Holiday gifts and an OLD project

These Alien Pillows were very fun and easy to work up. They went quickly and the Pomp-A-Doodle yarn is nice to work with :o) The kids thought they were a hoot and now all of them including the cousins want one for themselves. Something to keep in mind.......
Alien Pillows
Pattern by Red Heart
The Antenna took quite awhile to knit and then to sew pom poms to the end. All in all very worth the effort judging by the reactions when they were opened :o)
The kids loved them!! My neighbor loved them so much she wants me to make a few for our annual school auction. We'll see how I feel - right now, I'm a little "knitted out". My mojo has left me.
A super simple necklace. Wire and pendant from Michael's.
Assembly time: 8 seconds!
Another one
Not such a great picture, but the best of the lot.
I have brought back this Christmas stocking out of hiding. It is intended for my oldest daughter. I have seven of these in different patterns - one for each of us. I have lofty goals to say the least!!
I worked on it last night and am remembering how much fun cross stitch is - even though my eyes are not as good as they used to be!! Maybe this year I will finish it. There is not too much left to stitch and then there will be the finishing, but hopefully with some consistent attention, progress will be made.

Those pillows are a hoot! I bet they are very cuddly :)

Good luck finishing your stockings...they will be heirlooms when finished :)
