Merry Christmas!

I have always loved this time of year. I love to see the decorations up in stores and homes. I love to see the lights shining at night. I love to listen to Christmas music and watch Christmas movies. I love going to special Christmas services where you can join with others in singing about the wonder of Christ’s birth.

As a child growing up I loved these things, too and I often hand made most of the gifts I gave to family and friends. Many of those gifts were crocheted, too. I would spend a lot of time brainstorming about what kind of gifts each person would like and how I would make it for them.

My mother likes the delicate lace from the Victorian era so I took to making many Christmas ornaments for her using thread crochet and the tiny steel hooks (that I inherited from my grandmother). I liked how the projects worked up quicker than a sweater or afghan and once finished with ribbon, glitter or bead embellishments, they turned out quite stunning.

This year I took out some of the lace crochet Christmas pattern booklets that I have and crocheted them with medium weight yarn and an H hook. I love the result and have plans to applique them on to Christmas gift bags.
