I'm making a lot of my Christmas presents this year. . .for friends and co-workers, it's gonna be Salsa Verde (for the guys) and for the girls, fleece neck scarves similar to this pattern: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2009/10...ece-scarf.html It saved me a LOT of money because the first one I made was from fleece at $7/yard, on sale for $4.50. . .the others were made from fleece blankets I found varying in price from $2 to $3 each (the pattern I used needed 3 different colors/patterns). I can make 3 scarves from each little blanket. My BIG problem is that my son ran into my sewing machine the day he was ill when he was over here and destroyed it. . .I can't pick up thread now because there is something damaged with the tension, and I don't think I can do a very good job hand sewing the layers together. The remaining scarves (I only have 5 done) will either have to be single layers, or done on a machine that I have begged or borrowed from a friend.

Other than that, the TV was purchased today, got 2 pillow pets at Kohl's last weekend, picked up a couple pair of earrings from the Joma note posted by Christine for $8.99 a couple of weeks ago - valued at over $100! (except I got them for $4.-something!), and everyone else is getting a little cash for Christmas, so basically (other than figuring out what to do with the rest of the scarf fleece!), I'm through!

Our Christmas will be different this year. Not only because of what is going on around here but because we will be on our cruise for 2 weeks. I pray that nothing gets worse while we are away.

I sure hope you can get a machine, so sorry yours is in need. I'd let you use one of mine, I have 4. 2 cabinets and 2 portables.
This is a great idea Magie!! I just threw away a pair of fleece jammy bottoms, cause they got stretched out and I didnt know what to do with them. I'm getting them back out of the garbage, and washing them, and HELLO new scarf!!!!! Thanks for the great idea!
