Christmas by the Month - May

jamie_mtMay 3, 2005

Can you feel it? That's right, the slowing-down of our forward Christmas-planning momentum as we move into spring and brighter days! Don't let it grind to a halt! LOL

I'm not doing so well on my christmas projects - so I need to get caught up this month! Here are my goals for this month with regards to christmas planning:

1. Crochet at least two more squares for dad's afghan.

2. Finish the placemat/napkin set I'm working on now.

3. Finalize my plans for what I'm making, and who I'll be buying gifts for this year, so I can plan out the rest of my projects.

That's all for me - plenty to do with a busy month ahead. What will you do to get organized for Christmas 2005 this month? :-)

Jamie, what kind of afghan are you making for your Dad?

I finished knitting the striped stocking hat for my brother that matches the afghan I made for him last year. Now I'm sewing in the many ends and have to make a tassel.

My mother even asked me, "Did you start my vest yet?"
Ashamedly, I said no.

I do have more done on my daughter-in-law's Christmas present, a lacy scarf made of kid mohair, not that that's an excuse.

Oooh, I really need to pay my GW dues, don't I?

Met April's goals. I should probably keep May's easy as well.

Finish sister socks, block and put away.

Well done, ladies - moving along, slowly but surely!

Wendy, the afghan will just be square blocks of black, red, and blue chenille - very soft and cozy. :-)

I haven't had much time to work on it recently though - my mom needed some things made for her, so we're working on those at the moment. (Gift bags for her volunteer "end of the year" gifts)

Wow! This is my first visit here and I am impressed by all of you! I love the idea of prepping to Christmas month by month, but I'm so far behind on the yard and garden that I can't imagine it right now. Still, you have all inspired me! Thanks! Kris
