WIP Wednesday

Well I haven't got much to show you this week.  With it being so close to Christmas I've been trying to finish as many as possible and get them wrapped.

I do still have my elephant hat that isn't finished.  I'm going to try and get it made up before the year is finished.

I have posted pictures below of everything I've been making for Christmas.  My family don't read my blog so it's safe to post pictures :-)
I don't have a picture but I made Ryan's teacher and the lollipop lady a mug cosy and bought a mug for each of them to go on.  I do have a picture of the ones I made for the men in my family.  I made one for my dad, my husbands dad and my husbands step-dad.  I hope they like them.  I'm sure they won't, my husbands family don't seem to appreciate hand-made gifts the way mine does.

This is a fantastic pattern from:

I love this pattern, very easy to follow and perfect size!

My mums tea pot cosy:

Last but not least the scarfs that I have made for the women in the family.
One for Ryan's Auntie Sara, My husbands Mum and his dads partner.

For my first year of making presents I don't think I'm doing too bad.  We are hoping to start earlier next year and maybe make things for hampers from scratch as well.  I think it means so much more when you have taken the time and effort to make a gift.  We do have one gift to finish.  we bought one relative a big biscuit jar but before we wrap it we are going to make a load of cookies to fill the jar.

I hope your christmas gifts are coming along well.  If I don't get time to post before Christmas I hope you all have a good one.  Thank you to all the people who have left comments you have made me feel part of something that is wonderful.  At last I have found a place where it's ok to make things!

Don't forget to go over to Tami's to look at some more wonderful WIPs
