On 9 January 2010 I published the blog post D’oh where I listed all that I made for Christmas presents and mention that I forgot to take photos of them. Well, I’ve only gone and done it again this year. The problem is that I make Christmas presents and, as I don’t wear them, I forget to take photos, wrap them up, et voila it’s left to those who receive the presents to kindly take photos and send me them. Also, what with the days being short and the nights long, I complete many of the presents when it’s dark out and, as you’ll see from some of the following pictures, it’s not easy to photograph them in the dark.
This blog post lists what I made for my cousin Mie, her husband Dennis and their two daughters Ida-Maria (4) and Hannah (2) in Denmark.
- Beige/golden bracelet for Mie, made with a selection of glass foil beads from Spoilt Rotten Beads and a variety of stone beads
- Striped beret for Ida-Maria, made from purple and wine merino wool yarn
- Purple dress for Hannah made from Ghanaian wax print (here’s the grown up version)
- Bird mobile from a mixture of Liberty and Ghanaian cotton for Mie and Dennis
I remembered to take photos of these items, though the beret is incomplete – the crocheted flower is missing – and Mie’s bracelet was shot in the dark. But hopefully you can make them out.
And apologies to Mie and Co. if this is the first time you’ve seen these items. I posted the parcel 8 days before Christmas so I’m hoping they got to Åsum in time for Julaften.
