My son's girlfriend really liked it, especially the bells, and said she would love one.
(I'm still not sure if she was just being kind)
Anyway, she really loves Christmas, so I decided to make a Christmas crown, in red and green, with bells. I love it- it looks, and sounds really festive.
It was really easy to make, if you missed the instructions for the fairy crown last week, just click on the link at the top of the post for the most basic easy instructions ever.
Perfect for Christmas fairies everywhere
Also perfect for the mothers', sisters', aunts, friends of Christmas fairies everywhere...
On to the Small Things Yarn Along.
This week I am reading a book that is almost the polar opposite of last weeks book by Marieke Hardy.
I love Maeve Binchy, I went through a period years ago of reading all her books back to back, and felt like I lived in some type of cosy adorable world of her making.
When we were around at my parents on the weekend swimming, I found this book my Mum had been reading. I hadn't even realised there was a new book out, probably because my tastes have changed somewhat, and I hadn't been looking. Anyway, I opened it, started reading,( its a book of short stories), and became consumed yet again.
Luckily when I went to the library this week they had a copy, so I am back in cosy town. Most of the stories are about Christmas, so that's perfect for this post with the Christmas crown.
Also on the weekend when I went to our LYS to buy bells, I found these adorable Christmas plates.
They were a set of 4places per box, but when I went to pay, the adorably lovely woman asked if I wanted two for the price of one.
I read a post the other week about making last minute presents for people, and this is where learning crochet again has come in so handy.
I had two birthdays I had forgotten about, my aunt and my neighbour, so I crocheted up a flower chain for each of them- quick and easy and adorable!!
Loving the crochet!!
Have a lovely rest of your week x
