Been a bad blogger this month,
....lots of celebrations throughout November
....but still managed to fit in some crafty time along the way.
I'm really enjoying my latest hobby of...
knitting premature baby bonnets for charity
and some Christmas Stockings
...and some smaller ones for the tree.
...and was shocked when my knitted Nigel the Gnome
bagged me £50 of Hobbycraft Vouchers
by winning Star Letter
Knitting and Crochet
(Can't wait to have a crafty spend-up!!)
I've seen some lovely rag wreaths on pinterest, and often thought of making one, but just never got around to it, but I was inspired by Susan at our knit group, who made a lovely one to display her knitted goodies, and showed us how easy it was to make a rag wreath.
So I decided to make one in my shabby style...
with some off cuts of cream curtain lining
then I decorated it with buttons, cotton reels, paper flowers, frozen charlotte doll, handmade padded fabric heart and a hessian bow.
.....then added some battery operated lights to give it some extra sparkle at night.
Now, must finish my Christmas cards....and not long to go before the rest of the festive decs go up!!....can't wait LOL!
Thanks for peeking!
