Joy of Gifting

Its that season of the year again, the Christmas season, the festive season. Though we do not celebrate Christmas, i LOVE LOVE to see the Christmas spirit all around me. In HK there are lot of Christmas decorations floating around, the whole town is twinkling and the best part - SALES!! Everywhere...and why not take advantage of it :)

I really have been meaning to blog more my dear friends, but somehow these days time seems to be a precious commodity... Also I have been crafting more and blogging less..!! MUST mend it..

A dear friend of mine requested a small crochet item from me. Have a look at it..

Can you guess what it is?

It is a set of scarfs for the deity she worships. The deities are dressed in resplendent clothes and they even have seasonal outfits. Since the onset of winter, she wanted to put some warm clothes on for them and asked me to do some for her. She picked the colors and I picked the pattern. The white scarf is from the free pattern HERE and the red one is basically STAR STITCH, a very good video for the same can be found HERE. I was so glad that my handiwork was getting put to such special use!

Also in the little princess school we had to give a hanging 3D Christmas decoration.
Made this Flower Star for her. It was truly a joint effort as the Hubby punched the flowers, the little miss put the tiny stars into the golden pins and I pinned it into the thermocol star.

She also wrote Merry Christmas on it! 
Topped it with a red bow and voila it was all done :)

Hope you all are getting ready for the festive season, one way or the other!
Love to read and share all your adventures as always...
