Well truthfully, the shawl (42 of 50) was completed in October...but I was rather lazy when it came to blocking it. So glad it's done...and just in time for Christmas gifting. I hope the recipient will like it!
I was obviously optimistic about my ability to do cross-stitch. Early in November, I downloaded a freebie pattern ("Christmas Morning" by Felicity Hall) and figured I could get this done in a couple of weeks...right?
Here's what it looked like on the first day...
and here's where I'm at 4 weeks later.
Oy vey. Will I get this done by Christmas 2011?!?

Meet Mikey, the mischievious monster minion (40 of 50). I found him hiding among my teacups and mugs...probably up to no good, per usual. He was made with the RevoluzZza Monster (aka Monster Ninni) pattern! Eep!!! Mikey has been shipped off to his new home (hopefully he'll be good and won't cause too much mayhem there...), but I will be making a couple more to hand out to friends and family because I think everyone needs a wee monster in their life!
It has been ages (hmmm, at least 8 years?) since I've played with polymer clay...and I've forgotten how much fun it can be. Saw some cute birdie-shaped pendants and decided that I could easily make a batch of them (38 of 50). I used translucent polymer and painted and sealed the pieces after curing.
The birdies were missing something...and I finally figured out what!
