1: Stars

Today  is the 1st of December and Christmas is in the air. Over the next 4 weeks, I thought I would do a series of Christmas posts; a sort of Advent calendar of posts with all kinds of Christmas and winter-related things; poems, songs, traditions, crafts and food! (I know for some people it isn’t winter where you are, but it is here in the UK!)

So, to kick us off, some crochet.  I made some stars using lovely 100% lambs’ wool, and thought they would look good appliqued to cards.
