So much to do, so little time

So, it's been a while!
Christmas is hurtling towards us at an alarming rate.  I'm still trying to finish the big brown blanket, which seems to have stopped growing.  I keep going round and round and round, and I swear it's still the same size.

I'm also working on a Secret Santa.  This is causing me quite a headache.  I was going to make my recipient a lovely scarf.  I'd bought the yarn and everything...except when I was notified of my giftee, it turns out she lives abroad.  Somewhere HOT.  So, she's not going to need a scarf, a hat or wrist-warmers then.  Hmmm.  I've decided on a cushion. I'll post a pic of that at a later date.

I'm also trying to crochet for the knitting groups Christmas Fair.  I've made a few simple flowery pin cushions so far, and some teeny tiny Christmas stockings for tree decorations, but I think I'm somewhat lacking in inspiration.
There is something I did make and finish all in one day.  These lovely wrist-warmers which I made for my 10 year old daughter.

No pattern, I just made it up as I went along, but made notes so I could do the second one the same.

And will you look at that button!
  I bought a 1KG mixed bag of buttons from ebay and there were 2 of these lovely, sparkly buttons.  Perfect!

Now, back to the blanket....
