Well here it is, only 10 days to Christmas and the Pohutukawa is not doing what it should
so I relented and dressed the tree.
Thought you might like to see some of the decorations I've made over the years, most of them when the kids were little and we lived in a caravan building a motor camp. How I had the time or energy I don't know.
Dragon boats are popular, crochet stars and a God's eye.
Angel wing shells, Miss Elf and a paper clip angel.
Mr Elf and a colourful dragon boat
and more dragon boats. The pattern for these was in an early Handwoven magazine, maybe late 80s.
Anyone who has owned a knitting machine has knitted wee stockings.
Mr Mouse whiskers and all
and a rather scruffy angel who has blessed us well.
Angel wing with beads off daughter in laws wedding dress. We did make the dress into another project after the wedding and these were left over, in case anyone is wondering if I just hacked into the frock.
And a knitted star to finish with. Designed by Karolina Eckerdal "Stjarna". Not the easiest to do but effective.
