I've added a few more crochet things I'm doing, they are videos as at the moment I prefer videos to reading written patterns but I'm sure there are other similar patterns out there too.

I'm making "face scrubbies" and a matching face cloth for gifts. I'm going to add a face mask sachet and maybe another toiletry item like a face scrub and then put them in a cute little washbag as I like to wash my scrubbies in a washbag in the machine to protect them.

This one is a written pattern for a soap saver. So when you get to hte last bits of your soap to save wastage they go in this little pouch and it's made out of cotton yarn so it's nice in the shower. I'm going to make one for my dad as he loves his goats milk soap so I'll do one in "manly colours"

Then I made these cute little wreaths which I put on here before using the plastic rim part of a milk plastic jug container, I assume your milk has those in the UK?? if not you can use a curtain ring.

I bought the cutest little Santa bells the other day to hang from the wreath

My goodness....woke up to look at all these ideas flowing out of My Makes...exhausting or exhilerating?Not sure which..... who needs Santa Clause when My Makes is on the scene...oh oh. I feel a poem coming on...

August we think of Christmas again
Gathering fabrics, patterned and plain.
What can we make? Look at Sarah's thought
Or others on here..who needs shop bought.
Creative and fun, from Santa to snow
Ideas are coming and from here flow.
So get out those boxes of last years array
of Christmas pieces (and start to play).
Bells and bobbles, with fringes the lot.
Work out your very own Christmas plot.
Remember Sarah? her house Christmastide
Must be the talk of a whole nation wide.

So...reindeer and snowmen, Santa the lot
Work out your very own Christmas plot.
Mine this year will be quiet I know
But that is the scene as older you grow.
I have fond memories of Christmas galore
15 round my table and games by the score.
When my children were young is was oh so exciting
People dropped in, there was no inviting.
Oh for fond memories, precious yet free
So enjoy preparation, I love that you see.
I'll make little things for neigbours up here
For some have just no one to bring them good cheer.
I prefer now to look in on the scene
and remember the Christmases past where I've been
Good to see people enjoying their day
Good Health and God Bless them all I now say.
