The finishing touches ...

It seems that the final post of 2015 has sped round just as quickly as ever,
and suddenly here we are all ready for Christmas.

For once I seem to be actually ready on time and pretty much organised,
and I've even surprised myself with that one
as I have no idea quite how that happened !

Last minute crochet makes have all been finished off,
from tiny sparkly stars

used for present tags

and decorations,

    to small jingly robins

to hang on the tree

or fill small spaces in stockings.

There's even been time to make the cutest of chocolate orange covers,

to be given as presents

or kept for evening treats.

So, all that's left to do now is to let Christmas begin
and to wish you all the happiest of times with friends and families.

Merry Christmas Everyone.

See you in 2016.

( Patterns for all three of these makes are all in the right hand side-bar. )
