OOO! Its been very dark and gloomy here over the last few days. Just the odd flash of sunshine here and there, well more there than here.
Sneaky dog follows it around the room, it's so funny sometimes how she'll cram herself into the tiniest slither of sunshine! It's starting to escape from her in this picture, just her nose left in it!
It's been really difficult to take any decent photos, but I couldn't wait any longer, I had to just get on with it.
Here are the goodies I made.
All these new cupcake have cloves stuffed inside them, so they smell foody too.
I must admit I felt like I'd been sewing and crocheting solid for the last three week, but when I gathered every thing up, there didn't seem to be that much! Mind you I have also crocheted myself a hat, knitted a baby cardigan for a neighbours new baby and started a granny blanket! So I suppose I've not done too badly!
I made five little bunnies.
Do you remember Octobers 'friends challenge' to create a Christmas decoration from a felted woolly jumper? Well this is the rest of the felted jumper. I really enjoy hand embroidery, it's so relaxing and of course, there's the added bonus of being able to do it sat downstairs in front of the fire. Aaah! Toasty toes!
I made it into a little bag with a scrummy stripey lining, cut from a rather jazzy men's shirt I purchased from a charity shop. You can't beat a bit of recycling!
And this is the bag I've produced using the felt I made in my felting tutorial.
'Flip', this is the other side. The felt has been embellished with applique and machine embroidery.
You can't tell very well from the photo, (bad lighting, you know) but the lining is a lovely shimmery, rusty, red fabric.
You do realise of course, that I'll have nothing to show you next time! It's all here!
I'd better get on with something sharpish.
Till next time. Fi x
