It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

With all of the beautiful snow we are getting here in Saskatchewan, I am in a very Christmas-y mood.  Two more weeks of school and we are out for Christmas break! Woohoo! I can't wait to put up our Christmas decorations this weekend.  I have been crocheting stars and snowflakes like a wild woman to put on our tree.  I haven't found many good patterns online, I get all of my patterns from my Baba.  The image below is three generations of the amazing ladies of our family.

Me, Baba and my Mom

  1. Printing this off tonight to get started on some. I'm hoping to put one in each of my kids' teacher goodie boxes for Christmas. Crossing my fingers that they look as good as yours!

    1. Awesome Becki! I am sure they will turn out great. Pressing them with your iron on a steam setting at the end really helps too! Hope you enjoy :)
