A little christmas cheer


Hello friends

First things first, a big thank you for the lovely comments on my last post. Sometimes I forget that there are *real* people out there reading, and it continually surprises me what a nice community there is in the world of crafters / dog lovers. πŸ˜€

Well I couldn’t help myself, I really did need a small diversion from the yarn-bomb-in-progress, and what nicer way than a little Christmas cheer. I’ve been rather jealous of two of my favourite bloggers / creators, who have both been busy making some gorgeous Christmas decorations here and here. I had every plan to be a good person and not evenΒ touch anything Chrismassy until my orange tree was complete, but all good plans are made to be broken, aren’t they? Please say yes! πŸ˜€

Really though, I didn’t feel like I had much choice with this little decoration. I thought of it whilst in the middle of my fifth orange square of the day, and next thing you know… we had begun.

Christmas_4smlFor the holly I used Lucy’s Holly Pattern. As usual with Lucy, this design is simple, easy to follow, and gives just the right result. The rest of the pattern, well it was just kind of made up as I went along.

My head is filled now, with other decorative Christmas ideas ~ maybe the yarn-bomb-fairies will come over night and put me out of my misery!

Xmas Moo_7smlXmas Moo9smlMoo is very pleased to be back in front of the camera, can you tell? She just got back from a lovely long Sunday morning walk to a new off-lead dog park. Hopefully that means she’ll be happy to snooze quietly for the rest of the day so I can crochet in peace.

Love Terri and Moo xxx

  1. Your ornament is adorable and I love the look of your yarn!! When I got to the last bear for my clients ten bears she ordered I was so sick of doing them and just wanted to be done! What’s funny and silly of me is that I whipped up another one for a gift! Hope you and Moo have a relaxing day! Hugz Lisa and Bear

  2. Yes, indeed – plans, as with rules, are made to be broken! And look at the results in this case – just gorgeous! Very festive! So wonderful to see sweet Moo chilling out. I hope the yarn bomb fairies pay you a visit tonight, too. Dani x

  3. The little bauble is gorgeous with the holly leaves. Smart move tiring Moo out so that you don’t have to crochet with his head in your lap. WIsh I could do the same with the cats…!

  4. I love your ornament!! And your photography. Thank you for mentioning my little blog.. I am so over the moon. Let’s all get Christmassy together! I am SO excited.
