Three more days till christmas....wow. the last month has just flown by with so much crafting activity. As of right now I have finally finished all my projects for the holiday. To tell you the truth, in the end I wasn't sure I would do it. I finally gave it a last push and did it. "Yippie". One does feel good when it is all done. Now we can only hope that the recipiants love the made items. Will give you a report after the holiday.
In my previous post I wrote that I was going to start something new, but as the days went by and there was so much left to do, it was postponed more than a few times. For that reason I have decided not to start anything new till the new year. That's something to look forward to, right? I also figured you all are just as busy at this time of the year and will probably not blogging that much right now.
I do have a couple of things to show you today. One I found on my favorite blogs Attic 24 . If you have not checked out her blog yet, you really should do it now. I have made a few of her projects and loved, yes loved, every one of them. She just has a wonderful way about herself. I love her attitude, her humor and her clever ideas. Once you have checked her out, come back here and let me know what you think. Thanks. Well for christmas she has made these crocheted stars and when I saw them I had to try one for myself. And as it goes, you can't just make one. My stack grew and turned into a few little gifts for a few people. Besides the usual white ones I made some red ones as well. They turned out great too. They are now hanging on my neigbors white christmas tree and look beautiful. So....are you now ready for a looksy? Yes you say? Well ok than, here it goes.
Now the red one:
Well....what do you think? You like them? They are super simple to make and certainly worth a try. I have a feeling I will make some more of them in the coming year and I also think I will try them in some other colors, like blue and I saw a yarn that was white with glitter that I liked. If you try and make them, send me picture and let me see how it turned out.
Here is one other project I worked on....a Hat. Just another simple and quick one. Hope you like it.
Now that I have all the christmas crafting done I decided to actually make something for myself. That is something I don't do very often, as I give most of my things away, donate them or sell them in my shop. It's a shawl. I just love the design of it. I decided on the white color. That way you can wear it with many different things. Here is what I have done so far:
You like it? I think I will get it done within the next few days. I will model it for you all after that.
For a last look I thought I show you a little christmas. I tried to take some pictures at night, but must admit they all came out rather blurry and not something to show off.
This will be my last post for this year. The next week will be filled with the holidays. So I would like to wish all of You a very "Merry Christmas" and a "Happy New Year". Here is hoping the holidays will bring you much Cheer and Love. Enjoy all you can with your family and loved ones.
See you in the New Year. Bye for now my friends........
