As it is less than a week to go to the big day, the question we ask is am I ready for Christmas? Every one I meet on the street asks me this. Are you one of these people who has everything done months in advance. When you see a pattern you think that would do for so and so or, do you like me (like most men) leave it to the last minute? Have you ever seen a certain type of yarn and thought I can make one of my friends something with that (giving you a very good reason to buy more yarn). Even though I know to stick to things to do with crocheting, I still asked for pointers this year, so there is more chance of me getting it right!!
The tree is up, the lights are on, the snow flakes are on the tree (the ones my wife crocheted).
Did you do any decorations for the tree or the house? How did they come out? Great I bet. I think the home-made ones are so much better , not because of what they are made of but what they are made with. When you make something it is not always perfect (some times they are). It is what you put into them that makes them special. You put part of yourself into them. Your time, your care, your love and some times blood sweat and tears(the frogging and stitching). I am sure that all the home-made gifts will be appreciated. A machine or a factory worker does them because it is their job, he or she only puts into them the minimum requirements (what they can get away with).
Some of the things that my wife has made have come out even better than she could have imagined (they all look great). It is not the time or place to show you as it will not be a surprise to some of the people who are reading this. I will show the photos at a later date after the big day. There will be more patterns to come to. I know you like it when we give away patterns for free.
I would just like to say thank you, thank you, thank you for reading this blog. Thank you for all your nice comments and kind words. I hope you all have a good Christmas this year and every year. Happy crocheting.
