Happy Christmas giveaway

Hello everyone,  I didn´t hold a giveaway for my blogaversary last month, so in appreciation of those who take the time to visit and leave a comment I thought I would say  thank you by celebrating a surprise Xmas giveaway.
All the comments made on my blog posts during this month of  December and up until yesterday entered in the giveaway. And what am I giving away?  well the four little mug rugs with a red crochet edging seen on my last post.


I numbered the entries in their order of publication (so starting from the 8th Dec) and the winner, chosen by Mr. Random Number Generator is
.......... Number 9,  Carol from Stitching Dreams.  Congratulations Carol. I will be in touch with you requesting your mailing address.

I also promised to show in more detail my crochet tea candle holders which are very easy to make and I think make a nice decorative detail.



The pattern is of a snowflake and therefore I started making a couple in white but then added a couple more in red.  The tutorial can be found here in two parts and although it maybe isn´t in your own language, you can follow the lady easily as she makes the snowflake very slowly and clearly.


I ordered some battery tea candles from Ebay as we can´t get them here and of course they are much safer than normal candles.



My last photo says it all.  May you spend a very Merry and Blessed Christmas.
Sheryl
