I am in the middle of Christmas rush. I wanted to complete everything until Thuesday, but it was hopeless, since I am working every day. I see on the blogger community that these weeks are extremely busy for others too. My RSS reader is not that crowded like normally.
Our Holiday won't be a handmade Christmas, there will be just one crocheted gift, the other ones will get bought presents. I tried to choose something for everyone, what they would like to have, but they wouldn't spend money on that thing. E.g. my grandpa will get the book My Family by Mary Beth Sammons, which is not actually a book, just a collection of questions, he need to answer. He had a very exciting life and I want to know everything what happened to him! This book is a great gift for all of us :)
But I must show my crafty side, so the gifts will be personalized with fancy wrapping. I made a bunch of crocheted snowflakes and other little things to decorate the packages:
Besides the crochet ornaments I am having two other WIPs: a hat for my husband and a crochet purse. I would like to complete the beanie this week. It won't be a suprise, because I can't do my craft projects hidden from him. The ribbing is done, now making the crown. I am not following any pattern, so fingers crossed, it is cold outside, it must fit!
I started to crochet coin purses, here is a sneak peek of my 'collection'. Two of them is finished, the third one still need the lining.
