Christmas Through the Year

I finished a few items for Christmas:






Two crochet Angels











and a cute triangle container
(tutorial from Val)


I did make a few more bookmarks but they've already found homes.  How do you manage to put away these gifts so they'll still be around by December???

Your Christmas angels turned out great. I also like your thread catchers or triangle containers. Have been looking for a pattern to make them and then I see you mention about a tutorial. Would you be willing to share the site address so I could go there as I don't know who Val is? Thank you, Nola

now I wished you lived just up the Road from me then you could teach me to crochet. Love the Angels also your hexie flowers from previous post.

Wow those Angels are so beautiful and love the thread catcher too. Thanks for joining in with Christmas Through The Year this month.

I am impressed with you crochet angels, so sweet. Great thread catchers, have to make some of those.

The angels are so sweet, if only I could crochet. I adore the fabrics you used on the threadcatcher.

Your gifts are great! Love the beautiful Angels. I quickly store the gifts in a wardrobe and don't look until the next month. I guess I made a mental pack with myself NOT to give any gifts away before Xmas... but at times it's tuff! LOL Good luck :)

Love your little crocheted angels - very pretty!

I agree about not keeping out of the box of Christmas gifts. I've already raided mine twice for little gifts. It was very nice to have something ready to go, but at this rate, there won't be too much left at Christmas time!

Love your angels. I wish I could crochet.
I want to make some of those little containers too. I have the directions but need to take the time to make some. They are cute.

Your angels are darling! What a beautiful addition to the Chrsitmas tree or table! And I think everyone needs a thread catcher by their side - yours is very pretty.
