Christmas is coming near .. well probably too near for you to actually use these ideas this year, but if you still have the energy, inclination, drive and a little space left on your tree that needs decorating, something handmade would be just great.
Over the past few days, there have been so many lovely people sharing patterns – but they’re all over the place. So I thought I’d just put them all together .. well some of them.. so here’s a few patterns for you.
Many of these patterns are from a lovely group on facebook called The Art of Crochet https://www.facebook.com/groups/283213268380/
I’ve started on a few myself – but thought I’d share them before it’s too late
Materials used : Polyester silk purse yarn in cones ~ small amounts , with a 3.25 mm crochet hook. This yarn has a 4-ply or sport ply thickness.
I’ve used some nice shiny yarn for my creations.
These are not my original patterns .. just some of those wonderful free floating freebies over the net. J
Snowflakes are always welcome.. so here are five free patterns for snowflakes - and this is my colorful lil snowflake or tree hanging thingy
And a few more angel ideas

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
