I did sneak in some time to get hooking something festive from the dearly loved simplicity of twine. Ooooh how i do love a good twine at Christmas and managed to find this last weekend in one of the Hastings Hot Houses
I have always loved wrapping my Christmas pressies up in brown paper and using a festive twine to tie up the parcel and embellishing with fresh holly or buttons or badges etc
So here is the gorgeous twine I bought
and hooked this from the lovely Victoria at Yarn around hook who found the pattern on Ellen's bloom blog
and this from the lovely Lucy at Attic 24
It was such fun to use twine and it's so lovely and starched ready for shaping. I thought I might get some of Alice's glitter glue out and paint some on these stars for a more sparkly effect and then they will be truly festive embellishments for a couple of my pressies this year xox
Anyway, I must dash to a friend's for mince pies and mulled wine! I do hope you are all having great festivity wherever you are and are finding little "free" moments to indulge in some crafting / hooking / knitting xox!
