Christmas Granny Baubles

  Stash Buster 17  This week I made more Christmas decorations and crocheted a couple of Christmas Baubles. You can't be early enough; before you know it Christmas is there. I already have a lot of blue and white decorations for the tree from last year  and want to complement this with handmade decorations  instead of buying new stuff again  For this pattern you don't need a lot of yarn, so I used left overs of other projects. Inside the balls are old Christmas baubles that I didn't use anymore. Plastic baubles are best to use, because after crocheting two halves you cover the baubles with them and close them by threading. Glass baubles are more breakable, so plastic is saver.

 One of my favorite Etsy stores is Lalylala. I bought lots of patterns there and when a book came out, I bought that, too, of course. What I especially like are the Season series.  For a couple of years now I had the intention to make the Christmas creatures, but for some reason it never happened. Busy making other things or no time at all. But this year I purchased both Christmas pattern sets, hooked and hooked and hooked, and they are finished! And although it's a bit early, I show them anyway, no that there's still lots of time to make them yourself, in case you like them, too!     Patterns:  X-mas by Lalylala (candle, tree, angel) X-mas Vol 2 by Lalylala (pointsettia, christmas elf, bauble) Yarn: various colors by Katia Capri and Scheepjes Catona ~*~ My Sea Shell Blanket was featured by Creative Jewish Mom !

Sea Shell Blanket

  More than a year ago I started crocheting this blanket and finally it's finished. Very happy, considering I used just one third of the time for crocheting and the rest of the time for untangling yarn.  The blanket is made of three different skeins of Scheepjes Whirl. I made lots of different projects inbetween to keep my spirit high, but not that it's finished I really love the result. And..., bought new Whirls for another project.    Pattern: Sea Shell Blanket by Lisa Kuijs on Ravelry (free pattern) Yarn: Scheepjes Whirl Liquorice Yum Yum, Indigo Plane and Blueberry Bam Bam ~*~ My Crocheted Herringbone Pumpkin Pillow was featured by The Answer is Chocolate !

Cozy Herringbone Pumpkin Pillow

A while ago, a the beginning of Fall, I saw some really, really great pillows in the form of a pumpkin, on the internet. The shop that sold them didn't deliver to the country I live in, though, so I went searching for other shops selling similar pillows. In the end I didn't find  pumpkin pillows exactly to my liking, but what I did find was a beautiful crochet pattern for pumpkin pillows on Etsy. So that's what I bought.  I crocheted three balls of yarn together for a thick thread.  Pattern: Cozy Herrington Pumpkin Pillow by My Dear Knot Yarn: Royal by Zeeman ~*~ My Waist Coat Stitch Plant Pot is featured by Creative Jewish Mom  and Ginx Craft !
