Happy December 3rd!

It's Monday, and Mondays this month mean ornament time ^__^

all patterns that will pop up during this years advent calendar will be posted on the blog first and when the month is over I will put them all together in one humongous pdf file to download easily. Yes there will be a whole holiday collection this year, I really hope you will enjoy it!

Let's start with tree ornaments.
these are a quick project, you can totally crochet one in an hour.
