More for my reference than anything...

I have a few things in the works right now:

1) A craft project. I wish I could tell you more, but we traded names among family members, so the person has no idea I have them. Even telling you the colors of the project would be a dead giveaway. So, I'll update more about this item after Christmas.

2) My in-laws requested that we make their Christmas gift this year. For those that know me, know I love this kind of thing...so I'm really excited. But we have yet to decide on what exactly we'll make. Hmm...
3) A crocheted baby blanket for our friends that are expecting a baby in May. I started this a while ago (before they got pregnant) thinking I'd have more time to work on it, but there is actually a baby on the way. I have a time limit now. Once project #1 and #2 done, I'll have to get going on this one. Unfortunately, I pick one helluva stitch that's not quick and easy, but looks so darn cool. Hopefully it turns out OK and they like it.

4) Before Peanut was born, ShankRabbit and I got the brilliant idea to make her a dollhouse. The various pieces of wood and other materials have been collecting dust in our basement since that heady trip to our favorite home supply/hardware store. Hopefully, we'll have this done before she reaches puberty.

5) After seeing Jonah Lisa's felt food collection and her flannel board (seriously, this woman has got mad skills...check out her site), I am inspired to make stuff for Peanut to play with. I never thought felt could be so useful (and that I could make my own!). But with all the stuff already on my plate, I may just have to wait until the new year.
