I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
We had a busy time over the last couple of weeks, which included two Christmas days - one on the actual day with my in laws and the other on Boxing Day with my family. But more of that in another post perhaps.
Tonight it's a quick reveal of all those crochet gifts I have been busy making since right back in August, but that I couldn't share until they had been received!
Starting off, in no particular order (although this was the first gift I made), with the cushion I made for my granny.
For my aunt I made a set of little coasters.
My mum and brother's wife both got a Russian doll cushion. The pattern is from Annaboos House.
My husband's sister loves the outdoors and Calum (12) asked if I would make her a chunky cowl similar to the one I made him a couple of months ago. I also made her some matching wrist warmers. I didn't have a pattern for these. The colours are also not as dark as they look here but I was snapping the picture late at night before wrapping them up!
Another lovely Anaaboos house pattern for my mother in law's gift.
I can't remember if I already shared these but these were the little purses I made for the boys' primary school teachers. Yes, you've guessed it, another Annaboos House pattern!
I wanted to make the older boys a little something crocheted too, and thought long and hard about what I could make James (14) that was still cool enough for him. Thankfully Pinterest came up trumps and I found this pattern to make baby Groot from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. I wish I could have taken a picture of James' face when he opened it up! It certainly had the desired effect!
For Calum (12) I made this Koala cushion.
And David got a similar penguin one.
Alasdair (5) has asked for a monkey cushion, and is happy to wait for it. As you can imagine, I didn't have any more time left before Christmas to make anything else!
