More Embroidery Hoops

Since I bought three embroidery hoops the other day, here's another one. I like the reindeer theme and wanted to make this one from hama beads, but decided to read the hama pattern as an cross stitch pattern and made this:

Thank you, Cara & Rhonda and Jill!

Stockings for the Tree

At the blog of Joann (not that I know her) I found this cute pattern for little socks for the X-mas Tree. After making the first one, I wanted more. With different patterns.


My Crochet Candy Cane Cushion was featured last week by Sew Can Do, by Purfylle and by The Cottage Market!!

Thank you very much, Cheryl, Stella Lee and Andrea!!

Reindeer Cupcakes

Yesterday was the yearly X-mas Diner at the Elementary School of my daughters. On the internet I saw these cute little reindeer cupcakes months ago and I knew that would be the thing I would make for their classes. In the supermarket they sell ready made cupcakes, so they only thing I have to do is add antlers and a nose, I thought.
Of course I didn't think about sold out cupcakes for just one moment, but that was just what was going on when I did my shopping yesterday. And I couldn't bring up the desire to bake forty cupcakes now that I thought the treats would be finished in just an hour.
So the bottom you see in the picture aren't cupcakes, but another cookie (Filled Cook(ie)s, people call them here in The Netherlands; the filling being a mix of sugar and almonds, that tastes a bit like marsipan). A good enough alternative, I think.

Wanted #52
