I was invited by the folks at Stitch Craft Create to participate in the Handmade Christmas Decorations Blog Hop, and I am so glad I said Yes! They publish such wonderful craft books, and have a page with craft eBook downloads, very convenient for when you want to make a last minute gift and need fresh ideas immediately.
I chose to crochet a Christmas decoration, so they sent me Crochet your Christmas Baubles eBook (oh, the photographs! the ideas!):
There were many tempting projects as you can see from the cover. I chose to make the White Christmas Tree:
Stitch Craft Create has a competition going on, too (click here to sign up your project). Show them a picture of your own handmade Christmas decoration, and you could win one of these prizes: 1st Prize: £100 SCC voucher, 2nd Prize: £50 SCC voucher, 3rd Prize: £25 SCC voucher to spend at their site.
Below is the schedule for the blog hop, which has been happening since the beginning of November. I have looked at all the projects and am inspired - find some time and check them out, as well as Stitch Craft Create's Handmade Christmas page. I will definitely get the Handmade Scandinavian Christmas book after I saw all the fun projects the bloggers made!
