Handmade Christmas Gifts

Are you celebrating Christmas this year with handmade gifts? For Christmas last year, I crocheted scarves for both of my sister-in-laws in their favorite colors and they were a huge hit. I believe that people can really tell all of the thought and care that is woven into each handmade item I create. Even if you aren't able to create your own handmade gifts you can still give them this holiday season. I thoroughly enjoy making gifts for people for any occasion.

Even these snowflake appliques could be sewn onto a sweater or stiffened to make ornaments for decoration around your house or on your Christmas tree.

Crazy Weather

I can't believe it's been nearly I week since I've posted.  My brain needs a little break from work and crochet is the perfect outlet for me. Over the weekend I made a pair of pink cotton baby booties for a coworker. She's going to take them as a gift for a relative on her next trip out to California. Right now I'm working on a thin light purple scarf done by connecting circles together. This is my first time working with mohair and I'm very interested to see how it turns out.

We've had near record high temperatures in the midwest this past week so it's been a little hard for me to get in the scarf making mood. I really appreciate the 75 degree temperatures in November and don't want it to get colder, but my creative energy for the winter season is going nowhere. I think after it rains over the weekend I'll be ready.

Contact me to pick out your favorite colors for a blanket.
