Christmas Ornaments!

I was on quite a Christmas ornament kick last week and made some snowflakes and owls for my tree and my mom’s tree. It had nothing to do with my serious procrastination issues. Nothing. 😀

I used crochet thread to make the snowflakes and scraps of worsted weight yarn to make the owls. There was also some felt, safety eyes, and embroidery floss involved in constructing the owls.

These owls are SO CUTE. I need more! The safety eyes really make a difference. Eva thinks they’re cute, too, and likes to change their position on the tree from time to time. I think I’m going to make a couple each year as a tradition.

I haven’t got much to say about the snowflakes except that I’m horrible at pinning out and starching, apparently. My mom requested them for her tree, so that’s where they’re living now, along with one of the owls. I’ll probably make some for my tree, eventually, but I’ve got some more pressing projects to finish first.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Christmas Tree With Red Ornaments – Complete!

Yesterday morning I finally finished the Christmas Tree I was crocheting for a friend of the family.

I am so glad it’s done. This thing had been in progress since August! I followed the pattern pretty much verbatim with one exception – I made the cone larger. I (poorly) crocheted in some red glass beads as I went for ornaments. I wish I had placed them better, but it was hard to keep track.

Now that this tree is done, I’m free to focus my attention on some thread crochet ornaments and a couple of commissions. How exciting!
