Crafty Christmas Inspirations!
Well, today marks the 11-week mark in the countdown to Christmas! If you are planning to do any holiday crafting, it is high time to get started :-). Now, for several years, I have made my Christmas Cards... but, so far this year I haven't quite yet decided yet what the design will be for 2010 (and I have a cousin requesting I make hers as well!). Here are some ideas that I may update (stay-tuned!).
Hmmmm... I seem to use a lot of blues (my favourite colour!); maybe I should try a different colour this year! Do you make cards? I would love to see your ideas - leave me a link in the comments!
As well this year, I am hoping to make some Christmas gifts. I like the personal touch and hope others appreciate it too. My mother-in-law admired a wrap I crocheted (like the one below, but in all white), so I am planning to do one for her in a different colour.
And her sister liked the scarf I made for MIL last year, so I am planning to do her a similar one this year:
I am REALLY excited to have found a pattern for fingerless gloves that I think a certain hard-to-shop for friend will just love:
The last pattern is from the current issue of Crochet Today, while the others are from older issues (this fall and last Christmas). I LOVE their patterns, if you didn't realize that already ;-). You can browse/purchase their patterns at: Crochet Today
