Some Christmas Crafting

Here's my brand new great-nephew, Aiden, wearing the hat I knit for him. 
I knit a few more hats for Christmas gifts. I enjoyed this pattern I knit up in Vanna's Choice in linen,

 and again in Red Heart Sparkle yarn. I love the decrease pattern on top.
 Then I knit this easy 2x3 rib in Wool-Ease and again with a blue border.
Okay, these were not Christmas projects but I did want to share them with you.
 I love the embroidery vining along the rick-rack on this pink kitten pincushion. I don't really plan these out, just see what works as I go along.
 I brought these pincushions along to my last craft fair and sold this Scottie Dog cutie.
 I participated in Sue's (It's a Very Cherry World) Christmas tag swap. This is the tag front, (sorry about the shadows)
 and the tag back. My partner likes Shabby Chic style, so that was what I was going for.
 I also made this pink Christmas Button Fairy as a surprise for my swap partner's daughter.
And I added in some vintage image gift tags. I hope one day that this swap package actually arrives to it's destination in Mexico. Neither my swap package or my partner's package have been received.  :-( 
I've already joined one Valentine swap, so there'll be more crafting soon.
