Thanks Cheesy They loved the bags. Jake, the friend who asked for the purple bag, was really excited because the purple I used matches his favorite D20! lol

Mmm, homemade biscuits! I haven't made homemade biscuits in years and now want to give it a go!
33  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Baby's first Christmas stocking on: December 22, 2016 08:23:29 PM
This year is my son's first Christmas and this is his first stocking, handmade with love.
He's already given it his seal of approval: he drooled on it and tried to eat it. Roll Eyes

I made it using this free pattern from Ravelry. I messed up on the toe: I made it a bit too long. But at least my little guy has a stocking now! Cheesy
34  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Dice bags on: December 22, 2016 08:17:19 PM
I crocheted the two of these up last weekend for a couple of friends who were new the monthly Magic: The Gathering night hubby and I host once a month at our house. They saw the dice bag I had crocheted for my hubby and asked if I could make them dice bags.
One friend requested "any shade of purple" so I used Caron Deep Violet for his bag. The other friend requested "the brightest yarn you've got" so I used Red Heart Neon Stripes for his bag.

These are very simple to make and work up very quickly.
Here's a pattern for them:
12 DC in magic ring
2 DC in each DC around; 24 sts
*DC, 2 DC in next st*, repeat around; 36 sts
*DC in next 2 sts, 2 DC in next st*, repeat around; 48 sts
DC around evenly until bag is the desired depth.
For the last row:
*DC in next 2 sts, ch 1, sk next st*, repeat around; 48 sts (including the ch 1s)
For the drawstring, just chain until you reach the desired length then tie it off and make a knot at either end. It shouldn't come untied but I always burn the ends with a lighter, just to be sure. Keep in mind that I used acrylic yarn for these. I don't think you'd want to burn the ends on wool!

Project Name: Christmas Elf for Booboo
Project Link: Here
This was a Christmas gift for a good friend. I made it as an improved version of the elf I made a few years ago for a coworker's sister-in-law. This one is taller and, in my opinion, much cuter than her counterpart. She was made with a different sized hook and given plastic eyes instead of embroidered eyes. She was going to have a mouth like the other one but I forgot. Roll Eyes

For reference, this was the original elf:

This cute little elf was made for a good friend who mentioned she wanted an elf decoration for her home but thinks that the Elf on the Shelf is creepy.
As someone who shares that sentiment, I decided to crochet her an elf that is more on the cute side.

This is the only picture I got because I had forgotten to take pictures of her and didn't realize it until my hubby and I were almost there.
If anyone is curious, to make her hat have a slight point, I started with eight DC in a magic ring and it stands up because I pulled the stitches really tight.

Ooh Star Wars Christmas fabric! That is awesome, gozer! If we were giving gifts, I'd make gift bags but the only ones getting gifts are the kids in the family (my cousin's two kids, the nephews, and our baby) and I'm just going to hand them their gifts. Except the baby: hubby bought some cheap wrapping paper for me to wrap his gifts because my little froggy likes to rip paper.

Rockingbearranch, I love your bugs. They're so pretty! (I never thought I would say that I love bugs! lol)

Project Name: Ranger Cookies for Game Night
At least once a month my hubby and I host a game night at our house. It's never a lot of people, just five or six people and that's including the two of us. We play Magic: The Gathering and sometimes Cards Against Humanity (I love that game). We usually have some sort of chips for a snack but I decided since it's the holiday season I would bake some cookies for tonight. The improvisation was using walnuts instead of pecans, which I had never done with this recipe before. I think I actually prefer the walnuts over pecans for these cookies.

Gotta get the photos from my hubby because the photographer emailed the files to him.
