What things will you be making for Christmas gifts this year?

So far I've decided to make:
~Flash card pencil holders for teachers (no sewing involved here).
~Quilt for nephew (bought the fabric yesterday, haven't decided on a pattern yet though).
~Tablerunner for hubby's aunt (I drew her name for gift exchange) and maybe some matching kitchen towels.
~New stockings for my children.

Guess I better get busy!

I already posted the picture of our new son-in-laws Christmas stocking that I made.

Today I finished the nightie for my 3 year old granddaughter and her baby doll.

Thank you Renee. I was really pleased. I was talking to my daughter via skype last night & when I held them up my son in law walked through and saw them and said how much she is going to love it. That meant alot to me.l

I'm doing two quilts, one for my parents, on for my in-laws.
The first is a double irish chain, in turquoise, wine, and gold, and the second is a mariner's compass in primary colours and black. lemme see if I can get some pics up for you guys.

I table quilt (still have to quilt) - Made 4 blankets out of blizzard fleece - one black and white & red lap quilt (still working on this) I still have one more tote to make. These gifts are all for the girls I work with. I also have 2 fleece blanets to make for my granddaughter and grandson. I have been working on these since September and hope I can get everything completed by Christmas!
