As I stalked my partner for the Christmas stocking swap I found she had a peg chess set on pinterest so I decided what a neat stocking stuffer, all the peg pieces in a drawstring tote, perfect for a stocking.  Since I am a hoarder of all things crafty I happened to have a game box that was the perfect gift to add as an extra.  I set out with a slew of peg people in an attempt to duplicate her pin,  Here are the results.

Very delightful painting. But Wow, won't that make for a confusing game! Of course, I only recently started playing chess. So I guess if you are good at it, things would make more sense.

I thought so too!  I don't play but maybe it would be a good way to cheat since I think it would be hard keeping up with your pieces.  Inside the box are traditional playing pieces so maybe displayed this way would just be a conversation piece of art!

Very cool!   Cheesy  I don't play chess but I love the idea of themed chess sets.
