Wed., I sat down and made "Caught On A Whim"'s, Crochet Spiral Christmas Tree. http://www.caughtonawhim.com/2013/12/lets-crochet-christmas-tree-ornament.html I thought it was cute, but I made another one and tweaked the pattern a bit by adding two more rows of crochet. Then, I made the original pattern a second time and sewed it to the one I made, matching up the inner side. Then I wound it into a Christmas Tree shape and this is what I ended up with. It's a lot fuller, which is what I wanted. I have spent 3 whole days though trying to sew it together so it won't fall apart and I ripped it out many times until I got the fullness that I wanted.
So...today, I come home from school and take the tree out of my bag. I've had the following comments, "Oh, you made Max (the cat) a hat" and my favorite, "Look, a party hat!" and the person that said it proceeds to put it on top their head. I am seriously thinking of trashing this cute little tree now. I can't stand snide comments from the peanut gallery. :( I was going to decorate this up but right now, it's just going to sit around until I get my feelings "unhurt".
