All the mittens are well cute. I imagine they're satisfying to knit, too, as once you've started they're probably quite fast.

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.

This is a vintage ornament pattern that came printed on muslin.
I added beads and some embroidery and made it into a stuffed ornament.

I hope to finish another 4 or 5 of these before Christmas Smiley

Malgudi, your ornament reminded me of the ones my mother had when I was a child.  It is really sweet.  I love her face and rosey cheeks Smiley

We totally had those ornaments!!  My mom sewed up a dozen or two.  We still use them, and I snagged a bunch of them when I got married, because I can't imagine having a tree without them (I especially love the gingerbread men!).

just discovered Craftster this month.  I love this challenge and have started an ornament.  As soon as I figure out how to put a pic in the post I will post the ones I've finished.  Can hardly wait to hear the challenge for Feb.

Thank you so much for the sweetest compliments Grin

ineedart, there were 6 patterns printed on a muslin. I purchased the fabric on ebay about an year ago.
This craft-along gave me the motivation to work on them.

It's been a great month of crafting! In addition to my 3 pairs of mittens and 5 owls, I made some salt dough ornaments, a crocheted snowflake, and a framed Christmas cross stitch.

Salt Dough Ornaments:

(Yes, that's a pizza...my two-year-old said to make a pizza, so I made a pizza! Oh, and she painted the Christmas tree...I just finished it off for her.)

Crocheted snowflake (and crocheted Victorian lace motif that I will never do again!):

It's really hard to keep count while crocheting when constantly interrupted by an inquisitive kiddo!

Framed Christmas cross stitch:

It's from a kit I bought years ago and never opened. The frame's a $2 cheapo from Walmart. It's a 5x7.

That puts my total ornament (decoration) count at 16! I'm so thankful for this craftalong! I would not have finished ANY of this without it!

And here's a sneak peek of the play mat I'll be working on next month.
