FO: Circle Christmas Trees

I have had this pattern in my queue for a while to make. I gave 2 away as gifts and still have 2 in the pile. 
I would like to make more of these to have for gifts for 2016!
There is a loop on it to either use as an ornament or to hang elsewhere.

FO: Browns Coaster & Cozy

In addition to Alison's pierogi, she added to her order. Cleveland Brown's themed Coasters and Can Cozies. They were for a gift and the recipient loved them!

FO: Pink Pierogi

I made Jenn and I crochet pierogis a while back and Alison recently decided she needed to have one. Not just any color though, it had to be PINK. There might be more smaller ones in my future as well....

Crescent Wrapped Baked Brie

For Thanksgiving I made the usual baked brie- and it never baked through. 
I used a different brie than normal- it was thicker. I think it was part of the issue. 
I used apricot filling as a topping on one and homemade apple filling on the other. 
Better luck next time =)

FO: Double Corner Pot Holder

I wanted to try a pattern from a library book- in addition to making a new pot holder for Moi. 
I would use this pattern again. It makes a thick Pot Holder/Hot Pad

Sarah's Birthday Hot Pad

Miss Sarah had a birthday at the end of December- so I wanted to make her something =-)
What better than a useful Pot Holder/ Hot pad. It is double thickness- I used 2 strands of yarn.
I think I need to make myself one soon!

Started & Finished:  12/27/15
Yarn: Lily Sugar n'Cream Cotton- Pink and Purple
Hook: J
Pattern: Starfish Hot Pad by Jo Ann Loftis 
(From a book I got at the Library)

The pattern is 7 rows- but I skipped row 6 and went straight to 7 because it seemed big enough since I went up in hook size. The Hot pad curled a bit- so I hope as she uses it, it flattens out because of the heat from the dishes.
