There is no time like the up coming Christmas holidays to bring out the creative spirit in all of us. This year I have decided to create a White Dove ornament for my Christmas tree.

Basic structure is created with 26 and 30 gauge wire, #20 crochet thread with number 6 (4), hook and a sytro ball in the main body. The inserted beads are from Knitpicks (#6, rainbow clear).

This dove is actually about one half scale. My research information said that they are 12 in from tip to tip, and have up to a 18 inch wing span. They are part of the pigeon family.

I hope this inspires you to start thinking about what you can create.

Happy knitting/crocheting

This will probable be my final post for a while, because my hours will be filled with making cinnamon rolls, and more cinnamon rolls(check out my post  “Merry Christmas to All”  the recipe is there.   That said, I want to wish all my followers and their families a blessed Christmas.

This time of year for me, at least, is not about shopping, presents and all the hooplah.  It is a reminder of the promise God has made to all believers in John chapter 14.   HE is coming to take us unto himself, that where HE is we will be also.  So it is not just about a baby in a manger, it is also about the promised glory that he prepared for us before the foundations of the world.

To that end, I designed a 16 inch pillow top to express my hope for the future.  I have entitled this work , “The Call.”  It is my version of that moment when the trumpet will sound and King Jesus will call us  home to be with him.
