Holly Wreath Christmas Crochet Earrings


Well, I have just finished sewing the holly berries on to my Christmas wreath earrings.

I want to attempt a step by step for these, but I think it is getting too close to glass of wine time for that much concentration!

I will have a go at it tomorrow, I am really looking forward to doing this.
I have written up instructions (and published books) for many painting projects, but NEVER a crochet project - my mum will be so proud....



By the way, the santa in the background is so cute - you just touch him and he wobbles - you know, like those wobbly headed dogs you used to see in the back windows of cars.

Have a good night, and Ill hopefully see you with a set of instructions tomorrow.

Cheers
Fi

  2. Hi Fi. The earrings and Santa slippers are very cute. I think the Santa slippers would get very dirty in my house, with two dogs. ugh...what was I thinking?

    Your blog is very nice. I enjoy it.

    To answer your question on my blog, I don't have Mrs. Beatons cookbook. Do I need to look for it? I have several cookbooks, but not very many older ones. I don't go out purposely looking for them, but when I come across one at my garage sale ventures, I usually buy it. I love reading them.

  3. You have become a whirlwind with crochet. Isn't it fun, so many things to make, so little time. I have been busy crocheting and knitting up about 23 winter scarves (I lost count). Five of them were Christmas orders to be given as gifts. Your earrings are so cute. I imagine a person could use the plastic cafe curtain rings to crochet over. I have been busy just admiring so many wonderful blogs. I have added you to my list. Maybe I will attempt to do one myself after this holiday season has calmed down. Thank you for sharing. Susanne :)

  5. Your welcome Crystal.

    Bee Lady, I understand perfectly about the dogs - I have one biggish one, and what is more - I found her on top of my bed, on the crocheted blanket, with BOTH of the santa slippers!

    Susanne, go on - start a blog! It's great fun. You know, it's as much fun as the crochet.
    Because I am on my own most of the time, I am finding the blogging to be a great social outlet, I am meeting so many lovely and likeminded people.
    Great work on the scarves, by the way.

    Elsa - thankyou.

    Cheers
    Fi

  6. Hello Fi! These are gorgeous! I would love to feature them at Tangled Happy next week if you get the pattern up in time. I have never seen anything quite like them. Let me know.

  8. OH NO! Sounds like your dog wants to learn to crochet! Did she ruin your Santa slippers? And why do we love our pets? I will be posting someday soon again about our new dog. I tell ya, he was a handful but he is settling down.
