Christmas crochet projects
Little doily made as a gift - came from South Maid booklet " Timeless Doilies to Crochet " - this one is called Flower Petals.
A stiffened snowflake for a gift - it is a large one so can be either hung on the tree or used as a coaster - my friend loved both of them...this is called Irish Rose Snowflake and it was free online.
Some more crocheted snowflakes - a spun glass ornament in the centre - I really like these - and I try to collect them whenever I see them.
After the tree went up - a few days before Christmas - every time I saw a bauble that was not covered, I crocheted over it - until nearly all the ones on the tree were crocheted.. there are a few still to do. Last Christmas I bought lots of very cheap discarded ornaments, mostly silver, from an op shop and have been steadily crocheting covers for them all year. I think I paid as little as $1 for 6, if I remember rightly. and as I always have a lot of white crochet thread in my stash it really cost me very little to upgrade my tree ornaments...
