Best Nine of 2016 on Instagram

This year was full of lots of awesome crafts. My Instagram #BestNineof2016 proves that everyone likes my knitted sweaters for sure!

They also like unicorns, both pooping and floating.

Festival of Lights Hanukkah Embroidery

Can you tell I've been crafting my face off this year? Cause I have.

This year, my friend Liz of cozyblue released a Hanukkah embroidery pattern. I've made a lot of Liz's patterns lately (see the Holiday Ornament Trio, for example) and I thought this one would be perfect for my mother-in-law.

Embroidered Holiday Ornament Trio

It's the first day of December, and our Christmas tree is up. Actually it's been up for almost a week. Ironically enough, this is thanks to my Jewish husband bugging the crap out of me the day after Thanksgiving.

A few months ago, I made these awesome embroidered holiday ornaments that my friend Liz (a.k.a. Cozyblue) designed. I made them so long ago that I actually forgot to put them on the tree until Alex reminded me.
