Crocheting Gifts

I just wanted to pop in quickly today to share a couple of recent makes with you.

Makes of the wooly kind...


Two little hobby horses, one for my son and one for our god-daughter.
(It would seem I got abit carried away with the stuffing in the little brown horse.)


I found the pattern for free, here.
Crocheting the pattern itself was easy peasy, put the whole thing together, not so much.


Here's a little ear warmer I made for my Mum.
I crocheted a simple DC band and added the flower from a design in Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench.

The last few days have been boring, to say the least. We have so much snow here it's unbelievable. I've hardly left the house since Wednesday. I have been trying to find little projects to occupy myself (and avoid housework.)
Today I picked up the hexie cushion I started ages ago.


Who knows, perhaps I'll even finish it :-)

Lots of Love

Katie
