I did manage to get a few things finished up for the holiday season. We also got pictures of the dogs in thier Santa Hats – before they ate them, how amazing is that. Kaya’s says “Princess” , Baxter’s says “Christmas is Pawsome” and Yankee’s says “The cat did it – with broken bulbs stitched all over. Cute. My sister bought them so they could be festive too.
Ice Princess Necklace – Finished November 25, 2009
I really must confess, I am liking these posts that end with “Finished”, I’m liking it a lot 🙂 The Ice Princess Necklace is complete. It didn’t take long either! Once again, I am sorry about the crappy picture. The necklace wouldn’t even fit around the lamp shade – and it’s too small for me or my DD to model…it’s for my sister for Christmas – and it fits her. I know, because she tried it on for the button placement for the closure. Now, I have to make one for DD – but she wants a skull or something like that, not a snowflake.
I’m really amazed, and grateful beyond words to all the people who share their designing talents so freely with us. To be able to make such nice things for my family and friends as gifts for what ever occasion it may be for – or for no occasion at all is a gift given to me by strangers who have no idea what it means to me. To know, I can give something that someone will be able to love and would actually want to use is a such a beautiful thing, I can’t properly express it.
To those of you who I am speaking to and of – I can only say Thank You.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be able to give so freely and happily to those I love, and even to those I may never meet (through charities) items that will bring a smile, some joy, or some comfort and warmth this holiday season and beyond. I truly hope you shall receive the same abundance in blessings as you have shared.
Vine on a Fence – finished November 24, 2009
I completed the Vine on a Fence Scarf from Nathalie over at Gnats On the Windshield. For something so pretty, it was so easy to make. Plus, I used up more of my stash. The pictures I have really do not do it justice at all.
~Hat for Shane~ November 22, 2009
This is my nephew, modeling yet another of my holiday gifts. This hat is for my oldest son. He had one similar some years ago, without the band at the bottom, and it had been worked up in a double stitch – so I doubt it was quite as warm as this one is. It was also his very favorite hat. This is his first holiday season home in three years, and I want it to be memorable. I’m thinking that this will be very special to him because not only is it very similar to the one he had when he was younger – it’s actually made with the remainder of the yarn I made the first one with. Hmmm, I guess there was enough of it to make another hat after all.
Either way, it’s one less ball of yarn in the stash – two actually, I had just enough of that black left for the band at the bottom. Plus it’s another gift to wrap and hold under the tree. I’m one happy Momma right now.
