Third Annual Ornament Swap and More

I have started to receive my ornaments as part of the Third Annual Ornament Swap - 10 hand-made decorations are winging their way across the world to my door. So far I have received 4 and managed to photograph 2......


A needle felted snowman by Nysa


Beautiful laser cut glitter deer by Wynn Studios....

I have also been making some new decorations to give to people.....gingerbread men based on  a set of cookie cutters that I have and Shrek's little ginger friend..... Christmas trees and more...all hand cut, hand stitched (including each individual green stripe on the elf's clothing) and so soft...the wool felt squares that I got in Paris from La Droguerie and Entree Des Fournissuers along with the collection I was given by Beth over at Red Yarn  are all beautiful!



I loved making the little sweeties for the gingerbread men- 2 pieces of felt, one slightly shorter than the other, the shorter laid inside the longer and then rolled together and stitched.
