The Christmas Challenge. Yarn ideas and labelling.

Dear Annabel, Beautiful yarn – it makes me wish I knew how to crochet or knit (LOL). The story of Janet really touched my heart. So many people suffered in the Holocaust; total families were wiped out. Such an evil time. I am sure you blessed her so much by your thoughtfulness and kindness. We have over 3,000 children here that need brown bag lunches for the weekend. There are over 2,000 homeless adults in the city. Knit gloves and scarves would be a blessing to them. Many people in nursing homes have no visitors and no family. Flannel is very inexpensive here and nice shawls can be made quickly; lap blankets are another blessing to them. I look forward to seeing everyone’s wonderful pictures. Love and hugs, Glenda Dear Glenda, When we open our eyes there is so much opportunity to help be it warm scarves or packed lunches. I cannot fathom people who are bored when there is so much to do. I have odd wool left overs and can easily make some spare rugs again this winter. And you are right, flannel, fleecy, soft fabrics can all make just lovely scarves, knee rugs etc. Many thanks, with love Annabel.xxx Annabel, your work is absolutely beautiful! I love those labels, thank you for sharing the links. I want to print off some of those labels too as I plan to have some crocheted items in my gift trunk this year too! Can’t wait to see what you’re doing with the hankies! Thanks Patsy, I hope the labels might be handy for you. I love how they look! I have a fair few printed and ready for use during the year. With love Annabel.xxx The story you told gives me thought to always care for others and make sure they are okay. You also gave me inspiration to do something with a hanky I have. One last thing you make me feel better about having more than one project going! Have a blessed week Dear Vickie, oh yes I always have a few projects going! Its nice to have a change sometimes but overall I get them finished and thats lovely too. I really love hankies. Glad you found some inspiration! with love Annabel.xxx Hi Annabel. I love reading your blog! I think I would like to learn how to knit and crochet. Could you recommend how I can do this? Would you suggest you tube and if so is there anyone in particular I should watch? I need the real beginners / dummies version!! xx Dear Michelle, I cannot encourage you enough in this as you will have so much fun. Yes go to You Tube. Search “learn how to crochet for beginners” and start from there. You will find teachers you like better than others and just note and follow the ones you like. I like Yolanda Soto Lopez. But try a few. Also if you are left handed search with that included. Sit and learn chain then single crochet and double crochet. One at a time and just practice. Everything I have ever made is just these stitches in different orders! Let me know how you are going! Good luck! Love Annabel.xxx DearAnnabel, I love all your work shown above in photos! The links will be helpful as I have a suitcase of wool and tend to get so overwhelmed or bogged down when I try something and get stuck so I will try and focus on one thing.I love the link to the scarves they look good for gifts too. That was a touching story about Janet,I feel at times that I carry the weight of my father’s land and stories he’s told,as he lived a block away from where Anne Frank& her family hid, although he was much luckier than them and many others. Have a lovely week ,love Maria xxx Dear Maria, Really?! I never knew this… it is easy for me to say but that weight does not belong to you. But I don’t know the answer to that and I know others who feel the same in certain ways. You always spread goodness and kindness thats all I know. If you have a suitcase of wool then you have lovely possibilities and winter is ahead of us still which is when wool projects are nicest I think. I get lots made then. And I love scarves especially the continuous cowl style ones in flattering colours and soft yarn… I made a few last year and I wore them all the time. I will make more this year. Have a browse of Flamingo Toes knitting and crochet sections… I know you will see things you just love. Also … we need to put a photo of your hats in show and tell! With love Annabel.xxx I love your blog, feeling blah now, but just reading your frothy pinkness, yarn, love and warmth I feel a little better for reading it. Thank you Annabel. Fi xx Dear Fiona, HUGS, I know you are in recovery mode, amongst other things… and thank you. Pink softness does me good too! Its lovely. Will email you. Love Annabel.xxx Annabel, lovely post as always! You are such an artist! I was really touched by the story of Janet and how you responded with a heart of generosity. It prompts me to want to reach out more to share what I have (or can make). Also, I can’t wait to see what everyone has been making too! I am pretty much a one-trick pony at present (I make cards, but I used to quilt a lot), yet I am learning to think more creatively and your posts are really helping me to expand what I think I can possibly do. This past week-end, I purchased a huge package (180 sheets) of floral papers, and immediately thought of you. I will take them with me on vacation (“holiday”) next month and make stacks of cards with my dear mother-in-law. With love from USA, Teresa Dear Teresa, Thank you so much. There are so many needs and it can be easy to focus on other countries (where there is much need for sure) but also it turns out my neighbour was in need. I sort of learned a lesson in that. Floral papers! This sounds lovely to me! You know me well! Have a great time making cards. They will be handy to use and packs of a few would be very nice gifts too. Thanks Teresa, love Annabel.xxx Dear Annabel, thank you for another beautiful blog post, I also want to knit and crochet but if there is an extreme beginner that is me when it comes to knitting and crocheting. I can relate to the story about the rugs/ blankets , there are people who really need it and fortunately there are people like you Annabel who help out. It is such a kind thing to do. My card making for Christmas gifts is coming along nicely, I am trying out some new ideas and slowly I am growing more confident . That sounds silly after years and years of card making but I like to play it safe!. My gift cupboard is looking great, I have many many gifts already . I will be able to be extra generous this year I hope. do you know if there are any card making labels anywhere Annabel?, to say that a gift is a set of cards?Thank you Annabel , Love Barb. Dear Barb. I know you have used You Tube to learn skills. Search “crochet for beginners” or “learn to crochet” etc and just start a little practising. There is extra benefits. First it is super fun. Next I feel content when I have spare time to go on working on something and it certainly helps the no spend, stay home days. Then you also end up with a skill and new gifts to put away. Learning patterns is good for our brains too, its like crosswords are good for the brain, so is knitting and crochet especially pattern learning! Well done on all your card making already this year! You are off to a very good start! With love, Annabel.xxx Dear Annabel, the pictures of your hand work are beautiful! So is the story of Janet! Blankets are so warm and cozy! They make wonderful gifts! Love all your ideas! Love, Teri Dear Teri, Thank you! Quilts of course are just as warm and good to give as you have done. I find crochet I can do in the evening and sewing I do in the day. I like a bit of both! I hope you are having a good week! With love, Annabel.xxxx Annabel, Everything is so beautiful I especially love the pink knee rug that is so pretty and the pink ribbon just really tops it off. The ladies that can crochet have a real gift! I am loving this challenge because I know you will have lots of pretties to show. XOXO Vicky Dear Vicky, I will have you crocheting next! If you have one minute of spare time that is! I had a good saving today, came home and wrote it in my book happily! Thinking of you as I did it! With lots of love, Annabel.xxx So many ideas as usual Annabel, you must lay in bed at night thinking lol! I love those gorgeous labels, and I look forward to seeing the hankies you are making. Cant wait. What a heart warming story about Janet. I crocheted my best friend a warm blanket from scraps as she needed one when she went into hospital for dialysis. She was overwhelmed when I gave it to her. You have inspired me to make another one! Thank you. xTania Dear Tania, That was a beautiful gift for your friend. No wonder she was thrilled with it. I want to make spare rugs over winter. I know the needs will come up and my Mum makes then and gives them to the Sisters (of charity and others) as they always know someone in need and give them out. I am always watching for yarn too. I know you must be having a hot time this week. I hope your garden is holding up! With love, Annabel.xxx I really appreciate your comments thank you! The aim of my blog is the be a place of encouragement and happiness. Very rarely is anyone rude. Actually only twice so far! If you post a rude or aggressive comment I will read it but not publish it, thanks for understanding.xxx Spam is never published… if you are advertising a product or selling website your comment wont be published. I am inundated with stuff about drugs, horses and weird things! I am not going to publish this stuff! Thank you.
