Yesterday I crocheted up some Jam-jar jackets. They are not really jam-jars, but glass jars for tea-light candles. When I get time, I will be knitting or crocheting flower arrangements for them, using chenille pipe-cleaners wrapped in yarn for stems.
Have you seen the knitted/crocheted plant patterns available too?
This is a free pattern available at www.lionbrand.com. You will have to register on the site first.
There are lots of tempting patterns like the five pictured above
Here. I think they are reasonably priced and look fun to make
My husband is planning to make us a nativity scene. My contribution will be the figures. I have just finshed Baby Jesus using those scraps I keep reminding you all to use up!
If you can bear one more picture of the Welsh dresser - it now wears its sparkly winter snowflakes.
Finally, while I was making gift tags from old Christmas cards, I came across a lovely picture, which reminded me a little of the paintings of Susan Rios
Last year, I had been sent a tiny Susan Rios print that my friend had attached to a pink ribbon. I thought I would do the same, and sandwiched the ribbon between the picture and some backing card ( for which I used another old Christmas card)
