Stitching & Baking

So I've been working on (and dreaming about) these upcoming Christmas stockings. I downloaded Wee Wonderful's Elf Stitchette pattern a few days ago and have been working on the little elfette here and there during the last couple of days. I have to say, I would have never thought of using only one color for the entire elf but I LOVE it. I mean, really, really love it. Sometimes I need to hop on out of this box I'm thinking in.

And this morning when I opened my Google Reader I noticed some little elf legs peeking out over at Soule Mama's house too - no one can resist these little guys!

We have a big day of baking scheduled today - some fruitcake cookies (which I think sound terrible buy my mom swears they're wonderful), peanut butter bon bons, cranberry white chocolate oatmeal cookies (with orange zest & cinnamon- yum!), peanut butter fudge, some chocolate-dipped peppermint marshmallows (Sandi totally inspired me!), butterscotch pudding cookies, and I'm sure there are a couple that I've forgotten. Pictures & recipes tomorrow!


  1. How DARLING is that elf?! Oh my.

    And your new banner pic? LURVE!

    Oh, your photos are always so lovely. I cannot WAIT for my Nikon to get here!

    Hope the day o' baking was glorious.

  2. And also, you need to put a link to your Etsy store in your sidebar!!
