A really quick post this evening because I want to share the fact that I actually managed to finish all my Little Box of Crochet advent calendar before Christmas is officially over!
I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up with one a day throughout advent, but I’ve got the finished articles now for Christmases to come. Some of the days decorations were quicker than others, but I was so busy in the run up to Christmas that I think I only managed to stay up to date until 4th December. I’m not the only one though – I’ve been following #lbcadvent on Instagram and other people are still posting their makes now. As they say. It’s not winning the race that matters, but taking part.
Anyway, here they are in all their glory.
I bought a special little tree just for these lovely little home makes.
I think I should apologise for my dubious attempt at the baby Jesus (the one with the bizarre yellow bits sticking out that is actually supposed to be straw in the manger). It really did look better in the book.
I’m not really sure where I went wrong!
Anyway, must dash – have a very important CAL (crochet-a-long) from Attic24 to get going on. I’ve been impatient to start all weekend, but needed to get these little Christmassy makes done first.
