Christmas Cheer is Almost Here!

Seems like forever since I've been here. In between working I've managed to fill another order for some Christmas cozies. 

But I have to say I'm a little annoyed that I couldn't pin myself down long enough to participate in this year's NaNoWriMo, write a novel in month challenge, like I'd planned on. It was supposed to jump start me into writing my next kid's book. Oh well, there's always next November. Then again, I could be stalling. I suppose there's nothing stopping me from holding my own little challenge after Christmas. 
But aside from being so hard on myself I have to say I really enjoyed making these cozies. Here's my Midnight and Snowflake Bunny cozy.
She's a six-cup cutie. All three cozies have been sold to Cobblestone Cottage, a kitchen store not far from me. They tell me the cozies are selling teapots! 
This is Norwegian Teal. She's a two-cup beauty wearing a traditional knitting pattern from Norway that I found in 
Then there's my two-cup Swedish Sweetie, wearing another traditional knitting pattern from that lovely part of the world, also from the same book. She's my favourite. 
And last but not least, my six-cup Jingle Bell Reindeers, wearing happy Christmas bells to herald in a joyful sound.
