Felt Gift Tag Brooches!

I just couldn't resist doing something crafty to give away this year. I have been pretty slack in gift making. But I am busy crocheting, so I should be excused!

These gift bows made in felt, are from ow About Orange's tutorial, who inspired Kathleen from Twig & Thistle. who inspired me!

One in pink for a friend.

Lime green for my sister.

Purple one for me!!!
Just need to sew on the brooch backs now!
Are you doing anything last minute as well?

Merry Xmas

We may never get a white Xmas, but it was nice to get some decent snow the other day!
Everything looked beautiful for a few days, but the ice was somewhat deadly!

I wish everyone a wonderful and happy holiday, and a fantastic New Year. I'll probably see you in 2010!!

Yummy Yarn

So this is what I've been buying with my hard earned cash (and a few sales on ebay). Crochet has me hooked!!!
This is all Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, chosen primarily, because I already had quite a few balls of it, but it is lovely and soft, and warm!
Fabulous colours!
The reason I need so much yarn?

By the way, it's not enough!
I am crocheting a georgeous ripple blanket.

The pattern is supplied by Attic 24. If you haven't looked at Lucy's site, you must. She is fantastic! I'm hoping one day, I can buy her a coffee or tea and a slice of cake to say thank you!
