Once the gifts were out of the way, I could work on some projects for myself.
A garland of funky snowmen, from the 2008/2009 issue of Quilting Arts Gifts:
Tiny gingerbread houses, pattern by Gingermelon:
The start of an embroidered Christmas tree, designed by Gingerbread Snowflakes:
"A Partridge in a Pear Tree" by Heritage Samplers (I think? The pattern logo/trademark/label is confusing, and googling "heritage samplers" doesn't result in anything helpful):
A needlepoint trio of the Magi:
big Christmas projects, so I've decided the only way I will get them done is if I stitch them in the off-season.
