Too early to be thinking of Xmas?? :/

After my daughters' Birthday is out of the way on Monday, i have no more people to make presents for. I've found myself thinking of christmas gifts for people already!! Bit previous maybe?

Not at all! If you start now, you can make bigger, more elaborate stuff! They'll appreciate it, trust me!

Iv been thinking about it for a month, then I decided to start making some wines as they will be ready by then Happy
Other than that I like making small bits of (chain)mayle which are pretty post friendly and friends seem to love the uniqueness of the pieces

I'm way cheap that's why I try to do everything handmade or on sale early, lol.

I've been thinking about it - but as usual will probably leave it until the week before as usual!

I've been thinking about it but haven't started yet. I want to crochet a kimono cardi for my mum, so I probably should start now. My friend who is heavily pregnant and close to popping has finished all hers already, cause she knows she will have no time to do it once the baby is born.

Teen was a September baby so I know that one well.
I'm in the same boat in a strange way with going back to school.
That said I've just been to Freemont market and have all the supplies I need ;0).
Paper,cord and chains.Happy Sunday afternoon

I have to really stay focused--I have three (THREE!!) weddings in September and October (one of which is my older sister's) and all I want to do is start on Christmas gifts. I'm planning a puzzle roll for the boyfriend, since we love to do puzzles together but neither one of us have the heart to take them apart once we're finished. For my younger sister, I've been collecting (hoarding) stuff to make a Royal Wedding scrapbook, since she's mildly obsessed. What's everyone else making?

You're not early.
I saw christmascards and decorations in a store today. (Wich is extremely early since we have Sinterklaas in The Netherlands before Christmas. And I didn't saw any Sinterklaas candy yet..)

I made a purse (bought the plastic shell and added the fabric, it was awesome), bought 2 board games for cheap, painted 4 drinking glasses and I'm going to make Margarita popcorn with it.
Also done a bunch of canning (spicy pickles!) and have a quilt to make (with mostly free material!).

I want to eat the pickles so bad but they take 2 weeks to turn from cucumber to pickle lol.
