Lots of Christmas Sewing

Well, the plans for my Christmas dress fell through, but that's ok. I'm going to wear a lovely dress I made back in November. It didn't help things that I was really sick for a couple weeks.

Currently I'm sewing a professional tote from Creative Thimble. I really love the features in it and it's going to be outstanding with the fabrics I chose. Here's my progress thus far:
I've also rediscovered my love for knitting. I've knitted two pairs of socks and now I'm knitting scarves. Here's the first scarf I got done:
I wouldn't have thought I would have time for knitting since I hardly ever have time for sewing, but I've found a good bit of time. See, with sewing you have to sit at the machines and get things set up, etc. Not easy to do with various people yelling "Mommy....!" However, with knitting I can do it in the car, while snuggling on the couch with the little ones, it's very flexible.

I'm currently working on a second scarf, then I'll do a scarf and hat for my baby daughter and sew some pajamas for my oldest two. I am really enjoying doing Christmas projects.
