I thought I would show my new earrings from my dear hubby for my birthday. They are so pretty..The stones are green I think topaz..not sure though..
I think Stitchy McFloss asked me if I made snowflakes and such to decorate my house for Christmas. I told her that I didn't, but made Christmas trees.. Well here they are..up and ready!! I leave them up all year..I like the colored lights and they look good in that space..I don't want to have to decorate for every season..I am lazy..These trees are crocheted with Red Heart thread..2 pieces held together through out..I usually have a blister or two by the time I am done. The white tree in the middle I believe is 3ft, the two green are a little under 2 ft. I have another that is 4 ft, that I wil put out after Thanksgiving. I am wanting to make 2 more this year a little smaller that the 2ft, and one more big one..They have a frame made with dowels and wooden embroidery hoops (hubby makes the frame for me). I put lights on the frame and pull the crocheted tree over like a sock. I hope you can enlarge to see the detail. I guess one could put ornaments on them..I don't. They look so nice without all the stuff..just lights..
My dad made the church for my daughter's wedding..she didn't have a place for it so I kept it, the duck was also carved by my dad and the santa too. The Train is my husband's contribution. Well I am off to try and make some order out of my craft room..once again...Have a great week my dear blogger friends
