Sunday Sevens #13

Oooops…I am a day late this week! We have been so busy getting things ready for when our parents arrive in just over a week! We still have a lot to do but we are making good progress!
We have also decided to get married while they are over here! 😀 We are very excited and now need to plan everything… for the 27th December!

So, here is my week:

1. Finished the dress that I had cut out last week. I like the style but the collar looks slightly odd when the dress is on.

Starting A Handmade Christmas

Last year, I pinned many handmade Christmas ideas on Pinterest but didn’t quite have the time to make ANY of them.

Well, that has definitely changed this year!  Over the last couple of weeks, I have finished a few handmade christmas projects. I am very eager to share them with you and hope to show many more over the coming weeks. However, I think we will all have a few post-Christmas posts scheduled to show the gifts that we can’t show before Christmas…just incase any surprises are revealed!

The first project started quite a few weeks ago and has taken me a lot of time of on/off crocheting! These little crochet Christmas sets for Santa & Rudolph are from the Molly Makes Handmade Christmas book.
I am still new to crochet but found these instructions easy to follow, and I’m very pleased with how they have turned out! A couple of these sets have gone to the UK for Christmas presents, and we have kept one too!
