Just curious.

I am into foods this year. So far, I've made some infused vodkas (cranberry/lime) and come cinnamon sugar almonds (crockpot).

I am also making a few small quilts, some cell phone holders, and some paper gifts(sets of notecards).

What is on your list of "must make" stuff?

Not really making much. The cross-stitch projects I did as a Christmas present went to the framers in October. The cross-stitch project that will be a present for my mother-in-law at Mother's Day is finished and ready to go to the framers. The project that will be a March birthday present will hopefully be started this weekend. :)

Grad school is taking up a lot of my time and I still haven't managed the intricacies of a very flexible "work" schedule (grad school is my work) and getting other things done...

There will be a lot of cookies if nothing else.

I've made 37 Christmas Balls from Arne and Carlos' book. They aren't kidding when they say they're addicting. And you don't have to be a great knitter to make them. Cast on, knit, increase, decrease, cast off and that's it.

I'll tie them onto packages as an extra present.

I've made 2 crocheted ruffle scarves so far and I've got a beaded necklace designed that needs to be strung.

I may make a couple smaller ruffle scarves for a couple little girls in town, I just need to find out their favorite colors first.

Other than that, cookies and nothing else I can think of.

Between work and kids... not much.

I will be crocheting or knitting something. I am sewing dresses for the girls but I started assuming that they wouldn't be finished soon so they will still fit in the spring.

DD#1 and I will probably do cookies and make drawings and cards for grandparents.

I was happy with my first knitting project and that seems to faster than crocheting so I may be working on that hobby a bit more.

We wound up doing Christmas with Gary's parents in mid-January. I didn't get to make any gifts this year, except for the Candied Pecans for FIL. He enjoys them and they don't take very much hands on time, so I always try to make them the night before they arrive. I have a small collection of cookie and candy tins that I've picked up at thrift shops and yard sales for a dime or a quarter each. He usually returns the tin to me for a "refill" the next year.
