I bought some dowel and painted it black for hanging.
This is just a size comparison with one of my bed socks, LOL.
Below is a family photo of me and my husband with his children and their partners and little Bella just had to get into the photo, she is of course the prettiest one of all of us.
Below is our tree, decorated with my crochet ornaments.
This is a play centre that I obtained for 2 of my grandson's.

Well this is how much of it is left so far.
I'm not sure if I would have gotten around to this as quick as I have if it was not for my recent head injury which required 14 st's and gave me concussion. It was best for me to just sit and not do too much, which kept the nausea and pain at a distance.
The scrap bits of yarn that were way too small, have made it into one of my scrap yarn vase's, which will be used for decoration until I decide to felt it later on.

This is the joining side.
This is the opposite side to the joining side.
This is the size 4.00mm Tunisian hook I used.

The bag also contained some unfinished patch work with many hexagon disc's, I know nothing about patchwork, so I'll save it for some one who knows about it and can use it.
You are probably wondering what I will be doing with all of those short lengths of yarn, well I'm just going to tie them together randomly and use my yarn winder to make crazy balls of yarn that I can then crochet with, what I'll make I am un sure of at this time.

After the 4 were born and the long night, I did not expect any more and went off to bed, that was about 3.00 am. I was awoken before 7.00 am by hubby, who had to tell me there were now 5! Yes 5 puppies in all. You an see the 5th one in the centre of the picture below. He is a runt and not coping as well as the other 4, you can see his fur is wet, as his mother keeps urging him on and he is improving.
They are maltese cross and are lovely mannered pets.
I used the Tunisian joining method to join the squares. It is a very fast joining method.
And this is the end result of crocheting with the foil curling ribbon. It will be put up along with all of my other xmas decorations once I get them out and decorate for xmas.
