplies I needed for one large but they didn’t have one critical item. I had to buy it online.

Since I couldn’t start on the large, I decided to work on other items. I am about halfway through a medium. Hoping to also complete a few smalls today as well.

I’m about halfway through a large. You know when there’s an easier way to do something but you don’t choose it? That is what has happened here!!! Oh well :rofl:

I just finished a large last night and am NEARLY done with another! I might start on a medium today as well. :slight_smile:

Progress has been made. Unfortunately (?) I was struck with inspiration which means now I have too many things on my list and will need to eliminate some…

That is the best problem to have though! If you end up making all of the items on your list, you’ll just have a few more gifts to share with others :blush:

I’m nearly there … I had to wrap a couple of things in paper, but mostly fabric bags :flamingo: guess who my partner is …

I really like fabric wrapping too. I always try to re-use wrapping paper and tissue paper when I can, but fabric is so much more durable.

A few years back I tried wrapping occasional gifts in teatowels (who can’t use an extra teatowel?) but it really confused some of my relations who are not crafty/thrifty types like my lettuce friends :confused:

I’m feeling inspired to make a bunch more fabric gift bags again for this Christmas!

And @Edel the post office is open again, so it should be underway within a few days …

Hahaha, I just got an ad for an estate sale today that was showing a whole HOUSE full of flamingo items, and it definitely made me think of Edel!

I finished another item last night. That’s five down now, including two larges! Hooray!

making progress. 1 medium and 2 smalls done. A third small has been started. This weekend I am hoping to start a second medium and if my critical supply gets here tomorrow, I’ll start on 1 of the larges.
