Christmas crochet

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 
Take care
