I have manage to do a little bit of crafting last month :) I always love when I can fit some crafting time in now I need to do that a little more often.
So my first project I want to share with you is my pillow graphghan. For those of you who don't know what a graphghan is let me explain. A graphgahn is a afghan that is crocheted by using a chart just like ones that cross stitcher's use. So I started on something small for my son. I thought it would be really easy but it was actually a little over whelming. So here is my Pikachu pillow that I made with Red Heart yarn in a single crochet (sc).
It is not perfect but I am not as intimidated by the graphghan's any more. I learned a lot with this attempt and look forward to learning more maybe even try it in a different stitch. Now to figure out how I am doing the back of this pillow.

On the cross stitching front I finished Brooke's Book's seasonal house winter (as if you can't tell what season it is lol). I am missing a thread color so there are some empty spaces but I think it looks pretty good. I have also finished my first of hopefully many ornaments. I love the way it's finished with the mason jar lid it gives it that country type feel to it which my husband is looking for a country themed holiday décor which I would love to be able to t provide some of that by hand making them. The kit is from dimensions called Chalkboard have Faith. I customized it to our red, green, and gold theme ornaments by substituting the white stitching with DMC Light Effects E3852 Dark Gold. I have Hope and Love left to do I still need to get Joy.
Well off to watch Tangled with the hubby and work on my corner to corner (C2C) afghan.
HUGS and stay warm if you live in the Northern States
