Zoom in on hand made decorations

Looking through my boxes of Christmas decorations, I was interested to see the two amigurumi pieces that I made last year (reindeer head and big Santa) - they were my introduction to the delights of crocheting cute figures.  I've made so many ami pieces this year that it was strange to think that I was learning the techniques just a year ago and that I am now so comfortable with the approach that I created the small Santa last month with no pattern (and I'm making them to sell for my crafting for charity group) and I made this fun winter wreath  - inspired by Repeat Crafter Me

also delighted to see hand made decorations from Miriam's decoration swap last year and wooden ones that my parents used to make to sell. I do enjoy 'discovering' what I have packed away at the start of December.

I always enjoy discovering the snippets of life everyone shares through their zoom in zoom out shots each week, thank you to everyone who participates regularly and occasionally

These decorations look great. There are a lot of memories hidden away in the Christmas decoration box. I love getting them out and thinking when and where I got them and boring the girls silly with my stories. One day they will wish they had listened!

..and the little snippets we learn about you too. I liked that nugget about your parents making the wooden decorations :)

You must be a pretty speedy crocheter! I'm still holding my wool the wrong way..

Oh! what an amazing wreath! my goodness you must crochet at the speed of light! Do I spy some little skates? I was looking at some photos taken last Christmas of some decorations I received from the swap. I'm looking forward to seeing them for real this weekend.

Oh I love the little snowman wreath! I'm looking forward to doing our tree this morning and having the decorations bring back special memories.

Oh that wreath is cute - I like finding all the special bits in the boxes when we haul 'em out too.

I've so enjoyed this meme - thank you for organising it.

LIke Missus Wookie, I have so enjoyed this meme! I'm late to the party this week, but certainly wouldn't want to miss it. Your crocheting is amazing. I can barely knit, and can't crochet a stitch.
