Merry Christmas Eve

It feels like ages since I've given my poor old blog any attention, so sorry for the unexpected absence! Life just got busy and blogging has been on the part of my to-do list that I just didn't seem to get to! 

Oh well, these things happen don't they! 
It's Christmas Eve here and I thought I'd share my shiny, happy, Christmas dangley thingy with you.  This is our answer to a Christmas tree this year, non-traditional but colourful and fun.  I think it suits the hot Summer Christmas that we get in Melbourne. ( It's going to be hot tomorrow, so might head to the beach after the big lunch!) 

I also had to show you the very cute mushrooms that I made from The Little Box Of Crochet November kit.  Have you heard of  TLBOC?  It's a subscription box that arrives once a month with a different project and all the supplies you need to make it.  The first one was these gorgeous mushrooms designed by the amazing Kate from Greedy for Colour, aren't they so cute!! 
Amanda Bloom is the clever lady behind this new business, it is based in the UK, but she sends all over the world, so I couldn't wait to sign up!  Have a look at her website over here if you are interested in seeing more about her lovely boxes. 

I turned my mushrooms into hanging decorations and I love them on my dangley thingy! 

......I strung some lights around it too, it looks very pretty all glowing at night, a bit hard to capture in a photo....

So how have you been going?  
Are you looking forward to a nice festive break after the busy build up before Christmas? 
I know I am! 

I'd just like to thank you all for visiting this blog, even if the posting is somewhat sporadic!  I love my tiny corner of the crochet crafty online community, it is so supportive and kind!   I am planning on being far more organised and regular in the new year, so hopefully there will be a lot more posts!  

Also I'd like to thanks all the wonderful yarn lovers who have supported Little Woollie Makes Yarn Store during 2015, I so appreciate that you take the time and make the effort to shop with me, I am only a little shop and your support is just the best, you are all fabulous!! xxxxx 
I have a big wishlist of yarns that I'd like to get in the shop in 2016, so stay tuned, there will be lots of yarny love happening around these parts this coming year! 

Wishing you and your families all a very Merry Christmas, our gathering is quite small this year so it will be a lovely chilled out day, lots of food and drink and sitting out in the sunshine! 
Have a great day tomorrow! 



  1. Awe, I love your mushies! Merry Christmas to you, I hope your day is fun-filled, present-filled & tummy-filled!

  2. Love the mushrooms! Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas! Sitting in the sunshine sounds wonderful. Warm here but rain and more rain.

  3. Mele Kalikimaka to you and your ohana!

  4. Love the mushrooms...but a box to send over sea is to expensive for me :-(

  5. Merry Christmas to you, Julie! The mushrooms look gorgeous! I just can't imagine how a person can create such a masterpiece. Thanks for sharing your work!

  6. Adorable creations!!! I just came here from some other blog and I'm so impressed to see Christmas woollen mushrooms. I would love to have such fantastic corporate holiday party ideas. Please dear share here for me!


Thank you for taking the time to add your comment, I love to receive comments and read them all, even if I don't get around to responding to you, I am just not that organised!
