:: 2 Christmases with family (one more to come)
:: and of course Santa came with some little crafty treats for me, so here is little preview into what I'll be working on in the coming months
Will try again after Christmas
Many more to go.....but at least I have made a start and not only am I giving the actually gift this year I'm also giving a Christmas decoration in the form of the tag.....
I'm really settling in to this lovely world of crafting.....with the bonus of saving a few pennies its even better
Think they have come out really well, I've already given one of the stars away as a Christmas decoration, think a few more might be donated to trees around Surrey and London, and of course my tree will be suitably adorned. In fact might have to get a bigger tree soon if I keep making and receiving new decorations for it, like the cute knitted Christmas Pudding, and crisp white snowflake
Looks pretty achievable in 2 days
Have to admit, I’m personally really pleased that embroidery and more traditional crafts are making their way back into being accepted as modern art rather than viewed as a hobby for older generations.
The industry saw a boost in sales of knitting needles and yarn when it was publicised that celebs and film stars were knitting and purling in their down time, I wonder if these latest pieces by Tracey Emin will be the first step in a similar resurrection for needlework?
