Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays! I just made it through Christmas by the skin of my teeth. I finished everything on time, for everyone though just barely. Being the big goof I am, I managed to give away the ornaments I made for my father and inlaws before I got pictures, or even finished writing the patterns. While I think I can complete the last snowflake pattern from memory, I will have to wait untill I am next visiting my family to get the needed pictures. It shouldn't be too long from now. In the interim I have this little pin to show for myself. Measuring with a fingernail, it is approximately 3.5cms. It's a little simple monogram H, for Hall, for no reason. I needed to have a little selfish project after all this Christmas crafting. It was worked up fairly quickly from felt scraps, some leftover embroidery floss, and a safety pin. The stitches are slightly abused: satin stitch, blanket stitch and whatever it took to attach the pin. The pin now resides on my wool coat, bringing a little colour and a touch of the alphabet to the party.
