Crocheted cowls are definitely the theme this year!
Buttoned... a shorter version of this
... and using the same pattern as the blue cowl (alternating SC and DC) I crocheted a cushion cover (above).
Every year I try to make some of my Christmas cards and this year I used a photograph I took back in February.
Using PicMonkey I faded the edges, spun him around and gave it a more frosted look
All set now to get writing the cards and wrapping the gifts *opens a bottle of wine and puts on a Christmas CD*
