So while my new Noah's ark project is being finalized and the pattern tested, I have been thinking about all things festive and thought I would share with you some of my new creations. I have been playing with some beautiful hand dyed wool felt and these little birds are part of a set of three.Our family dog Jacko has also been admiring them so I am being careful to hang them well out of doggy reach!
I also couldn't resist the temptation to make a cute winter cabin. There is also a felted Christmas tree to complete the set which is still under construction. It is decorated with miniature brass bells and a timber star. Trouble is I haven't found the perfect star to go on top yet, so left it out of the picture. It looks very quaint here amongst the little white blossoms.
Whilst looking for some Christmas fabrics in my stash I uncovered a bolt of Prairie cloth which has formed the basis of these hand embroidered Christmas stockings. The texture and lovely cream colour works well with some Redwork detailing. I bought this spotty ribbon some time ago which was also put to good use
And here is something for the tree, I've made a set of five cathedral window decorations, three of my favourites are shown.. These were so much fun to make and the good news is that they are quick end easy.
The patterns for all these projects will be available soon.
