Secret Santa

Well I had craft group on Wednesday and it was decided we had to bring something worth roughly $5 to exchange. Sadly there were only 3 people actually there so for the last week we didn't have much of a party! But I had a lot of fun though I didn't feel like stitching much.

I don't really have any progress on anything much to show but hopefully I will soon. I will show you what I made for a gift though. I kind of got the idea from the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Magazine this year with the gingerbread cupcake. But I didn't have a fancy stitchable cupcake mold so I had to glue it in.

A couple of different angles there! I made the top look like icing and sprinkles with some french knots thrown in. I followed my imagination there wasn't any pattern. It was fun to do but awful to glue in place. I had to hold it for 30 minutes to let the glue dry.

The cording was fun to do it's the pink and green I used spun together and then folded in half. I like the effect of this and for something I was experimenting on it's pretty amazing I think. Though I'm also not rushing out to make another one any time soon!! Too much effort though I might make one with one of my patterns... maybe??

I should have a crochet update if nothing else in the next couple of days as I'm getting closer to a partial finish.
Happy Stitching,
