Hodge Podge of a Post

So remember way back when, in like November or something, when I said I would post pictures of my Christmas presents? Well, I'm now going to do so. But while I'm at it, I will also post some other random pictures of stuff that I've been doing around here.

Magazine Coaster that took 2 hours to make. It is rolled up strips of magazines that are then rolled together. Very time consuming but also very pretty.

Beginning of scarf for my mom, I didn't actually get a finished product picture. Oops!

Start of clutches for my nieces. I unfortunately also forgot to take a finished product shot. The bracelets you see in the picture were the handles on the clutches.
Cork Trivet. I sliced the corks and then sewed them together in this pattern. I forgot to take any "in progress" shots.

Cutting up the pictures so that they would fit on the memory cards.

Tracing the size to help with the cutting.

The backs of each memory card. Lizards for Jacob (my nephew)!

One of the many layers of mod podge we put on them.

I used this a lot. Both for the coasters and the memory game.
And that concludes all pictures pertaining to Christmas gifts. Once again, I apologize for not actually having very many good "in progress" pictures for some and then not any "finished" pictures for others. Oops!

Now, here is the baby blanket that I started knitting in May of 2010. Obviously I'm not a very dedicated knitter. But I finished it!

Pretty baby blanket
A close up of the colours and pattern. Sorry that my camera isn't that great.

Pretty! I can't figure out how to turn this picture, so sorry!
And since I'm on a roll, I thought I would add a picture of the fabulous cookies I made last night! Oreo Chocolate chip!
Alright, that's enough for one post. But I will be back later to post some more of my DIY projects I've been doing. Don't hold your breath though, it could take me a couple months to get around to it.
