Well, I've finished two embroidery wall hangings. One for my front door and my entrance way.

I've also been adding a hexagon diamond each day to my scrappy quilt and at least spending an hour top stitching together my
eagle quilt. Those will take awhile to finish, but they're getting worked upon.

My cookies have just about vanished and so I'm off to the kitchen to make more. Not sure if its the kids or me who have eaten the most.

I've been busy baking up cookies last week. I've butter, gingerbread, and a brownie roll out cookie. All delicious and even tried my hand at some of those Grinch cookies I've been seeing on pinterest.

So, today I decided it was time to get busy decorating. I've been at it for two hours and my hands hurt and I'm not even finished yet. Though I am having fun and looking forward to doing more, but with a few changes.

First Snowman of 5

Well the peg dolls my husband had turned were calling me to get busy painting. I'm making a set of five similiar to ones I had seen on pinterest.

Of course, Skunky was of a mind to cuddle and not let me paint. I had to keep putting her down, but she would just climb up the back of my chair and curl up under my chin.

Peg Dolls Anyone

I've enjoyed painting my peg dolls and my husband has been busy trying his hand at turning them.

He started with the simple girl form (the cone with head design) and it looks great. Went to turn another and I asked him to try and do more of a tear drop for the body. My thinking is they would look great as snowmen. He's done real well at those. I've asked for 3 more so I can make my set for mom.
My husband turning out one of the many of my peg doll army. Lol

These are his first three. The darker one slightly in the background is what he used for his template.

Class Competition

Thought I'd share all the teachers hard work in preparing for this quarters theme. Voting will be taking place by the church members on the 17th of this month. Oh, the wait.....

Pro Now the Hand

My first bow and it took me less than 5 minutes to make.

Small Things

Last week I bought myself a pom pom maker set and 4 peg dolls. To use to help complete my window in Sunday School.
Only to discover just how much fun it can be.

With my pom pom makers I made two trees, 3 tumbling penquins, and the ball on top of the gumball snowglobe.

With the peg dolls I made carolers. Then we went to the store so I could buy more. Also created a boy to go on a candy sleigh. These things can be addictive.

My husband decided to join in by turning (lathe work) peg dolls for me. He had fun and I'm already asking him to make me more. I painted a snowman and two penquins.

This was me playing around and I put this little guy together.
