Busy!

I think we are all busy this month, certainly if you are a crafter it is time for a bit of overdrive. Here’s what I have been up to this last week.

I went to a half day workshop for Christmas decorations. It was a little disappointing in that we only got to make item but it is quite sweet. A ribbon Christmas tree.

Basically a polystyrene  cone with folds of ribbon pinned in. The strips are 6 cms long and pinned by holding the long edges right sides one on top of each other. Approx 3 metres in two colours needed for  a 14cm cone.Mine is only 12cm so I adjusted the amounts.

Next I have started to fill the little baskets I bought at the stitching show with rosebuds and decorating the lid with a ribbon and button. I shall be using my homegrown lavender in the screaming boxes.

And finally I completed the tunic I was knitting for Miss F which is miles too big and won’t be her size for another year I think!!

If you have enjoyed my Creative Embroidery posts and the Stitched Project I have started a new blog for them . I posted my November Stitching project on there which you can find at avoicethroughstitchhere

And now I am heading to Handmade Harbour for crafty inspiration.

Love to know what you have been making this week.
