What's Happening Around Coffee Time

It's been a quiet holiday weekend at Coffee Time. My mail box is still looking for my Stitching Angel package and my Secret Santa package. However, I did win a drawing on Threadbare Creations and received these two adorable Christmas stitcheries. Thanks, Rose!
I finished the scarves from Joy's Scarf Along. I kept one for myself and the rest are gifts. I love them! I wore mine shopping the other day and received a few compliments and smiles on it.
I finally wound my Cosmo floss and put it in a box. I'm still looking for the right pattern to be able to use them, but for now they are fun to look at!
I've been working on my Gypsy Scarf from Learn a Stitch, Create a Scarf. I'm onto the second of three parts of it. I love it so far! The flower stitch in cream is a new one for me. It took me a few tries to figure it out, but I think I like it.
Today I plan to work on a few Christmas cards and goodie packages. I decided to send Christmas cards and stickers to our younger nieces and nephews. I figure they will enjoy getting their own Christmas mail.

What are you doing to get ready for Christmas?

Sweet P

There's something so satisfying about seeing those colorful floss spools all lined up *s*

Your scarves are gorgeous, and I too like the looks of floss all wound and looking jewellike. I should be doing lots of things, but instead, I'm working on Bonnie Hunters Carolina Christmas mystery. Oh well, hopefully it'll all get done in the end.

Your scarves are just way too cute! I may have to make myself one of those.
Today we put up our tree and my hubby hung the outside lights. I wrapped gifts for a box that needs to go to Wyoming and tried to knit a hackey sack for a stocking stuffer. I think that may have been a waste of time. We'll see once I get it stuffed. Tomorrow I'll hopefully get a couple of Christmas bags sewn up for a swap.
