Some Christmas Progress... and crazy creatures

 I thought I'd share a bit of what I've been working on in preparation for Christmas. There is more, but to retain the element of surprise some things will have to wait to be revealed. 
 Small Patchwork Christmas stockings for teacher gifts made from the Sugar Wrap Stocking kit at Connecting Threads found here. It was a really quick project and happened to be on sale when I picked it up. I think I'm going to put small denomination gift cards in them.

A Color Pencil roll for a friend's daughter. I loved picking out all the colors from my stash, it was so quick to put together after that. I got the pattern from Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts.

The  beginnings of a Mountain Laurel Dishcloth found here on Ravelry

Finally 3 crazy creatures for my three crazy boys, I was planning on making them for Christmas, but I got caught making them and gave them early, the boys are still carrying them around, dressing them and sleeping with them so it was totally worth it

I'm working on Christmas swap boxes for Little Miss Shabby's Christmas Swap.

The box must contain the following:

~Delicious Chocolate/Sweets

~A Heartfelt Handmade Item (just something small)

~Selection of Fabric Bits

~An Unexected Surprise

~A Christmas Card

And since my partner Cris shared a little sneak peek of what she is working on, I thought I'd do the same. I am mostly a quilter, but when I saw the project that I'm working on, I knew that this paper crafting project would be perfect. Don't worry, I'm sewing up a bit too :)
