I can officially look forward to Christmas. Yippeeeeeeeee!
I was always told by my parents that I wasn’t allowed to think about Christmas until the day after bonfire night. So weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeJ It’s nearly here!
How perfect and fitting that I should want to share the Molly Makes Christmas Book with you. I got it from amazon for a bargain price of £6.99 delivered and it was a great treat. There are so may ideas for lots of different crafts.
Nordic Felt Housing to hang on the tree.
Crochet Rudolf ...... oh I can't wait!!!!
Some smoochy mistletoe .... and remember, what happens under the mistletoe, stays under the mistletoe!
Crochet mince pies, sherry and carrots to leave out for Santa on Christmas Eve!
A beautiful embroidery Christmas scene ...... and there are lots lots more!
Apart from the delightful projects the book is also great to sit and look through to get in the festive mood. The background vintage designs are absolutely gorgeous. Take a peek at these!
Finally, here is my Tuesday tallies ……
Apart from making a few bits in preparation for the snowflake swap (only 6 days left to sign up … if you want to follow this link and comment). I have been busy making granny squares for a scarf. I have used a chunky lovely bluey, purple, greeny yarn.
And also making lots of Christmas cards. This year I have decided to KISS (keep - it - simple-sweetie). With a simple cute red stamp design on a white background.
Fa La La La La!
And, phew, I have finished making 96 little advent bags .... it was a hard slog at the end, now I have to add the ties ... I bet you don't envy me there!
I have also been taking little snaps with my mobile of decorations in shops I want to try and remember and use for inspiration.
Bright felt and pompom Christmas tree cushion...
Don’t you just love these the little mitts!
Gingerbread men were everywhere in the garden centre.
And I just love love love these cute hearts, not just for Christmas!
I have opened a Pintrest account and have been having oh so much fun pinning lovely photos on my boards. Do pop along and have a look!
So, a question; how do you make you crochet stiffer …. do you use starch spray? I have read a bit sugar water, do you use that? Can you make your own? If not where do you get it from etc …… blogging community ….. SOS.
