Tuesday's Tallies.......Christmas Crochet.

Hello there, my lovely friends. Yay, the big man will be visiting soon, I hope you are all well at this busy time of year and have most of your shopping done.

Since Carole decided to stop Tueday's Tallies due to other commitments, Fiona from Knit Knat Knot UK has now taken over, which I'm so happy about as it makes me pick up my larger projects so I hope you will take a look at her fab blog and hopefully join us all after Christmas with a new project that you may have been wanted to start for a while. All you do with this CAL  is one square or one row a day, there is no time restriction, it's all very relaxed but it's surprising how quick you will get something finished.

I still haven't started back on my Bobble blanket but once Christmas is out the way I'll be back to it, I have got some fun  Christmas crochet projects to show you though, that I've made this week.

The first one is this fun Christmas Toadstool, I love it and it's so quick to make, you can find the pattern, here.

The next project are these bottle toppers and bow ties, I thought it would make these personalised bottles of wine more festive. There isn't a pattern for this, I made it up as I went along but if anybody is interested, I'll have a go at writing it down.

Last but not least, I've made this sweet little baby hat with some leftover merino yarn that I had, it's going to my friend's baby niece.The pattern is by Connie Stults and can be found, here.

Thanks for stopping by, I'm so sorry I haven't been visiting your blogs lately, I just haven't been about much but I will stop by over the weekend.
