Whew.....taking a much needed break from putting up Christmas decorations. I do love to leave the snowmen out just a little longer. They will be boxed up sometime in March. I also love to leave out some red and white, at least through Valentine's Day. Speaking of Valentine's, here's another fun trinket box for you to make.
He is assembled like all of the other characters, except for his arms and legs. They are pipe cleaners. Don't cut the pipe cleaner keep it the full length. To add the arms just insert the pipe cleaner between the stitches near the neck and push through. After the arms are in place, bend the ends of the pipe cleaner to form little hands. And then bend the elbows. Do the same thing for the legs, bending the pipe cleaner into a "V" shape before you insert it between stitches. His antennas are about 1 1/2"
Trinket box painted, ric rac trim added and little hearts cut out of paper.
Valentine desk. A happy place to think, draw, and design.
The craft room is a buzz with Valentine, the rest of the house is still Christmasy. As Elizabeth says, "Side by Side holidays". I love it.
This sweet little couple started my crocheting adventures. I wanted my father in law (yes he knows how to crochet-cute story I will share another day) to make them for me, but he told me that if I wanted them I would have to make them myself. Oh boy! Do I dare to learn this complicated looking craft? I wanted them so badly that yes, it was worth it. I love to crochet now!
I contacted the company to see if it was copyrighted because I wanted to share it with you. But, it is still under copyright protection. The company was so sweet in their reply. I can tell you the company and pattern number so that you may contact them to purchase it. I will do that tomorrow, I am too
lazy tired to go back upstairs to get it. I will let you know in this post right under the snowman/woman photo.
Tomorrow, time to get busy. We will conquer the trees. As much as I would love to keep Christmas around for a while, it must go :(
Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to keep your hands busy,
