Three Christmas Puddings

Image

My lovely neighbour asked if I would make her some Christmas Pudding decorations, like this one.

3Puddings_5smlThe prototype was quite small, so I made these using aran weight. The pink yarn is Zara Plus Merino. The holly leaves are Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. I forget how nice lovely yarn is to use.

3Puddings_8smlI would like to be able to come here and say this is it ~ no more Christmas Crochet until next year. But that is possibly a little premature. 😀

3Puddings_1smlI hope your Christmas preparations are going splendidly, and that you’re well and truly in the Christmas spirit(s)!

Love Terri and Moo

I have no idea how it happened ~ Part 2

Actually, this time I do know how it happened!

I was (innocently) sitting down to a really quick weekday-morning breakfast and thought I’d have a little peak at this lovely blog. Big mistake! First, there was this post about Lucy’s gorgeous Festive Wreath, which of course then lead to these exquisite Teeny Tiny Stars.

Obviously, they weren’t going to wait till after work. I mean, they just had to be made now! I’m sure you understand.

I only made three, in a lovely peacock colour, or is it emerald, or even teal? Actually, I made six, starched them and sewed them together… just to make them a little more robust. You can just see them in these photos, they’re rather hiding in our tree.

I’m not sure now though, maybe I like Lucy’s ones better.

Moo is pretty happy with our tree this year. Did I tell you it’s her birthday on Saturday? She will be turning three. I’m thinking maybe a birthday-girl-pom pom?
