Advent Swap and Crochet


Well I have been a busy bee, but as Christmas is coming and December is full of Birthdays, Anniversaries and Celebrations I have been making gifts none of which I can show yet.

I have just spent several hours sorting and wrapping my gifts for the lovely Hookin' With LaaLaa my Advent Swap Partner, it has totally got me in the Christmas mood. 
I obviously can't show my makes but here is a sneaky peek at my parcels for Lynda, brown paper packages tied up with string (a.k.a.bakers twine), 


I hope these contain a few of her favourite things.

In between making gifts I have been pottering on with my little crochet squares, I started making these little crochet squares when I was on holiday back in August.  I adore these and I have my heart set on making the springtime throw from the Cute & Easy Crochet book (Nicki Trench).  


 It's going to be slow progress but well worth it I think.

Right back to the Chrismas Makes, I'm off to get my elf hat on...

Love your little crochet squares. It will make a lovely blanket!

Looking forward to seeing your swap gifts you have made for Hookin with laa laa.

I've just finished my swap gifts for the christmas decoration swap hookin with laa laa hosted and enjoyed getting creative with some makes. :)

You are far more organised than me with the advent swap, I still have bits and bobs all over the place ready to be parcelled up and I haven't even sorted the tags yet!

Love the squares they are lovely
