Evergreen Tree

I have been thinking on this idea for a while and it finally got out of my brain... lol.  Of course it was after the Craft Fair so I will have to make a bunch for next year... maybe a forest  :-)

The Tree is about 8" tall and 4" around the base

Here is a shot with Rudy the Reindeer.  I don't have this original one because it is on the way to Morocco to my friends daughter, so she can have a Christmas tree and reindeer.

Here I was just playing around with the pattern to make a snow covered tree.  The green spot is supposes to be where snow has fallen off the branches.  The effect was not exactly what I expected... lol. 

Off to start on the forest!

Craft Fair 2010

Well to start with I forgot to take my camera... sigh!  I took some pictures on my phone but they are not the best, some of the other craft members took some so I hope I can bring you them in the future. 

The Craft Fair this year was a great success.  The hit of the show for me was seeing all the creative ideas made out of the cardboard cup cozies.  Judy & Susan out did themselves with some awesome creations.  Feel free to ping over to my Church's web site for a few pictures from the Fair.  All the items are made by the Craft Group (10 - 12 active members) throughout the year.   Craft Fair Pictures 

I usually make: silent auction afghan (this year it was the Snowflakes Throw), other afghans or lap throws, dishcloths, and amigrumi critters.  With my daughters wedding this year I really didn't make that much stuff, so I was amazed when wandering around the tables I found so many things I had forgotten I had made... lol.

Since I didn't get pictures at the Fair I have pulled a few from my albums of the things I found.  Enjoy!

Every year I can't seem to make enough of the Amigrumi critters, so this year I am going to have to start early and get more made (famous last words... I am a notorious procrastinator ).... lol.

Thanks for stopping by!
