Just in time for Christmas

Image

Well, I know it’s now two days after Christmas, but these were finished in time ~ honestly! Four crochet stool covers for the four littlest children to sit on, at Christmas lunch.

I love the colours in the latest two. Kind of Christmassy but not too Christmassy. And I’m pleased to report, they were a resounding success on the day!

This one is from the gorgeous pattern by Petra, which I found on this blog by Crochet Missy. It’s really quite easy to follow and comes together very quickly.

This one is from the lovely Alice at Crochet and Healing with Raymond. I’ve used this Mandala pattern many times for doilies and such, and it will always be a favourite I think. I really love the colours in this one too.

….. and Moo was hoping they’d get her just close enough to childrens’ plates to steal the ham!

Moo and I hope you all had a splendid, relaxing Christmas. Thankyou for being part of my six-months-so-far blog journey.

Love Terri and Moo xxx

Christmas Preparation ~ Part 2

Image

Well, I realised if I’m going to be at all realistic about my “To Craft” list for Christmas, I better speed things up a little.

This stool cover pattern is way quicker …and maybe not as fancy, but pretty nevertheless I reckon.

The pattern is from the lovely Alice at Hook Knit Spin. I’ve used this Mandala pattern so many times, and it’s just so nice to crochet…and so quick that it really has that instant gratification thing going… which is never a bad thing 🙂

These pictures were taken a little late in the day, hence the low light – sorry about that.

It was also getting a little too close to Moo’s dinner time. She wasn’t too impressed with this photo session.

PS Only three more to go!

Christmas Preparation ~ Part 1

Image

Do you realise it’s only 7 weeks till Christmas? Yes, I know, eek!

We’re having Christmas Lunch at our house ~ 14 adults, 5 children and 1 Moo. Yes, I know, eek again!

Since we’ll be dragging out the boring old multi-use covered-in-paint $6 Ikea stools, I thought it’d be nice to give them a little extra Christmas cheer. Then I found this awesome blog by Crochet Missy, linking me to these terrific stool-cover instructions by Petra.

It was so easy to follow, and I’m so pleased with the result.

The yarn is by Spotlight ~ Moda Vera Beetle, 50% cotton / 50% acrylic. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I do not like working with acrylic yarn. Still, the colours are bright, it was part of my stash, and wasn’t expensive ….

Moo was ever-so-slightly impressed.

Only five more to go!
