So.. I wanted a little tree for my desk at work. After a bit of searching, I found the pattern for Penny the Pine Tree.
I added some ‘tinsel’ – sparkly yarn (crochet chain) and some ‘baubles’ – needle deleted balls (if you’ve been reading – that’s what they were for!)
I’m quite happy with how it turned out, I’m sure it’ll make my desk look Christmassy!
My child may not forgive me for this when she’s older, but I’m out of practice and wanted something to mess about with…
*gimp – GNU Image Manipulation program, not the other other kind. If you were looking for that, you’re way, way off target and possibly a bit odd, but each to their own and all that….
stabbing things repeatedly with a needle is actually quite stress relieving (although sometimes painful)
Can also be used as an emergency voodoo doll
