I am a bit late..

Hello everyone.. I am still running behind but I thought I would show you my Christmas Stocking that I made for my Annual Christmas Swap... I had a great time making this little guy. I used variegated, and silver threads on it. I have to admit.. I made a mistake on it.. I discovered the mistake when I edited the photos. I didn't even notice until it was already in the mail. Do you see the mistake??
OH well makes it all the more one of a kind :O) 
I hope my partner loved hers.. I was very excited when I received my exchange from her :O)
 I will modify this post soon to show all of you her lovely stocking!

I also made a fun craft apron for my daughter out of used jeans.... The center pocket has a zinger to attach your scissors and the pocket is to keep them tucked out of the way when not in use ;O)

Last time I visited I showed you some hats I made. Today I have a stack o'scarves to show you.

The purple and pink edged scarves are fleece and the rest are flannel.  When I started making them I used this tutorial but after a couple of scarves I started making them like burp cloths. The burp cloth way was much easier and quicker.

Most of the scarves were sent off to the nieces and their kiddos in Missouri and Tennessee  and I have a few left to go in the shop. I bought tons of fleece and flannel when JoAnn's had their Black Friday sale so I can make more when I feel the urge.
