I returned to my group today after I had missed it for a month or two due to my medication not being quite right but my GP and I worked it out and it’s a bit better now, and I’ve been having lots of meetings with my mentor from to set up my business and it kept clashing with the group.
The group seemed to be a little small today but I still had a good time and had a good chat.
We made these felted Christmas trees
I used the three colours of felt red, purple and green which were pre-cut.
I had sewn it together around the edges with white yarn/wool and because of talking and my cup of tea I didn’t get any further in the group and so I finished it off at home.
I took the materials with me and I chose to sow on the beads onto the branches as if they were ornaments hanging on the tree and put the metallic blue thread through the beads.
I then used some cotton to thread on lots of blue sequins as more tree decorations.
And to finish as you can see I had sewn a piece of ribbon on top to hang up.
I had a lot of fun making this and glad to be getting into crafts again, I’ve missed it.
I’ve been going to a workshop recently for women and it finished this week.
We went out for a meal last night and I hope we all keep in touch, and this lady who has been on the course with me brought along some handmade brooches. A lady who she knows had made lots of these handmade Christmas wreath brooches.
It’s crochet with little red beads and a cute little red ribbon bow, I know I didn’t make it but I thought I would share it with you because it’s adorable and with it being handmade.
I was flicking through the magazines this week in Tesco and my husband said he would buy me a magazine.
There were a few I was interested in but I settled upon Crafts Beautiful, it had a really good free gift of woodland friends.
It contained felt to make some felted friends and also an owl decoupage kit.
And also it had a free book with it
So all in all I think it was money well spent. I’d recommend it as a good purchase, I’ve bought Crafts Beautiful before and I’ve found it a very resourceful magazine.
It was my husband’s birthday on Friday and I managed to make him a card. Unfortunately I was in a lot of pain on Thursday and quite unwell on Friday but I managed to whip something up.
I hope he still liked it.
Happy Birthday (Dog Theme) card.
I have some papers stored away and used a blue theme for the background of the card,
and also in one of the posts I wrote further back DoCraft event I bought some dog stickers because my husband and I are dog lovers.
Then I finished with my happy birthday stamp in blue ink.
I hope you like it, I always welcome comments
