In the meantime, I have been trying to think of creative ideas for Christmas gifts and came across this idea last weekend. I thought it would be neat to work up and stick in a gift card or something, and then the recipient could have an ornament for their tree. I found some neat holiday yarn at Walmart and decided to create with it.
It wasn't hard at all, but the result is a bit unexpected:
That's one big ornament, isn't it?! LOL It actually fits Jessica's hand! Then I looked at the size on the pattern (which I neglected to notice when I started-selective vision, possibly)...it's supposed to be big 6 1/2 inches long. Guess I'm doing pretty well with gauge, then. So, this could still work as a gift card holder, as long as there is something else (like candy maybe) included so the gift card doesn't get lost in that thing. Then maybe the recipient could hang it up as a unique stocking or something. LOL The picture shows it nestled in a tree (close up), and I'm thinking, that must be one big tree, too. The thumb looks all wonky in the picture, not sure why.
Might have to put that thinking cap back on and get my fingers flexed to do some more searching for ideas.
We've sure been enjoying some lovely fall weather. Up until yesterday, that is. A storm blew in and dropped the temps about 30 degrees from the day before. We got some rain, and then our first snow and something I don't remember seeing before, snow pellets! I was working on something and could hear a loud banging type noise. I couldn't figure it out at first, so I went to look. I was hearing them fall. It was kind of wild. Not used to seeing hail in a snow storm. It was louder because we have a metal carport. It didn't last too long and today the snow is melted. We could get another, more significant, snowfall tomorrow. We'll see!
Seeing as I'm talking about the weather now, I'll sign off with thanks for stopping by! Hope your week is going well.
