Can you just see it sneaking in at the very bottom there? Well, I’m glad to say this time, I’m here to show you much more.
I can barely claim any creative credit for this one. The pattern is Grandma Twinkle from the clever Michelle at The Royal Sisters, and not for the first time, I’ve taken a massive dose of inspiration from fabulous Lucy at Attic24. Look at her darling Advent Stars here and here. Gorgeous!
I used Rico Creative Cotton leftover from my stripy Colour-Burst Bag to make them. I love the colours of that yarn so much.
I’ve added a few pom-poms, using my wonderful new Clover pom-pom makers. Have you seen these? They are very cool. I must admit to being a big fan of the primitive ‘two-bits-of-cardboard’ technique myself, but if you have quite a few to make, these clever gadgets are the only way to travel.
It needed something else, so Attic24 to the rescue again. This time, I used Lucy’s Tiny Teeny Hearts pattern. These little hearts are adorable and only take about two seconds to make. I used them to make my Falling Rain window dressing thingy and thought they’d be great here too.
I’m calling this one the ‘Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star garland’ Let’s have a better look at the whole thing shall we?
As you can see, I’ve left a lot of ends trailing down too on this one. I quite like the look, I find it kind of fits. What do you think?
My Little One was most intrigued by these colourful happenings and immediately wanted in on the action. Of course, I was happy to oblige and with Madam’s hand-picked colour choices, these “Twinkle, Twinkle, Baby Star hangers’ came into being.
I’m going to pop off now and have a nice relaxing, warming bath now and will leave you with this final picture of my mantle, all dressed for Christmas, garland, ivy, stockings and all...
