For example, I dreamed the ladies would have new festive frocks for the big performance of The Nutcracker today. Around midnight last night, I realized not even the first dress was going to get finished. But that didn't mean that at the start of the night I honestly believed that two dresses might have emerged!
Our Saturday was jam packed full of Christmas fun. We had some caroling to attend to, a Christmas party at church, etc. Sometime last week, I came across this joyful post over at Aesthetic Nest. When I saw her merry snowflake shirts I was smitten. I tried to think of which of my friends both crocheted and had a little girl. I thought of my favorite friend Allison who fit both requirements, and I sent her the link as my Merry Christmas gift to her. I thought she would have a blast making that shirt for her daughter. And I, in turn would have done my part to spread Christmas cheer to all around me, free of charge.
Little did I know I would wake up to an email from Allison Friday morning saying she had four completed snowflakes, and would I like two?!
Enter, sewing crocheted snowflakes onto long sleeved tee-shirts by hand, in the car, on the way to caroling:
Totally worth it, in my opinion.
Now my new Christmas wish is that you might have your own special crocheting friend, who will help turn one of your dreams into a real live thing!
Or maybe you know how to crochet yourself, in which case do not miss out on this awesome tutorial! Allison said it was easy. What do I know?!
