Yesterday wasn’t a day full of craftiness sadly :(, but I did manage to make another
one of my padded baubles with an added edge. What do you think?
I also attempted to crochet a little mouse for our two cats, Dottie and Lillie, to play with but it looked nothing like a mouse! However, the cats enjoy batting it about so that makes me happy. 🙂
I’m awaiting new supplies of some wool as my crochet to-do list gets bigger and bigger by the hour. Also have some cross stitch decorations I want to start – but they shouldn’t take too long to do.
In the next few days I will upload another tutorial – how to make a craft bag for all your wool, threads, fabric or whatever you fancy keeping organised! I’m in desperate need of one, what with my growing stock of wool now!
Which reminds me, I have found a really good app for the iPhone which stocks loads of free crochet/knitting patterns for pretty much everything. Check the ‘Out There’ section for more details.
Another tree decoration to add to the collection……
This one is made of two parts. I crocheted the front design and then did exactly the same for the back. Crocheting the two circles together, adding some stuffing inside before crocheting closed.
Was going to put a button in the centre of each side but didn’t have a button big enough for my darning needle to go through! Ooops! 🙂 Guess I could have sewn them in. Never mind!
At some point in the next few days I will post the patterns for my crochet bits n bobs so you can all have a go! I might even try and do a video tutorial :s will have to get other half to help I reckon, he’s a whizz kid on the camera!

So I have been crocheting into the small hours the last few nights, as I have been practising making some tree decorations. Really wish I had managed to make all my decorations this year but was just not organised enough! Maybe next year! 🙂

First of all I made these……
and then I started on these……. I love these and will be making more! Lovely little jackets for your baubles 😀
What do you think?….. Will you be making some? If so, let me know how you get on… would love to know!
I’m in the process of making some slightly different tree ornaments so watch this space! 🙂 Now got to get back to writing Christmas cards and doing our Save The Date cards (wedding….. Yay!) Happy Crocheting, Miss C xx
