It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas...

I officially finished the Zoe's Flower Garden Baby afghan last night. It's getting mailed out tomorrow. I finished it at my sister's house while watching some great Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel, A Princess for Christmas and An Old-Fashioned Christmas.

The Nine Patch Country Girl baby afghan is on hiatus until I get a few Christmas gifts made. It actually looks manageable for the time I have left.

~26 wreath ornaments
~2 star ornaments
~2 icicle ornaments
~5 snowman ornaments
~1 baby bootie ornament
~1 stuffed cat
~1 cow ornament

I also have some snowman ornaments to finish for a friend. And another friend just moved into her first home so I'm planning some star coasters and dishcloths.

I found out my friend H is having a girl. They haven't decided on a nursery theme or color scheme yet. They are both science fiction fans who like the old school television shows like DR. Who. Here's my great idea: to make her a baby afghan inspired by Dr. Who's scarf. The purple will make up half of the squares thus making it sufficiently girlie. I'll know more in a few months.
