The pointed star afghan is beautiful!  I have been looking for a different type of afghan that I can make as a gift to my adopted soldier stationed in Iraq... Thanks for the great idea..... It is stunning!
Thank you so much!!
Try this one.....it's 9 points but you could do a 12 point and that's what I recommend......


It was easy to put the stars on.....

Time to finish up all those last minute things everybody!

My table runner STILL isn't finished, but I've got time and the stuff thats left is quick to do so it should (hopefully!) be all done in time. Otherwise all my gifts, crochet and otherwise, are finished! Hope its the same for the rest of you!

Merry Christmas everybody Smiley

Hi you all! Merry Christmas!
Well, how was it to see your loved ones open the a-lot-of-love-and-a-lot-of-work-presents you had made them??? I LOVED IT! Cheesy My sister had tears in her eyes when she got her present; an afghan, and my mum was all weeeeee-heeee when she saw her purse So much fun! Cheesy My grandmother opened her present and found a tablerunner, and she said: "well, THIS is art". Grin

I will absolutly make more for my family, they are GREAT recievers!

Hopw you all have the same good feeling, that the hours of crocheting was worth it.. Smiley

I made a few sets of potholders for the family that was in town and they all loved them, I will find out in a few wks how everyone likes the afghans I made, they are going to my family in Washington State and wont be there for a bit.

I need to find a pattern for a simple table runner for a gift next yr, already thinking about next yrs Christmas, I want to make as many presents before then as possible.

Its always nice when people are so appreciative like that.  I have alot of family that really love homemade gifts.  But, theres one person though, whos not technically family though, an older lady.  (whom you think the older ones would be even more appreciative) shes not, didnt even make one comment on the item I made her.  And the store bought item she didnt comment on either.  Not even a thankyou.  Which really hurt my feelings because of the time I put into the item.  But then again, this old lady really is a total grump, nothing is good enough for her.  unless its a diamond earings or something.  Its really rude, apparently she lived a very pampered life and doesnt realize that some people live paycheck to paycheck.  And would rather spend $50 on tons of toys for their child then $50 on a pair of gold earings for her, whom isnt even family.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

I actually didn't finish my grandparents table runner in time - its still not even done Sad It couldn't be helped though, I've been having some problems with nausea lately and crocheting has been totally out.

Everyone else though LOVED their gifts Smiley

This year was our first "handmade Christmas," where my husband and I really tried to make most of the gifts for our two girls.  I crocheted, stenciled, and sewed, and he built models for them. 

It was a lot of work, and I'm not so sure we saved any money!  But for the first time in a long time, I really felt good about the gifts I gave.  I didn't feel like I wasted anything--not my money or my time.  The girls loved their sewn items (lap top covers with zippered charger pouches) and their stenciled T-shirts.  My husband loves his crocheted afghan.  My MIL loves his afghan so much, she has asked me to make one for her!  That was the best moment, because she usually turns her nose up at my handmade items. 

And it's over and I am glad, because I have accumulated a long list of things to crochet--for myself!
