After making lots of festive bunting, baubles and hearts, I found myself crocheting small dainty hearts. I then set to work to make the nice warming red cushion. Just circles and circles of htr stiches (half trebles) gradually increasing with each row.
It got bigger and bigger and my imagination started to get stronger and stronger.
It would be pure and simple, red and white, red for the cushion as a warming backdrop and white hearts embellishing this with cute little red and white buttons to embellish the hearts.
And then bobble stitches around the finished side.
Then finishing the simple hearts with the white hearts being a little bigger than the red.
Then I had a little play around on how these would sit on the cushion. It looked like a massive jam tart!
I am so pleased with the result and it can now sit in my comfy corner of the living room.
Once this was done, it was time to remind the other members of the family to start on the outside of the house (well it wasn't raining!). So off they went into the garage and out came my little pom pom lights for my weeping pear and the string of lights for the front. It's starting to take shape...
I just need to get a Christmas tree for by the front door and finish the wreath I am making. My fingers are so sore!!
We didn't go out much last week apart from to work and I had one of my "beautiful" migraines on Friday, but I decided to take my mum and the kids to Springfields in Spalding to have a look at their winter wonderland. They have only decorated half of the area this year, but the tree looked lovely...
The 'witches' tree looked different...
and the crowns looked very sweet as you entered the shopping outlet.
Have a lovely weekend and week...we are nearly at the big day!
