Hi all i'm back with the little bits
i said i would show you.
This is the first one, i found a free
pattern on the internet for these
crochet hearts and thought they
would make fab tree decorations.
This was my first go.
I used DK wool and 5.5mm crochet hook
which made it loose and you could see all the stuffing.
So i had another go using DK doubled up and
that was so much better, a lot tighter and
They are so easy to make and quick too.
I added pale blue pearl beads and some
bells so it jingles just like Santa's sleigh.
They are now hanging on my tree
and look so cute.
I have also made my first Tea cosy
This is for my Mother in law for
Christmas. I can show it to you all
as she doesn't own a computer so won,t see.
The cosy is knitted, i followed a pattern
out of one of my books.
The poppy and leaves are crocheted.
I chose these colours as she has a Rayburn
cooker in the same blue and the tiles that
surround it have red poppies on them.
You'll have to excuse the photos
it was such a dull day here and i really
struggled to get a descent photo
and had to brighten them up a bit on
the computer. They're not to bad.
I really enjoyed making this that I'm half way
through making a Christmas one for myself.
i will share it with you when i have finished.
Thanks for looking
