Links to...Some Stuff

Here's a post I started the other night and forgot all about.

After I hit the lottery, I will be hiring someone just to come up with creative and entertaining post titles.

Over at Retro Mama, there's a pattern for a felt partridge ornament that I just love. I'm probably not going to have time to make one of these but if I do, I will make a mama partridge and a baby one. And call them Shirley and Keith.

Kandra of Sibling Craftery is sharing the cutest robot Christmas elves embroidery patterns. I'm not a super huge fan of robots (sorry, Kandra) but I do love these. If I ever finish the ornaments from the freebies at Wild Olive, I'll start on these robots. Or maybe I should just make things when I feel like it all through the year and if they're done in time for a holiday, fine. If not, just save them for next year.

Now let me add a few more things.

Remember those paper chains we used to make in school for the holidays? I'm sure kids still are still doing that nowadays too. I always want to...ahem, whip one up every year but never get around to it. Well, thanks to this nifty printable holiday paper over at Whip Up, I started one last night. I didn't finish it because my bottle of Elmer's is pretty dried up but I'll get it done this week.

I also plan to do something with some of the Holiday 2009 papers from A Print A Day. Look for a post about my efforts in about 11 months. :P

If I had kids, I would totally make these felt embroidered handprint ornaments for their grandparents. Thanks to The Empty Bobbin for the great idea!

Guess what? I just popped over to Craft Gossip to see what Denise had posted lately on Needlework News and found something I must cross stitch right this very minute so I am out of here. If you're still looking for holiday projects, be sure to check out Craft Gossip and also One Pretty Thing.
