Christmas 1 || Crochet Robin

I originally used this pattern by All About Ami for it's intended purpose (which I will share soon!), but on completion thought it was the perfect shape for a robin, and the perfect season too! I don't think my brown wool was double knitting, as he came out smaller than expected, but I think he will sit nicely in the branches of the Christmas tree!

Christmas Decoration Planning!

Oh gosh, I have so many half finished or secret projects to share with you. I will get round to it! In previous years I have enjoyed making lists of plans for Christmas decorations, even if there are always some I don't get round to! I'm feeling very festive and also quite organised this year, so hopefully I have lots of time for some more Christmassy projects!!

If you've been following me on Facebook, you will have seen my Nativity coming together at last! I still need to attach all the eyes, and I have a box ready to turn into a barn!

I am also making an... alternative nativity?! Basically a little Christmassy scene! I already have 2 reindeer, and I want to add snowmen, Mr and Mrs Claus, fairies, penguins...
