Garnstudio Drops has a nice knitting/crochet pattern advent calendar
I like the things they give patterns to - except for the doggy jacket - my hubby would kill me if I tried to do something like that to our dog LOL
Tip Junkie gives tips on sites that give instructions or patterns for ornaments
Folding Trees gives instructions on kudusama balls, the Japanese paper folded flower balls.
Ellit gives a pattern for a felted heart pocket, in Finnish. (It really isn't brain surgery or rocket science, give it a try.)
P.S: I have never thought much of quilling... it has had a "kiddie craft" label on in my mind... but then I saw Yulia Brodskaya's quilling work... Oh my...
P.S.S. Go and see Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson's wonderful collages, they are amazing! Get ideas of what to do with wrapping paper... ;-)
