crochet hook holder and card

Hi, I have been playing about with my crochet and decided that I needed something to put my hooks in so I have made a crochet pot which holds the hooks securely in place but at the same time they are easy to get at.

As you can see the wool is a mixture of all colours, it was a ball that I bought from a charity shop for 20p, I knew that I could find a good use for it! The pot was made by covering both sides of a cardboard tube and base. The hooks slide inside the crochet stitches to hold them in place.

I have also made another Christmas card, this time I have added paper roses.

I am now starting to work on some Christmas cards that are made by recycling the old cards from last year, it is a challenge to see if I can transform them into something interesting, watch this space!
