It’s a busy time of year 🎄

I haven’t been around for a bit as I was in hospital for a week receiving treatment for my lupus, which is in rather a vicious mood.  The benefit of being stuck in a hospital bed was it gave me a lot of time to plan and crochet a bit.

I’m working on Christmas decorations, and just love the Christmas angel that I have designed freehand.  She’s still a work in progress and needs wings, arms and a halo.  I’m also going to crochet Christmas baubles and make little beaded trees.  It’s all terribly Christmasy.  I’ve crocheted the angel in the amigurumi style. which gives a nice tight fabric for holding stuffing without any peeking through.  Amigurumi is so much fun!  It’s lovely to see the characters appear beneath your fingers.

There is also some very exciting news.  I will be opening an online shop, that will showcase my work and that of other local crochet artists, as well as other handmade crafts.  I can’t wait to tell you more!

And that’s it for today.  Please share your makes and plans for a crochet Christmas.  🎄
