Some of the things I am planning on this year take a while to settle down. Perfumes for one, and tinctures for another. I was thinking of doing a pine sap soap and shoe polish set for my dad.
So I've started the holiday craftravaganza! Have you?
I'm sort of starting this weekend. Going shopping tomorrow for supplies to do some knitted boot slippers for my daughter, my niece's 3 daughters and probably my sisters. The pair this weekend will be for me, though, as a test run before making any I'll be giving away. Plus, I want a pair before the cool fall weather starts.
I just remembered that I have actually started, though. I've canned one batch of pickles and most of those jars will be gifts. Still have to make at least one other batch to have enough for gifts and for us. Also will be canning some salsa to give away, too.
Yes started... been making things to keep busy and use up some 'older' yarn. Really want to buy new yarn in 2014 so this is motivation to give a 'handmade' holiday for me. Plus I have several birthdays at the end of the year (sister and father ugh) plus DS is in Sept.
This are really busy from Sept til the New Year. I love the fall season and even though its 100 degrees here I'm buried in yarn.
And I need to make DS a halloween hat ;)
