Have you made your Hot Chocolate yet? Lisa of MyCraftingBee.blogspot.com made this green little mug, above, with a few variations. She even added sequins to her snowflake embroidery. Nice!
Maureen, over at Maureen Cracknell Handmade, shared her beautiful Peace Dove, below, on her blog today.  I love the soft blue felt she used. Speaking of felt, she’s got a great selection of wool blend felt in her etsy shop. Visit her blog for details and a coupon code for 20% off any time this month!
