Christmas fun!

I hope you had as enjoyable a holiday as we did.  Mostly it was a quiet weekend. Sunny for a change and not too cold. On Christmas Eve we went to see the The Muppets (I really enjoyed it) and I worked like mad to finish up this gift:
I'd already finished this one:
On Christmas Day I made this one last gift and then we wrapped presents.
The piggy is needlefelted. This year had theme presents, not planned. Back scratchers were a big one--most people got one, one person was given two. The piggy recipient received a huge piggy bank. Books are still a big present in my family, too.
My sister always gets stuck hostessing and does it brilliantly. We dined and chocolated and had a great time.  A few didn't make it and were missed.

Your needlefelted piggy is so cute! Are those beaded necklaces? They look very impressive.

I got the inspiration and materials and Bead&Button magazine for making the necklaces from Imagine Beads in Valparaiso.
