well thats another one over! it was nice though and i really dont want to take my tree down this year! usually i cant wait to get the place tidy again but i really did like the tree this year . although the pics arent very good and i hadnt yet taken the picture down behind it. do you notice the rudolph on the top. thats what we made at sams school on open afternoon! The hanging is one i made a few years ago that comes out every year. Jodie is the dog ! a little mongrel rescued about 5 years ago from the dogs home! shes lovely. And the bear is erm....well he hasnt got a name yet ,but he is my latest needlefelted creation. i did try my hand at crochet but i just cant do it, well i can follow the stitches but the result is not what it should be ! i was getting quite frustrated with it. i found two little old fashoined booklets showing the stitches and also found some online tutorials but still I CAN'T DO IT ARGGGGG !!!!! a very happy new year to everyone x x x x x x xox

have been giving needle felting a go , its very addictive and quite therapeutic (have i spelt that right) anyway. later on when the light is better i will take a photo of "Ottis" , my very first 5 way jointed teddy bear!he measures about 3 inches standing, and he does stand. i am soooooo pleased with him! come back later and meet him x

here is a look at my "little house" quilted wallhanging, have yet to do the windows. i am doing the seed stitching on the background, i think it gives it a bit of life and texture. i might put it in either folksy or etsy when its finished although i know a friend of mine would love it so maybe it will be a christmas present! x

these are 2 camper wallhangings i was asked to make for someone, they are very bright and cheerful, sorry for the picture quality its been dark and miserable today and they are off to their new home tomorrow so had to take them today!!
here is the advent calendar i made about 3 years ago. i put little choccies in the stockings and away we go!! its rather jolly on the kitchen wall. The tree went up, and was down again not long after!!!! its wizz's first christmas and the sight of a tree in the front room was a bit too exciting and he was half way up peeping out , next thing its down ,cat and all!! anyway i think he scared himself because he hasn,t done it again....
