Made this little ornament in 2007 way before the book was published with my idea in it. You know who you are. Merry Christmas.

Crazy Christmas Tree Ornaments

I decided to make crazy Christmas trees out of scraps and snowman bells. I added a yo-yo on top for good measure. I haven't decided who will be the lucky person who gets these ornaments.

This is a clever way to reuse your left over Christmas cards. I made these with my mamma's cards from 2009, and I used a tag punch. Now I am ready for Christmas package wrapping. Merry Christmas.

Stack of Scarves-Tutorial

Stack of Scarves, originally uploaded by aaaandreaaaa.
I used Hometown USA yarn from Lionbrand to make these scarves. A friend of mine requested I make her scarves out of this luscious yarn. I used a treble stitch and whipped up a batch of these pretty babies.  It's cold enough here in North Texas and a good scarf is all you need.

As a gift to you here is how I made this scarf:

Chain 9.
In the 5th chain treble crochet. Repeat 5 more times.
Finish row with a treble crochet. 
Chain 4.  Turn.
Skip the first treble crochet and make a treble crochet in the next space.
Repeat 42 more times. 
Tie off.
When tying on be sure to tie new yarn at the end of a row.  Have enough yarn, so that it can be woven in and stitched over with a treble crochet.

Cut 24 pieces of yarn at 30 inches long.  Match two pieces together, so that it is doubled over.  With the loops in your left hand making a u shape, pull through the end of the scarf.  Bring the tails through the loop and pull tight.  Do this 12 more times.  Snip the loops once tied. 

S-35, Lionbrand. 
Enjoy.  Please email me with questions, if my directions do not make sense.  Thanks. 
Merry Christmas!
