I actually picked up a needle this last week!! I was mending a pair of leggin's for Meg. I will have to take a pic of her wearing them...
This is my elf on a shelf....I made him quite a few years ago. I embroidered the design on the blanket too, back when my first daughter was a child! I made it for her dolls that she never played with. She preferred hotwheels. But she was always a GIRL!!
My 2 elves. Don't ask me why this pic is upside down....operator error most likely.
I did the crossstitch too. Back long ago, one of the magazines had contests all the time, so to help keep some sanity and creativity, I entered almost every one of them! Never won, but that's ok.
Funny...if you go to the link of the magazine...I made several of the shells pictured on the front!
