One day closer to Christmas.

Not that I needed to remind you how close it's getting to Christmas. I may however need to remind MYSELF how close it's getting I still have half a sweater for my nephew and another present for my niece and something for my nephew. I have finished this cute little giraffe what do you think? I don't think I stuffed his neck enough. He kinda hangs his head. LOL anyways what do you think? If you were say 2 would you like it? I followed a Japanese pattern book. I think I did rather well. esp for not being able to read a LICK of Japanese. Thankfully they have these wonderful diagrams and beautiful pix and charts to follow. I'm already thinking of the next one I'm going to make.... I love looking at the books.. Sigh...
tomorrow is cookie day... yippie. I love making cookies. I was thinking about making some snicker doodles... And sugar cookies. Of course some of the ginger snaps I made before and maybe some gingerbread men. YUMMY.. Most of them will be given away for "gifts" and then of course some will be sent in to school for the party. So not all of them will sit on my hips after the new year. LOL

Love the little giraffe,very cute. Do you know you can cut down little chopsticks and insert them into the body to hold the head up much better.

AHHH!! You made the giraffe from the Amigurumi Collection book!! That is so rad. I've got one that is still in progress. For some reason, I just can't get into it. But it's like one of the cutest ones in that book. Oh well. WIP's are WIP's I guess! Thanks for the inspiration!! Hope your Christmas was a good one!!!!
