Danish Christmas Pixie In February


Around Christmastime you may have been
seeing these cute pixies everywhere . . .
I know that I did.

Well, I started Googling them,
until I found a pattern. 

I put the pattern up in a safe place
and forgot where that was . . .
come on confess,
we have all done that, right?

After finding it, 
I had to give this little guy a try. 


Now, if I put him up in a safe place,
will I remember where that is come
Christmastime next year :)

 We'll see, LOL. 

I just needed a little break from quilting
and this was a fun project.


Have A Great Weekend
&
Keep Smiling! 

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

  1. Adorable. I must confess to putting things away in a safe place and then not remembering where that safe place was.

  2. He's cute as can be. I love those ears. Yes I have put patterns in a safe place and forgotten where or more accurately that I forgot about them completely.

    1. It is so easy to do . . . and not because we are getting older and forgetful, because I've gone this sort of thing all my life :)

    1. He was fun to make . . . a little bit hard to get stuffing all the way to the ends of his pointed hat and toes :)

  6. I put things up for safekeeping all the time and then they disappear! Ha ha! I think your little pixie is just darling.

    1. Hi Betsy, me too . . . I've purchased birthday cards too early to mail and put them up only to forget where and have to buy again. That's the problem with putting things up that have deadlines :) I'm happy that you like my little fellow. Happy weekend!

  7. I spent a couple of hours yesterday looking for something. I know I didn't find it but do you think I can even remember what in the world I was looking for?
    Your cute elf makes me think of the "Elf on a Shelf" that seemed to be around at Christmas.

    1. I know, we all need to get a "Special Place Cupboard" and place to put all the things we want a special place for, LOL Then maybe we'll find them:)

  8. Oh Connie I LOVE him! Can you share where you found the pattern? I'm thinking he would be fun to make in spring colors for Easter! And yes, I've put things in a safe place for later and couldn't remember where...but not as bad as my neighbor! She put all of her good jewelry up before a trip and couldn't remember where she put it for a year and a half! She found it two weeks ago!!! Hey we are having perfect weather in Indiana right now! It's in the 60's! Have a good weekend.

    1. The site where I found it has pulled it. When I went there it said, free pattern not available anymore. Watch your mailbox :)

  9. Oh, I love the Maileg pixies. Yours turned out very cute. I'd leave it out year 'round. It's too sweet to put away for all those months. xo

  10. SO SO cute, Connie. And, yes, I think we all have put things up and not remembered that place was. :)

    1. Isn't it frustrating when that happens :)

  11. I had not seen those pixies. The kids do the elfs though for their kids. I am guilty of forgetting about things also. We are having some beautiful weather here so will dread the cold when it ends. Getting closer to spring all the time though. Enjoy your weekend! Nancy

    1. Our days are starting to reach 40 for a few hours each day, so the snow is slowly melting . . . very slowly, LOL.

  12. so glad you were able to find this cute pattern, I can't tell you how often that safe place gets forgotten around here :)
    You may have to leave him out so you don't forget him next Christmas!

  14. Hi Connie, Your pixie is just great. Someone will be lucky to get a pixie gift from you next Christmas! You picked an excellent title for your blog as you are truly "crafty"! :-) Hope you and yours are having a fine weekend! Best regards from your Seattle friend. John

  15. That little pixie is pretty darn cute. Do you have Danish family ties? I can imagine how hard stuffing those skinny arms ans legs had to be. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No Danish ties here . . . British, Irish and Dutch on my side. Reaching the tip of his hat and the tip of his toes where the hardest . . . but I think I'll do it again and make a girl next time :)

  16. He's a doll... hadn't seen any in my Christmas forays out and about.. but really didn't go out to many places this year.. he is just the sweetest thing. I can't imagine getting that stuffing way down into this boots and little hands! Isn't red and white the most cheerful thing ever? He just makes me want to chuckle! And what a cute little face. xoxo Marilyn

  17. Oh my gosh, I love these little pixies. Yours is darling, Connie. You did such a wonderful job making it. Red and white polka dot, a sweet smile, who couldn't resist this little fellow?

    Have a nice Sunday.

  18. That is so cute! That is the first one I've seen. Oh Connie, any time I put something in a special place...so I will know exactly where it is...I can never find it again. Glad I'm not by myself. :)

    1. It's it awful how those special hiding places disappear when we want to retrieve whatever it is we put up there, LOL

    1. Why is it we always forget these safe places . . . the ones that we truly believe we will remember, LOL

  22. Good morning Connie,

    Greetings from our home away from home. We are in California at the moment weathering all the storms that have passed through this past week. That's a really cute little guy you have made there. Hope you won't be like me and put him in a "safe place" that's so safe you can't find him next year. LOL! Blessings to you.

    1. I hope that I don't either . . . but knowing me, there is always that change, LOL :)

  23. Connie, just darling. I don't think I could help you find him for next year as that is a problem that I have too. I am starting to make a list of where I put things if I can remember to look at it from time to time.!.Happy Tuesday..Judy

    1. Hi Judy, One Christmas I started doing my shopping in the late summer. Then to keep anyone from seeing them, I wrapped them early, too, without tags. When I pulled them out of my hiding place, I had forgotten which gift went with which person, LOL. I had to unwrap them all before I could make tags. That's one of the silliest things I've none :) Of course when I wrapped them I knew that I would remember.

  24. Hi Connie,
    Your pixie is adorable. I love the combination of fabrics that you've chosen. Maybe you could pin the pattern to his back? I have a household full of things that I've stashed somewhere "just to get out of the way." Yikes!!!

    Thank you for your visit. Maybe I'll get to play on the weekend and embellish my card a bit! They didn't even give us envelopes to mail them in!!!

    Hugs,
    Kay

    1. When we moved we also had a huge yard sale . . . I was to a point that I just wanted to throw it away or burn it or do anything to get out of doing anymore moving. Now, when I can't find something, I always wonder if it went in the yard sale or if I should keep looking for it . . . it's a mystery, LOL

  25. Oh I hope you don't put him somewhere and forget him, he is way too cute. Hugs, LJ
