Fo Friday #7

So I have been having a few ideas recently, one of which I would like to share with you. I love, LOVE Christmas, its my favourite time of year, everything about it makes me happy! So I wanted to do something on my blog to mark this amazing time of year. I know I'm early but I like to be prepared. Recently I have also been taking part in different swaps and events (giveaways) were you get something nice in the post. So I have been thinking that I would like to do something on my blog and when better than at Christmas.
So this week I have been working on these
What do you think? I came up with the pattern myself, its not perfect but I think they look ok.

So my idea is that I would like to send everyone a Christmas card with one of these cute knitted Christmas trees on them! I thought I would set up a linky and if you wanted to receive one you would add your name to the link, then you would email me to give me your address and then I would send you a Christmas card. It would be wonderful to send them all over the world and if you would like to send me one back that would also be great! So just now I would like to know what you think, would you like a Christmas card from me, do you like the trees, do you think I'm crazy?!!

Well I'm off to check out Tami's blog and see other Fo's!

  2. that sounds like an awesome idea for a christmas card!!

  3. oooh, what a wonderful idea! Especially to get a little trade of knitting friendship from around the world.

  4. Fabulous idea! And who wouldn't love receiving a darling knit tree?

    Blessings, Debbie

  5. I like to knit ornaments for my Christmas Tree. Would putting knitted Christmas trees on my Christmas tree be overkill, I wonder?

  6. Great idea!!Love the trees.

  7. I think they're great!!! Love the idea of using them for cards.

  8. Those are adorable, I'm so impressed that you made up the pattern yourself. I really love the shape and stitch texture and would love to get one in the mail! (And I'd totally send you an ornament in return.)

  9. I had to smile when I saw your trees. They are so cute and make me wish that Christmas was closer. I love the idea of swapping little handmade ornaments and cards for the holidays. Count me in!

  10. Those trees are adorable and so much cuter seeing that you designed them yourself - I am very impressed. I would love to do a Christmas swap so count me in : )

  11. I love your Christmas card idea, it is so warm and loving! Count me in and congrats on making the pattern yourself!

  12. Those trees are so cute! Lovely!

  13. Those are so cute! I love them.

  14. It's been almost 90 here the past couple days, I could use some snowy weather. I like your cute little trees.

  15. aaaww how adorable are these!!!! thank you for visiting my blog xx

  16. Your trees are so cute! I like the idea to put them on christmas cards. I would love to get a card from you and send you one from me!

  17. These trees are so cute, and I really wish I could knit!! And the idea of X'mas card is brilliant! Will definitely send you one back from Japan :)

  18. Ha ha- I don't think you're crazy at all... unless you don't charge for the cute trees! Those look like a lot of work! Sooo fun!

    Thanks for linkin up w/ us @ Whatcha Got Weekend!!!

  19. Really beautiful and lovely fir. Very nice.

  20. I think its a great idea and I am just as crazy about Christmas as you are it sounds... I've been shopping and working on things for Christmas since January... I really like to be prepared...
    I'd love to know the pattern for the trees! they are so cute!
    New follower from the say hi Sunday blog hop!

  21. Very cute trees, I love Christmas too :)

  22. The trees are fab - love your idea too.

    How fab would those trees look with little beads or buttons on them too? (I know, I'm creating work!)

    It seems Christmas is getting a lot of attention in the craft world just now!

  23. Count me in - I'd love one of the Christmas tree cards, very unique, I've never seen a knitted card before!

  24. Love the trees... you must be getting RSI joining in all the linky parties... I am going to have to ake a look around at them all...

  25. It's so great - it's getting festive already. So much excitement.

    I agree with Wendy, you should totally decorate with bead - oh then make into a garland.

    It's ok for you to tell me to shut up by the way lol.

  26. Adorable! I love those cute little trees! Please share this at Show & Share starting Wednesday!

  27. I think they look wonderful! I wish I was as creative as you.

    It's nice to meet someone else who loves Christmas as much as I do!

    Best wishes,

  28. How cute are those trees! And what a lovely (and awesome!) idea to send them with a card.

  29. I love this idea you have, I would love to receive one at christmas. bee x

  30. I think you ARE crazy. I do things like this every so often and live to regret it (about right in the middle of trying to finish). Do NOT send me a card - you have enough to do already - but the trees are adorable, and you have a sweet heart.

  31. The trees are so cute! I will have to try and make some.

    Here are some of knitting and crochet patterns:

  32. They are ace and make me want to learn to knit!I'd be totally chuffed to get one of those in the post! Ahh, I love that the crafty bloggosphere is getting christmassy, yipee!

  33. I can't believe that you came up with these yourself! They are darling!! Thank you for sharing this at our Strut Your Stuff Link Party! We hope that you will join us again tomorrow!!
