Cheeky Christmas Elves

My family give lotto packs to each other for Christmas instead of a gift, I made these into little clips to attach to the lotto packs, they loved them :)

Mini pegs glued to the back of plastic aida.

Hope everyone had a safe happy and merry Christmas.

The first ATC I've made, sent to England for the September's unknown if she received it or not, after many messages from me and the swap organizer she wont give us a straight answer. She also said she posted the one to show yet.
A happier swap..Lucinda received this one I made and I received hers (see previous post) This is also Lucinda's photo she took, I forgot to take one but I like this :-)

Sew Happy

This is my elusive sewing comes out of hiding about once a year, we are not usually on good terms
but today it decided to behave (or I had more confidence with it).
This is what I sewed..what is it?
A Q-snap cover! I used this tutorial, it was so easy to follow I made two of them.
Now to spend the rest of this cold rainy day stitching. :-)

Oriental Fans

This is my favorite finish so far.....although not a great kit bought of eBay the chart was a bit dodgy with English words tapped over Chinese and unknown brand cotton, I adapted the chart a little. The photo doesn't do it justice with all its pretty colors its a finish that doesn't  fail to make me smile whenever I look at it.

Christmas Ornament Swap

My first swap through facebook cross stitch swap group. This one I did was happily received by a lady in Canada. Sadly I'm yet to receive one myself.
