|Made 3 of these.|
Last year I made them each Christmas trees and the year before that I made Santa Claus ornaments. This snowman is crocheted and the pattern can be found here along with some other ornaments. I might try the Gingerbread Man next year!
I also found the most adorable pattern for a bookmark. It's called the Cat in the Hat Inspired bookmark and was very fast to crochet. The pattern is here.
These will go in the 'stocking stuffer' bag that I always make up for my three nieces. So cute!

My two nephews are in college now but they never get too old for me to give them 'stocking stuffer' bags, too. Obviously, the contents are a bit different than the ones for the girls. I included a crocheted 'soap sack' in each of their bags. These make up very fast. I used 100% cotton worsted weight yarn. The idea is to use the soap while inside the bag and give yourself a good scrubbing. When you're finished, you hang the bag with the bar of soap in it on a hook to dry. You can find the pattern here. Hope the guys like them.

There are a few other items I made that I can't show on this blog but I will say that I've been busy. Any downtime I've had from recording/research/editing I've used to make gifts.
Oh, I did take time, along with George to decorate our tree. I took this pic from upstairs looking down on the tree in our family room. I should probably have asked for photography lessons for Christmas.
