Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...


Just a quick check- in before December and this year(!) come to an end - to let you know I'm still here....


This month flew by way to quickly and with way too much to do (as always...), so blogging ended up the last on my priority list, unfortunately...

But I found time to make a few crochet presents for Christmas, so I'll give you a quick run through some of my latest projects from the hook and in the kitchen...

This December has been all about snowflakes - these facinating beauties that are so fragile and so unique. 

I've never made crochet snowflakes before, but when i first started I was hooked! A bit fiddly to make, I must admit, and it took me a great deal of patience and willpower to finish the first one, but when I found the teqnique it was all fun from there 

Here are a few....



I made some alpaca mittens for a dear friend, and the snowflakes were a perfect match for these. 
I could not resist putting on a little "bling" in the middle....❤️




Babymittens in alpaca....



...and matching booties ❤️


The full set!  If I find the time to write down the pattern, I will let you know...



All wrapped up and ready for a little newborn Winter Princess 



I continued with my snowflake obsession in the kitchen as well...

My lovely neighbours got a box of French macarons for Christmas



....but I saved a few for myself to enjoy with my coffee... ❤️

I love this cup! It's from a series of annual Christmas cups from Royal Copenhagen, and I collected a few of the, before they were discontinued a few years ago. Now I'm constantly looking for more through thrift shops and online - so far with no luck...



I made a few marzipan snowflakes as well, and they were perfect on this delicate and fragile cookie. The pattern is so intricate and pretty!






The traditional Christmas cake even got in to the snowflake theme this year....
This heavy thing will probably last until Easter, but there's just no Christmas without it ❤️






Until next year.....


❤️Live - Love - Laugh❤️
