I've just realised I've had a bit of a fairy theme this week without noticing! So the finishes I can show you are a new Christmas mushroom fairy house. I make up the embroidery as I go and this time came over all festive :-) Here's the front door.......
the snowman outside......
and the Christmas tree too.......
With the fairy lights strung around the roof they're all ready for Christmas in this cottage!
Feeling festive I put up my tree at the weekend too, a new black tree and pink, white and turquoise decorations it looks really pretty,
At the top you can see my little fairy that I made yesterday. I wanted a fairy for my tree this year as I've had a star for a few years and it's just not the same. I also heard a while ago that a fairy is supposed to bring good luck for the coming year and we could all do with a bit of that! I had been looking around for a lovely and there are some gorgeous ones but they were all too expensive for me this years so I made my own. Here she is close up, her wings have a gold thread in them so she sparkles a bit :-)
I'm a bit late posting the ami swap this month but here it is! For those who don't know, my fabulous friend Steph and I swap an amigurumi every month. It's such fun to get a present every month! I made two little mice for Steph (her fab blog is HERE)
Thanks Steph for sending me the photo after I totally forgot to take it before posting, lol! My lovely parcel from Steph contained this fabulous owl!
and a partridge in a pear tree!
Thanks Steph for totally spoiling me as usual! I love them all, the owl is really cuddly too :-)
So that's me all caught up here, I've made a lot of cards this week too but they need to wait until they've been sent and received so I don't spoil it by showing them first. I think I might post some of my Christmas makes from years gone by next time, they are all out on my walls and looking lovely so it's a good time to get photos!
Have a great week everyone!
