Mine are done but I'm waiting until December 1st. One year I got them out right after Thanksgiving and had too many people comment on how I made them panic when my card arrived and they hadn't even starting thinking about Christmas yet.
I used to wait until December to make them, and would barely get them out in time to arrive by Christmas. Now I participate in the Christmas Card Challenge here at SCS and am finished making them in November. I actually got my November batch done early, so I'm going to spend the next week making sure my address list is current, signing them, and getting them ready to mail.
