The latest issue of A Needle Pulling Thread. Here are a few of the projects.
A really cute quilted wall hanging.
A wool applique table runner.
Knitting and felting.
A winter scene in cross stitch.
A cross stitched wreath.
And some knitted leg warmers.
I didn't show you the knitted hats, the punch needle stocking, the Australian Santa (one in a series of Santas around the world), the Celtic snowflake ornament and so much more. There are many great things about this magazine: it is in full colour, it has something for everyone and all the patterns are included for each project.

On the weekend we attended a couple of Christmas bazaars. One was about an hour north but my friend was there selling her pet beds and other paraphernalia and she told me it was a good show. I bought a few things but not much. Then we headed back home and down the street from us is a Salvation Army where we saw these.
My husband fell in love with these and both of us couldn't figure out why they were still there. They must have had many more but we did get these.
But then we decided on two more.
And since there were only three left, we decided to take them as well. 75 cents per cup cake with mini marshmallow flowers - held in place with some white icing. Someone took a lot of time making these. We shared these with the family.
These little muffins were my favourite. As you can see, I had to try them out as soon as they arrived in my kitchen. I should find a recipe so I can make more.
Home made pumpkin pie.
And lastly, there were two of these but one got eaten fairly quickly (not by me). It's a chocolate brownie and my husband said it was a real chocolate brownie. So, whoever made these knows something about baking brownies. We also had lunch there and I managed to picked up a couple of Christmas gifts. It was a successful shopping excursion.
