I have lots of things I didn't get done this year that will get moved to 2015 but I still made WAY over 100 projects!

Here are some Christmas cookies I made.  They turned out really good and are super easy!

I followed the recipe except I exchanged the regular M&M's with peppermint M&M's.   SO good

Here's the pin/recipe

Oh and don't you just love my mug rug??  artsycandice made it for me Wink

2  Cupcake Ornaments in Winter Holidays by lindyv321 on: December 15, 2014 09:55:59 AM
While stalking my partner for the Secret Santa swap I stumbled on a pin for these super cute cupcake ornaments.  I decided to make one for her and one for my partner in the stocking swap.  I used mini cupcake liners, mini bulbs, fake snow,  a red bead, and seeds beads to make these ornaments. 

I wish I had used more fake snow on them, especially the blue one.

For kittykill I made a mini snowglobe pendant and a cluster pendant

For quaggy I made a snowflake pendant

I also made her a felt brooch

Now I need to make some of these for myself!

4  Winter in Needlework: Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: December 15, 2014 09:37:37 AM
I started this project last year for the Friends of Craftster Raffle swap but it never got finished.  I pulled it out and finished it as my submission for the December theme in the Ongoing Hoopla Stitchalong.  The pattern is from Urban Threads  I used a back stitch and chain stitch.

I am not sure that I would ever use a chain stitch as a fill stitch in the future since I have discovered better ways to fill but I think it looks nice.

Here is my December entry.  I started this hoop a year ago an never finished it but the winter theme was the perfect excuse to pull it out and get it done.

6  Retro Camper in Needlework: Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: December 15, 2014 09:29:47 AM
I was partnered with quaggy in Secret Santa Swap and I knew she liked hoops.  I browsed designs on Etsy and when I saw this one I knew it had to be made for her.  It's a Retro Camper by Lova Revolution

When I printed the design out I had meant to make it smaller so it would fit in a 6 or 7 inch hoop.  Ooops!  Luckily I had this big old hoop laying around which fit the design perfectly.  I also found it nice to stitch a bigger design.  It was a happy mistake!

The only issue I had is when I rinsed off the stabilizer it made the fabric wrinkle in a few places and I couldn't get them out even with the iron...

They look scared cause they know they are about to get chomped on!

Here is what I sent to quaggy in the Secret Santa Swap:
A Shrine of course!  I have been playing around with different inks and paints which is how the base of shrine was finished.

A retro camper hoopla

Cupcake ornament

Set of Christmas note cards

A water free snowglobe made out of a tiny baby food jar.

A felt brooch & snowflake necklace

Two cork ornaments and a snowman ornament

And finally two snowmen magnets

I also finished a hoop that was on my WIP project list.  It was started last year for the Friend of Craftster Raffle Swap and never finished.  I pulled it out and finished it off so I can post it for the December theme in the Hoopla Along

Everyone has received such great stuff!  I am glad you enjoyed your package quaggy.  I received from emilywilde and was super spoiled also!

First up is an awesome knit scoodie.  I don't have anything knit so this was extra special

Also a knit ear warmer, headband, thingy that I don't know what it's called but I love! 

Two rings made with real minerals off my Pinterest

A gorgeous necklace that I wore on Saturday which came in a neat skull tin

And I meant to get a better picture of the awesome Edward Gorey fabric that she sent but must not have.  You can see a bit of it in the pictures of the jewelry.  I have no idea what I am going to make with it but it will be something special for sure!

Thank you so much!

9  Felt House Ornaments in Winter Holidays by lindyv321 on: December 12, 2014 08:36:13 AM
My partner in the Mini 12 Days of Christmas swap had these house ornaments pinned.  I clicked the link to the seller on Etsy PitterPattery and found that she sells them already assembled.  After some messaging back and forth she agreed to sell me the same set but just the pieces so that I could sew them up myself.  I made a set of four for the Sweat Shop Ornament Swap and a set of four for my 12 Days partner.

Here are the ones I sent to my partner in the 12 Days Swap

and this is the set I sent out for the Ornament Swap
