Hi, there, folks. I finished my January list before the end of January, but my last project on the list was for my Hot Cocoa Swap partner. She did finally get her package today, so I wanted to make the "official" report of this project!

We had to do "Blah Buster Buddies".... so I picked up some of my needle felting supplies that I have in my stash from years ago. I forgot how much fun it is to do this! I decided to make my swap pal a felted ram, as she loves sheep, and I thought this would be pretty cute. I didn't work off of a pattern per se, I just kind of kept working at it until I thought it was good to go! I give you Mr. Ram:

So, here is my list for the year as it stands now - with some updates:
8th: Sister's birthday - washcloths and scrubbies to make gift basket with soaps. DONE Jan 6th

17th: Brother-in-law's birthday - Helmet Liner (was scarf) - he never has something warm on his neck! DONE Jan 12th

30th: Hot Cocoa Swap Partner's "Blah Buster Buddy" - Mr. Ram - DONE Jan 30th (nothing like 11th hour needle felting! - poke faster!)

17th: Mom's birthday - UPDATE - Nomad Hat and Scarf from Interweave. This is in progress, and I'm on the middle of the first side of the scarf. Thanks, Marce for the heads up on this pattern!

19th: Friend Joyce's birthday - fingerless mitts - oooooh, I just don't know if I'll make it in time! Keep your fingers crossed for me! ha ha...

29th: Megan's Hat (for a friend's niece who has Leukemia)- see "Hats Off to Megan" DONE Jan 20th

19th: Friend Scott's birthday - wine bottle cozy (which will be gifted with the wine!)
