Hope you are all well and happy. I have been having a very lovely quiet weekend making ornaments for my upcoming craft fair next Sunday and decorating my house.
The tree is up, the baubles are out and all is looking pretty It is a little bit earlier than I normally do it but I am so busy this week and next weekend with various Christmas related things that I thought I would indulge myself (since the kids aren’t here to tell me I am mad lol).
I have taken some pictures of the latest makes – apologies as my camera has run out of batteries and so these are taken on my phone and in not very good light.
The first one is more of the ribbon pine cones that are so pretty and the second picture is of two ribbon tress that I made using the same technique.
I have had the polystyrene cones for these for a couple of years but only just got around to making them and they are just for me! I had a lovely day yesterday watching the Doctor Who 50th anniversary programmes while doing these.
Both designs are from Sue Schofield of Springwood House Designs, and are from the book ‘Fun with Ribbons’.
Books and kits and the polystyrene shapes are available from her website as well as oodles of lovely ribbons so go treat yourself and make something nice just for you. It is really easy, no sewing just pinning!
It is also my 6th blogaversary tomorrow so to celebrate I am giving away three of my hand-made Xmas ornaments to one of you lovely people.
Thank you for all your support and appreciation for this blog, it is really nice to know so many people enjoy what I do.
All you have to do is comment on this post – I will pick the winner on Friday 13th December (which will be lucky for someone!)
I will return next week, hopefully after a very successful craft fair, really looking forward to it. I am at Oakwell Hall in West Yorkshire if any of you are in the area.
Thanks for visiting.
