I have finally finished my kit, it was started before the new Millennium, when I was visiting by Mum & Dad in Atlanta. Mum took me to Michaels for the first time, being from the UK I had never seen large craft stores on this scale. I got this in their Christmas in July event, again something I hadn’t seen before. I think that is why I remember where & when it arrived in my stash, it’s good to see it finally finished.
Now what next …. something new or something from the stash??🤔
This year we decided on a pre lit pop up tree. I added some extra ribbon (like the more expensive version) but it still lacked some thing. I have been looking at the twelve days of Christmas felt decorations by Larissa Holland on Etsy & brought the pack of the first 3 ( this years offerings)
Partridge & pear (tree) are finished.
This weeks little presents added to the stash. I’ve started an Advent CAL with the rainbow yarn & now have some other ideas for the yarn, I may add some beads for extra sparkle. Shawl pins are always handy, tea time & farm themed this week.
I’ve also been busy finishing my presents for my lovely technicians, I show them later in the week, & decorating for Christmas.
See I even have a token Christmas tree,’for the little people’, who have a problem with no Christmas tree. We have a small but growing herd of reindeer in the front garden ( to anoy the neighbours).
Just wishing everyone a Happy Christmas.
And you are all invited for a virtual slice of Christmas cake.
Stephen thought these angels were Christmas versions of Dr Who’s weeping angels, so I could not resist writing don’t blink on the cake.
Stephens ABC picture is still a work in progress, all will be revealed on Sunday with my SAL update post, but I may have it finished by the new year.
I made Mum & Dad a couple of fragranced door hangers.
These are from Luna. That’s another couple of things finished.
We gave them to M&D today, they really liked them.
I got the pattern for Christmas jumper dachshunds from Esty, but the pattern has no obvious link on it.
Happy Christmas crafting. Still got a few things to finish.
I’ve finished my second ‘flower doll’ by Zabbez. The pattern also contained a snow ball, but I didn’t feel it was needed
The first photo didn’t show the hat / flower well.
And from the back.
I’m still working on several projects at the moment, including a second poinsettia one.
The pattern is by Zabbez, I loved making him. I’m hoping to get a few more made for Christmas. I’ve brought a second pattern, so he has a friend. Also I find it impossible to make the same thing over & over.
I used hair spray to stiffen up the pettles on his hat.
Another piece of Christmas pudding anyone?
I enjoyed making this one the beaded net enclosing the bauble is a little tricky.
I still have another couple of bauble kits left to make but they are not especially Christmassy , as I’m leaving up my wishing tree this year ( for seasonal decorations ) I thought I might make them later. As I have received several lovely kits for Christmas & some tools with the wire & jig to play around with.
Unfortunately I did not complete all my marking before Christmas so I had really better think about doing that, before the end of the holidays catch up with me.
Today we celebrated Becky’s belated 21st birthday & Christmas all in one. Becky’s is really into Harry Potter & is a member of the quidich team at Uni. So my castle cake tin has been put to good use. I used each house colour to add detail to each turret, the house shields I found on line, Becky’s really liked it. The girls took the chocolate cabin home to finish eating , let’s hope they enjoy it.
