WOOLLIE - CHRISTMAS CREATIONS

I am trying to get on track for Christmas! Yesterday I was with friends, , Louise, Jane and Laurence doing a joint felting project. We had been busy knitting pieces of poinsettia (along with Ally and Andrea) to make a felted poinsettia Christmas wreath to give to the people who run our knitting group over at Twist Fibre Craft to thank them for another great year of company, inspiration and yarn!



Today, I've had a day at home making lists, writing cards, getting some knitting done etc. I have also been finishing decorations for the 2007 Holiday Swap organised by Freshly Blended and Cake and Pie - check out some of the great decorations created by the more than 600 people involved in this swap!! I can't show you my decorations yet as I'd like to at least get them in the post before I do but I have them wrapped and ready to go!!



I have also made some of my favourite decorations - a needle felted ball as the core, hundreds of small squares of felt stitched in place.....

Di, I love the wreath and the needle felted ball! You do such great things with felting! I realized I had such a busy week that I hadn't checked in with you for a few days!

The felted poinsettia wreath is gorgeous. What a lovely idea. Reminds me of those old chenille poinsettias. Do you know those?
