FREE Pattern for crochet angel ornament..

I recently saw a link for a free angel pattern on my Facebook feed. The pattern is super easy (only four (4) rows of crochet); you could easily make several in an afternoon.

Here are two angels I made yesterday (I haven't blocked them yet). The white one on the left is made using Knit-cro-sheen which is a size 10 thread. That made an angel that is about 2 inches. The blue one on the right is made using Premier Cotton Fair, a size 2 cotton yarn. With that yarn I was able to get an angel that is about 3 inches which will match the size of my crocheted snowflakes so I will continue to use the Cotton Fair yarn for the rest of my angels.

Every year I decorate a 6 1/2 ft. tree in my entry way with icicles and snowflakes (just one of many trees I decorate...I love Christmas!). These angels will make a beautiful addition to that tree.

The free pattern is available from Kim Guzman at Crochet Kim.

Pumpkin Table Scapes

I have to show off my latest crochet piece I created from an Annie's pattern. It is just perfect for fall decorating and I plan to use it right through Thanksgiving.

The pattern was very easy to work took about 2 nights to crochet and a hour or so the next day to attach the pumpkins. The completed centerpiece measures approximately 23" in diameter.

Also included is a pattern for a long table runner which is approximately 12"W x 29"L. The instructions call for #4 worsted weight yarn and I used Red Heart Super Saver in the colors recommended by the pattern designer. The pattern is available by clicking on the above picture.

And, of course, if you have a lovely centerpiece, you definitely have to have something to put in the middle so yesterday I baked some pumpkin spice cookies made from a recipe I found on Pinterest.

The recipe makes about 2 1/2 dozen soft, cake-like cookies that are absolutely delicious.

If you would like the recipe, click on the picture with the plate of cookies to be taken directly to the recipe from "The Recipe Critic".
