For my poultry partner in crime I stitched up some little chickens. The pattern was listed as a freebie off of a french site called Balades et Broderies par Carmela. I made 6 of them and personalized each for the members of her family.
As a "Sneaky Bookmark" I stitched up the S'more from Brooke's Books "Patriotic Picnic" series; added some punny words & hid it inside my library book. It was sent back to where ever it was transferred in from in the book "Time's Convert" by Deborah Harkness. It'd been a bit since I read the trilogy that comes before (the third segment came out July of 2014) so I was a bit lost trying to remember characters in this one. I would recommend reading or rereading all four back to back if you're interested in this title.
Then there is this cute little minion ready for some festivities. I have done it up as an ornament for a friend whose nickname is indeed Minion. I don't know the back story on how he wound up with it but I rarely hear anyone, beyond his mama when she calls me to chat, referring to him by his first name.
For my farmers, someone will be receiving this parcel car; pattern for this is found in the 2018 Ornament edition of Just CrossStitch Magazine. Designer is Cheryl McKinnon. As well as this tree cupcake (Maria Diaz).
