Coral slip

I've been following a sew-a-long over at pattern~scissors~cloth.  Sherry has a self designed pattern for an awesome slip, so when I heard she was doing a sew-a-long using her pattern, I had to participate.  I'm not quite finished yet, I haven't decided if I will do spaghetti straps or store bought adjustable straps, either way I will have to make another trip to Hancock Fabrics, so it won't be till next week when I get done, but I couldn't wait until then to submit something to  Sew & Tell Saturday over at Sew Country Chick.
Any way this is what I have done  so far:

 I've never cut anything on the bias, so I was a little skeptical cutting this out, I was afraid I would mess it up and it wouldn't hang nicely, but over all I think I did a pretty good job and cutting it out wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, you just have to be more careful and not pull on the fabric when cutting it out and handling it.

Christmas Scarves

In our family, we try not to buy gifts for Christmas, when ever possible we  make our gifts.  I think it means more when you take the time and effort into making something for someone and its one of a kind.  Well this year I got started a little late, so I have a lot of catching up to do.  Between now and Christmas, I will be busy making all my gifts, I have a good idea what I'll be making everyone, its just a matter of having the time to do it.  It seems fashion scarves are in this season, so I thought I'd make a few, as well as winter scarves, this is my first infinity scarf I crocheted, I think it turned out pretty good.  I'll definitely be making more.
