01-09-12 Frosty With Scarf


01-08-12 Star Ornament

Another Attic 24 pattern!


01-07-12 Round Ornament

One of my favorite places to craft-wander is at Attic 24. She knows how to brighten up the rainiest of season or not!

 Today's and tomorrow's, along what I am sure more than a few of my Christmas crafts to come will come from patterns that she provided. If you have never visited, drop by and visit her. A warning tho, be prepared to get lost in the color and beauty of the things she creates!!

01-05-12 Another Small Ornament

Looks like this will be the trend this week.

Before-Packaged All
This is from another package of ornaments that I purchased during the off season.

Before-Package Single
I chose to do the easiest first....the star ornament.

It took about an hour to complete.  I am learning, all be it by error, that I need to improve upon my running stitches and my outline cutting.

01-04-12 - Little Ornament

Due to having the "icks," because it just can't be the flu (because of the flu shot I received), the past...and future few Christmas crafts will be of the small and fast type.
01-04-11 Kit Pieces

I bought this little ornament on sale few years ago and am glad I go the chance to finally put it together! It only took about fifteen minutes!

January 1, 2012 - Christmas Wreath

For Christmas this year my fantastic in-laws gave me the number one book on my Christmas list:

Noah Scalin

A fantastic book, Scalin challenges you to "make something every day and change your life". I am going challenge myself to make one
Christmas item each day for the next year. I can't guarantee that it will be an elaborate item....but I am going to do my best!

Today I went with the suggestion from the book and make something small and started with a small Christmas Wreath:

Christmas Wreath

Using a bangle bracelet as a form...and 2 rows of single crochet, 1 row of double crochet, and a finishing frill of single crochet/chain 3 about 2 hours later I had the finished product:

Wreath Completed

Happy New Year!
