Stashbusting Saturday: Merry Making

There's a reason I've been MIA.
December is the season for get-togethers, gatherings, bazaars, etc.
It's also a time for holiday crafting and these purchases last Friday at the gift bazaar are what got my creative juices flowing.  
(A snowman sachet, Christmas coasters and holiday cookies.)
 This pretty beaded yarn has been in my stash for years and is finally being made up into a scarf.  Merry mandalas and tiny bowls have been crocheted and I finished another granny square basket.
 Snowflakes using a simple pattern from Sarah London can be used as ornaments and some have been sewn to the front of gift bags.
The gingerbread house is from ursulamarkgraf
 Christmas trees from The Royal Sisters
Santa from Dly's Hooks & Yarn 
Cup and saucer from Justjen-Knits & Stitches
Spiral Christmas tree from Planet M Files
Not sure where I got that last ornament design from as it is something handwritten in my notebook from last year.
 As you can see, Jingles is not phased by the merry making at all.
Linking to Linda's Crafty Corner for the stashbuster party.
Happy Holidays!

I adore how Jingles is keeping your yarn safe and warm. Love all the little fun crochets. Reminds me of my Grandma and so many things she always crocheted and knitted. Stash Busting Joy...

Cheers for all your good projects, Tammy! I need to finish crocheting an art bag for a ten year old, so I had best get busy! xx

Quinn said...

The holiday bazaars really put me in the Christmas Spirit! And Jingles looks so cozy sleeping there, but I bet if you try to remove that ball of yarn, the paw hangs onto it?
Thanks for weighing in on my garble window funny about the yogurt! Maybe we could do an international trade ;)

Great stashbusting, Tammy! Congrats on all your pretty finishes.

Linda said...

WOW, you should be doing craft shows with all that you make!! : )

We had Christmas with our whole family yesterday here. My creation was creating another fantastic party scene within our small abode. ;)

Have a great week. I only work part of Tuesday - Friday and then back in early January. Looking forward to a much-needed break, as I know you are as well.

Merry Christmas,

Jingles has found herself a wonderful bed right in the middle of your yarn. She's so photogenic! Festive post, Tammy.
