MINI BIRDIE ON TOP OF A TREE!


or is it a robin..bit of artistic licence going on here maybe!!
no black or brown wool so used what l had

 the mini is made with a magic circle and 7 half trebles to start and only 5 rows with a loopy tail and no added wing


Stripy Trees will have pastel buttons stitched to them later today...they're in the studio l think!!
took me a day making cone shapes to find the one l liked best for the red and white stripy tree
Wanted it to go with an Ikea stripy candle or two in the lounge

Took some photos of James new car but decided not to bore you with them good day out though and l got the boot when he had had enough of me hehehe
Fingers crossed he's home for Christmas and not in Afghanistan


Christmas Fact One!
Did you know...
If you received all of the gifts listed in "The Twelve Days of Christmas" song, you would receive 364 presents!

    It was my life....illustration fashion design bit of teaching own business and a life times study of colour and design
    Took early retirement 5yrs ago hung up the crafting mits for over 3yrs but it snook back into my life 2yrs ago with paper crafts a Canadian friend started me off scrapbooking Jan 5th 2007
