Hello my dear friends! I am here again, it's such a happiness to me as always! I do appreciate for all lovely words you have made on my blog, if only you know how it's meaningful to me, thank you! Hope you have spent a great week!

These days I really enjoy a lot of beautiful stuff for welcoming Greeting season from your wonderful places, they all are adorable, give me a very Christmas feeling!

I have just finished some little things for Xmas, very little, very handmade, and I am very please to share :).

A Christmas Card: I made this card for all of you, my so lovely friends, wishing you a very merry Christmas!
You'd like to have the pattern for this tree? You got it, right here, so simple, and so fun to make.

- The Xmas Tree:
With red, chain 14.
Row 1-3: 14 single crochet, turn.
Row 4: 1 sc decrease, 11 sc in next stitches (skip the last stitch and turn) (total 12 sc).
Row 5: 12 sc across. Change to Green, turn.
Row 6: 12 sc across, turn.
Row 7: 9 sc across, 1 sc decrease in the last 2 st, turn (total 10 sc).
Row 8-9: 10 sc across. Change back to Red, turn.
Row 10: 10 sc across, turn.
Row 11: 7 sc across, 1 sc decrease in the last 2 stitches (total 8 sc), turn.

Row 19: 4 sc across, turn.
Row 20: 1 sc decreae, 1 sc (total 2 sc), turn.
Row 21: 2 sc.
Row 22: 1 sc decrease.
- The little star: I used the pattern here, but just made for 2 rounds.
- The base of the tree:
Row 1: skip 4 first stitches, work 6 sc across through the back loop of the beginning ch, turn.
Row 2-4: 6 sc across.
- French knot embroidery to make the snowy dots.
Make your own card as special as you want!

Star ornament: The lovely star, with very Christmas colors!And how it looks when getting along with the Christmas tree! Lovely friendship, isn't it?Pattern for this star is still from my fav book, making it made me really happy!

And, the last one I would love to share, a first piece of my knitting, my practice of stockinette stitch, it also has Christmas colors, oh a bit shy :)
I love to learn knitting, love to do crochet, and other lovely crafting, just wish I got much free time... But we seem hardly have enough time for what we want to do :)

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and enjoy it!!!
