Yes, Christmas is certainly coming and seeing Christmas ads on TV or seeing deocrations up doesn't seem too riduculously early now. We don't put up our decorations until the week before the big day so that has given me time to make some decorations.....
I found the pattern for this little Father Christmas on the Lion Brand site. It was super quick to make and I think it is very cute!
I also found this on the same site....
This took a little longer to make but it was a very easy pattern. A great stash buster for some camel coloured yarn I was never going to use!
Little S joined in too......
This was courtesy of Lego! He is a whizz with Lego and comes up with all sorts of wonderful things.
I am also making some of Lucy's absolutely fabulous tree decorations. You can visit the Attic24 site by clicking HERE. Go on over and drool over what she has created!
Like a lot of other people, my garden is still full of snow and it isn't budging despite glorious sunshine today.
And then, while I was out I saw this and realised that Mother Nature makes the best decorations of all....
Stay cosy! xxx
we've still got loads of snow & have been stuck at home for another lovely day snuggling up, i just love the little santa, so sweet, will have to check that pattern out, trouble is my 'want to make list' is way too long!ReplyDelete
I know what you mean Kelly - think I will need to start crafting for next Christmas in January! Andrea xReplyDelete
Santa and reindeer are adorable. And I smile at the Lego creation. My boys are teenagers now, but they LOVED their Legos. We still have our huge bin-full that we can't quite seem to let go of. Enjoy your holiday crafting. xx JosieReplyDelete
That little Rudolph is so cute! And those red berries cum icycles is beautiful. But most I want to reach into my computer and drag out that gorgeous zigzagging blanket you crocheted! It exudes warmth and fireside comfyness, and white winter spells might feel more welcome. How long did it take you to crochet it?ReplyDelete
Thanks for popping in at mine!
That santa is so-oo cute! I have also been drooling over Lucy's decorations and just wish I had more time, never mind :)ReplyDelete
Hi Marjojo - It is hard to say how long the blanket took..not long really in the scheme of things. Maybe a month of evening crochet, and that includes the edging. I didn't follow a pattern but I found one online that is the same ripple. It is by Susan B and it can be found here...http://www.handcraftingwithlove.net/yarn/pat-ripple.htmlReplyDelete
I hope to see some photos of your zig-zag blanket in due course! Andrea xx
Cute, cute creations and wonderful photos!ReplyDelete
Expecting a santa in the post sisReplyDelete
The reindeer is really sweet! I also like Santa and now, when I saw yours I am really excited to make one myself
Your blog is beautiful, I love the pictures on the side
Best wishes/Ann from Sweden

Oh it's racing up on us now! Love the Father Christmases and all that snow - we've hardly had any here - which is both good and a little sad as far as I'm concerned! Your photos of the big freeze are beautifulReplyDelete
