Crocheted Winter Solstice

We have a very small  Solstice Tree since we moved the computer desk into the living room to make room for Julian.  This year I found a pattern to crochet garland for it, and it’s so cute I made a star topper to match! I used a thin white yarn with a silver thread through it for the garland.  The topper I cut out of a pie tin, poked some holes in it and outlined the star with the same yarn, and crocheted around it. To save a bit on the electric bill, I put the pre-lit tree on a timer so I don’t even have to remember to turn it on or off!  It’s perfect! I also  took some time today to weed out Solstice decorations that I don’t really need or use and passed them on to someone on FreeCycle.  Next time I’m feeling blue,  someone remind me to make a donation to FreeCycle, because it feels so good helping out a person in need!

Whatever Holy-Day you celebrate, have a Blessed one!
