Show & Tell: Ghosts of Christmasses Past

Hi again,

Show & Tell Thursday's

Ok so I don't have anything new to show...shock horror! Doesn't mean I haven't been making stuff! Though to be fair there's not an awful lot of making going on... I am quite sure that my days are going down a black hole of forgotten nothingness... or I'm loosing my mind... anyhoos... When I presented my wee conundrum to a friend she gave me a great suggestion - let's do a Ghosts of Christmasses Past post!

So gather round, gather round and please share some of your cracker Christmas makes from previous years (or this year!). Gifts, decorations, foodie items... let's pool our resources!

Some of my favourite goodies made were just from last year - baubles for Africa, mushrooms and teeny socks... but i think the apples took the cake.

Not sure why but they just made my day - making them and packaging up with a KitKat as teacher's gifts gave me a kick. I'll take them where I can ;)

So share your clever creations with us please? Link up new makes, old makes, Christmas makes, non-Christmas makes... Go on - sharing is caring!
Have a splendid day

Show & Tell: Tis the Season

Only 6 more weeks...

Show & Tell Thursday's

It's coming! And you all know it!

I'd been tinkering with a pattern for Crochet Christmas trees for a little while. I wanted them to be simple to construct but with lots of options to embellish. After a couple of attempts these were the end result.

In my spare time (hahahaha) I am making lots and lots and lots of these ;)

I really enjoy the process of working out a pattern. Thinking and trying different ways of construction. Counting, recounting, more counting. Trying and trying again. And always learning through each attempt or "wrong" turn.

How about you? Will you re-invent the wheel if you cant find the right one?
Looking forward to hearing from you lovelies and seeing what you've been up to.

The pattern for these little trees is available in my Etsy shop.

Show & Tell: And Hottie Makes Three

Come in, come in!
Nice of you to drop by :)

Show & Tell Thursday's

A dear friend has been in a lot of pain of late... not that you would really know as she's a trooper and just keeps on swimming one way or another! This hottie cover was included in a care/love package collaboration sent down to cheer her up.

This is the 3rd one of this "variety" I've made and it was a joy. Such happy happy bright colours!

And I love finding little different ways of making them a little different from each other. This time the teeny leaves seemed exactly right for the colour scheme.

It's been used and loved and is fulfilling it's purpose - cant ask for more than that!

Do you like customising and tweaking things here or there? What have you been working on?
Looking forward to seeing your creations... perhaps one or two Christmas goodies will be up for show?
Have a happy day!

The patterns for the hottie cover and mushrooms are available from my Etsy shop. Or if you're super keen you can order your own custom version too xx
