I've been thinking about Christmases past, and which decorations I loved and which ones weren't my favorites. I find that I tend to love the handmade, one of a kind pieces so much more than the mass produced ones (even though they are beautiful too). I am hoping to carve out time to make a few new things to put around the house this holiday season. I'm hoping I can talk my daughter into making a few new creations too.
I've been trying to find the perfect Christmas placemats or tablecloths for quite a while but haven't had much luck. We tend to get tablecloths dirty quickly, and I just haven't found placemats that I like. So, I decided to crochet a new set this year. I'm adapting a motif pattern into a round placemat pattern in Christmas red. I started the first placemat tonight and almost have it finished. I am much better at short term projects that I can easily put down and pick back up.
Pictures tomorrow... I promise!
