Rudolph the red nose reindeer, had a very shiny nose!

Good morning and how are you all this Monday?
Another busy shift for me in work this morning, cleaning all the way today.
Whilst I am beavering away I thought I'd share the recent crochet project that I have been telling you about for a wee while.  My lovely friend Gayle has now got her present, which I told her to open immediately and start using.  You will understand why when you see the photograph.
I hate to admit it but I am really happy with the results from this pattern, I freely admit I wasn't sure about it when I first started it.  By the finish I was actually wanting to keep it, which is always a good sign if you are making it as a gift.  If I like it then I'm sure the recipient will too.

Without further ado, here's Rudolph from all angles.

The pattern is from Millionbells which I purchased on line.  How cute it he, I really must make one for myself now.
My friend loves a novelty tea cosy so I thought this would be right up her street, and it was.
I am so glad she loved it as some of you might have seen from my Facebook page.

I spent yesterday getting in a little baking before Christmas but more about that later this week.
The Christmas cake production has started too, or should a say the fruit is stewing in alcohol as we speak.
As for Saturday, it was a busy one at work but the highlight of the day for me was the Strictly final.  
It was such a fantastic show, all the finalists were amazing but as Ore hadn't danced at all before I do think he was a worthy winner.  
Personally I did have my eyes on Danny to win, (who wouldn't with his Samba, I could watch it on wraparound 💖) that guy can move!

That is all from me today, I hope you have a good one.  As Arnold would say, "I'll be back" tomorrow with some more Christmas crafty fun.

Oh my Erika, your crocheted Rudolph is gorgeous, no wonder your friend loves him.
Clever you. I've given up trying to learn, I'll just stick to knitting.
I must be the only woman in the land who's not watched Strickly, Alistair just grumps about all those useless celebrities, so it's less hassle not to watch, shame though as I love dancing and the costumes.
Anyway, have a good day even although you have to work, Kate x
