In addition to my busy Christmas gift making schedule, I have also been taking home a lot of painting and stitching work for my job. This is all stuff that we're going to be selling in the next year or so....so you definitely didn't see this here.

I have been a very busy girl this week. So here for your viewing pleasure are some pictures of things I have finished.

Card Swap

Here are my 10 cards for geekpixie's card swap.
Holiday Cards

Sheep Bag

Completed 11/15/05

Sheep Bag
Stitched with wool on canvas - a very bad idea, by the way. And yes, that is 80 million french knots making up the sheep's body.

Entrelac scarf

Finally put the fringe on this baby - made with an alpaca/wool blend yarn that I dyed myself. This sucker is very warm and soft.

Fuzzy orange scarf

This is my cheap Target yarn scarf. It's soft and fuzzy, and barely weighs anything.

Fuzzy Orange Scarf

Feather and Fan Scarf

Finished 11/16/05. Made with 2 skeins of Moonlight Mohair. It's purple, fuzzy, and sparkly. Yay!

Two paint by numbers down...four to go. I'm quite enjoying the fact that I get to pay myself for painting. It's kind of a pain in the ass, but also fun. Haven't worked on Jesus in a while, since I've been too busy with all the work crafting, but will hopefully get back to him soon. Have had more ideas to help make him even more ghetto-fabulous.

Plan of attack for this weekend is to work on the rest of the paint by numbers and work on my cards for the card swap. I have lots of ideas, but some of them have certain logistical problems which still need to be worked out. Hopefully, I will be able to get at least some of my ideas to work. I'd feel bad making a bunch of crappy cards and being like, "Here. I made these for you." Lots of pressure to produce something good...and yet, my creativity is somewhat lacking lately. I'm a girl of very little brain these days. But, we shall have to wait and see....
