Holiday Mood Crochet Bookmarks and a Rose Brooch

Hello, dear friends! Christmas was successful for all of you, judging by your homely, happy posts about celebrations. May it be like this always:) We also had a nice Christmas, though I'm the only Christian in the family (and also an Orthodox). It was pretty cold, foggy and chilled when we went to the church  in the evening. All our family lit candles to honor Jesus and pray for our health, however I really don't know whether it is enough just to lit a candle... Because my FIL fell ill just 2 days after this. Nevertheless, we believe, that God will make things all right. We need to believe because we need support.
Well, away from philosophical mood to real deals. These are other crochet bookmarks I gifted to my friends. It's so easy and fast to make them - perfect for the last minute gifts.  I think I need one too:). I might post some pics we took on Christmas day as to show you how it's celebrated in India. Hope, it' s not too late for this update.
This is a small ego-crocheting project from that new yarn I bought. I made a rose brooch, which will be attached with a safety pin. It'll add some color to my new grey cardigan. The background is a much bigger ego-crochet project, it's completed and ready to have a photo session any time soon I get good light (the sun seems to be abandoning us these days). 
I found this yarn looking pretty in combination with white one. I literally fell in love with this orange sparkly yarn and want to buy more of it for some good crocheting time. I'll be back soon with some more holiday posts.
Have a great weekend ahead and a happy coming up New Year!

  1. Lovely gifts Anna! We also enjoyed Christmas....had a nice family time.
    That rosette in orange looks pretty. Really curious to see the 'background' project and the'ego-project'. You come up with very innovative names!
    Take care! :)

  5. I just love your crochet work!!! To answer your question about the bottles on my blog, the small coloured ones I bought in a store on the west coast...I can't remember which one, but they were festooned with wire wrapping. My ex-h HATED them and said he'd only consent to their display if I took the wire off, so I did. The clear ones were purchased in a craft store with all the other plain glass items for glass painting, etc. :D

      I love the bottles you made, very creative and a great home decor!

  10. I had to read back to your previous post to see what an ego project was. Ha! I don't often make anything for myself. :) I'm sure all your friends are delighted with their handmade gifts. Always so special to receive something from the heart. Wishing you a wonderful new day. Tammy
