Ready for Christmas?

I am cutting down on the crochet for the next few days, I really must polish my much neglected house and buy some Christmas presents.

But you didn't think I could stop crochet altogether did you?

 Book cover based on Olaf is my favourite. It took me two goes to get the happy feeling.














 Another book cover that started off being a garden and finished by being a clearing in the woods with a carrot???

This is the smallest owl I have ever crocheted.












I love these buttons and really wish I had bought some more!







 Quick and easy decorations made by crocheting tinsel yarn around curtain rings and then sewing on some snowflake buttons. The nice thing is that there is a ready made loop to tie the ribbon in.













And then there are the hand made gifts and the commissions still to do before Christmas. I have a few but Vicky is hardly sleeping in order to complete everything she has been asked to do.

This is a  gift for a new baby I am a bit worried that it might be too bright, but I love the effect



We have had some really successful fairs this year and sold practically everything we made and as usual have vowed to start to make next years stock as soon as possible in the new year but I bet Vicky will be madly making  penguins and robins and I will be mass producing Christmas puddings in their various forms as fast as possible and at the last minute. The trouble is there is so much more crochet that I want to try and the re- stocking is last on the list.
