Comfy Cozy

I guess beautiful cool weather brings out the comfy cozy in me.

I've been happily crocheting between cups of tea and reading. 

Crochet Santa Mug Rug

I think these Santa mug rugs are too cute.
Instead of putting a pom-pom on top of Santa's hat,
I'm going to put a jingle bell. 
When I've done all the crocheting (I figure everyone needs a set of four)
I'll go back and embroider the face.
You can find the pattern at Moms Love of Crochet.

You may remember that I made 4 of these last year.

Christmas Afghan

I had yarn left and decided to make a couple of lapghans using the moss stitch.
I first saw this stitch on Lemonde De Sucrette.
You can Google moss stitch crochet and you'll find several You Tube videos featuring this stitch. 
If you can chain and make a single crochet you can do this stitch.

Speaking of yarn and textiles,
I had the pleasure of meeting a fellow blogger last week.
Linda Lewis is a wife, mother, grandmother, weaver, textile artist and all around talented lady.
She loves Maine, tablescapes and roses, too.
We had a lovely breakfast.
Please go by and visit her at Lulu's Musings.
Say "Hi" from me!

Today I'm joining Sandi at HOME.

Wishing YOU well, much joy, and a beautiful Thanksgiving.

Good Morning to you, I love the cup and saucer in your header...well actually the whole header is fun. Your crochet is beautiful and I think the red and green throw looks so nice. Isn't blogging wonderful, we meet so many friends from around the world through our words, so to actually meet someone, who you have got to know through writing, must feel marvellous. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Best Wishes Daphne

How did I miss this? Now I see what you do after those morning walks to Black Walnut. I may have to get some crochet tips from you as I am very awkward with any kind of needle/hook in my hands.
You are very sweet to refer your readers to Lulu's Musings. I hope some have stopped by.
