Happy New Year! I love the week between Christmas and New Year’s. It has always been a kind of limbo week for us. Seemingly not part of the year just past, but not the new year either. I’ve traditionally spent the week finishing up all my planning for the new year, but this time I completed all that earlier, so I had a busy week getting ready for all the new projects I have planned for Pink Mambo! One of those projects was preparing the photos to get this Mini Mandala posted for you.
These curly-toed elf boots are fun to make and fun to give, and can be made to fit all sizes from little bitty baby elf to big daddy elf and everything in between. Today I’m featuring the youth and adult sizes. Baby and child sizes are in this post. They’re so cute in traditional Christmas colors or any cheerful candy color combination.

Happy Thanksgiving! Today we are ready for the third and final installment of the crochet Candy Cottage Gingerbread House. It’s time to add the decorations—door with heart, candy stick doorposts, gumdrops and icicles. I went pretty simple with this gingerbread house. My others, Gingerbread Cottage for example, are festooned with lots of candies, peppermints, candy canes and more. I decided this time to go with a simple tan, pink and white confection. OK so let’s go!
Are you ready for the next installment of the Candy Cottage Gingerbread House? I know you are! Today we will crochet the tan gingerbread pieces to cover the little cardboard house that we made in Tutorial part 1. Front and back, sides/bottom piece, and roof halves. Then we will glue them in place to be all ready for the last installment with the most fun part—the frosting and candies! Love it. And I can’t wait to see your creations!
It’s almost turkey time! This little crochet guy will look great hanging in your kitchen for Thanksgiving. I hope you will enjoy making him. From my family to yours, we hope you have a happy Thanksgiving. We are looking forward to being together with family and friends and giving thanks for our many blessings as we share a dinner of traditional favorites. We live simply but are so blessed and very thankful. I wish you a lovely week!
OMG I’m having cuteness overload here! How sweet is this little crochet pink and white trimmed gingerbread house? I loved designing and making it. In contrast to my previous gingerbread house designs, I’ve chosen a yummy pink and white color scheme for the frosting and candy. The whole thing is mostly single crocheted and chains, and crocodile stitch for the roof. We’ll talk more about those pieces in Part 2. Today’s post is the first of three. Here is the posting schedule:
Red, white and blue stars adorn your mantel with this patriotic star garland. Each star is 4 1/2″ across, and strung together they make a garland just right for the average mantel. Individual stars make great coasters for patriotic holidays too. [Read more…] about Memorial Day Crochet Star Garland
