A Few More Critters and Our Tree

Over the past few months, I have been
busy cross stitching away.  I am
so close to catching up to the Animal Advent Stitch A-long  
One cutie at a time..

a little thief and a pretty little pig,

the dapper Duncan the Dog,

Hamilton the Horse - showing off his super cool ugly sweater,

Pierre the Penguin, 

and a sweet little rabbit.
All finished up and hanging out on our Christmas tree.

The kids keep bidding on which ornaments they want for their own.
I know that I will have to make another set of these.
What about you?
Have you made anything new for your tree this year?
I also finally had a chance on writing a
tutorial on how to make these.
You can find it on the Therm-O-Web
blog today.

Blizzard Warning Finished

 I have been busy as a bee setting up Christmas
and getting all prepared for the day.
I had these pretty blocks finished last month
that was created  by Every Trick on the Hook
 You can find the block pattern for the blocks over here.

  I couldn't decide on what exactly I wanted to do with it. 
 Continue on and make an afghan
or stop and make a pillow.

I decided to make a pillow for the couch. 
This is where sewing and crocheting came in handy.
I made two rectangles and sewed them to the wrong side
of the crocheted cover.

I  then found the most adorable crocheted pom pom trim pattern
over at  Once Upon a Pink Moon
and added them around the edge of the pillow.

I absolutely love the finished product.
So perfect for the kids to rest upon
during Christmas break

 And a perfect addition to our Christmas decorations.

Blizzard Warning

Do you ever make craft promises to yourself?
No, nothing like I won't buy yarn or fabric for a
month and then have a relapse.
I mean from an artistic point.
Several years back, after my grandmother passed
away, she left many crocheted granny squares in a bag.
After many hours of putting them together,
I made a promise to myself that well....
I would never make anything with any granny squares.
I didn't like the whole idea of having
 to crochet or sew them together. 
It is a good thing that we are all able to grow and
change our minds.
The change of mind came from a pattern.

It is called Blizzard Warning. 
It is created by Every Trick on the Hook.
You can find the pattern for free
right now on Ravelry.
You can either make a hexagon
or as a granny square.
  I chose the later.
Although, a hexagon could be in the near future.
I made a single crocheted seam in the center
connecting the squares. 

I have big plans for
this lovely, so
you'll have to check in later.
I could be snowed in.

Handmade Holiday Hop

Is it really getting that time of the year? 
 Christmas trees, Angels and Carols, ohh my!!
 I am over
at the Therm-O-Web blog giving
a tutorial on how to make these fabric Christmas ornaments.
You could also use them as a fancy gift tag.
They don't take a lot of time and
they are no sew
and so fun to play with.

This one is my favorite. 
I am in love with aqua.
I hope that you hop on over and check it out.
There is a prize package worth over $600
and some really great Holiday ideas.
