Christmas is coming

and Elizabeth has been warming up the sewing machine.

Hand made Christmas decorations anybody?


After popping in to her favourite shop 'Mondial Tissue', which is conveniently next door to Leroy Merlin, a bagful of different colours of felt appeared.

Once home, it was out with the pencil and scraps of paper sketching out the various designs. Then to the cutting room, which was the whole of the house! If I wanted to know where Elizabeth was all I had to do was follow the felt droppings.

The purr of the sewing machine and...

Here are a few displayed as they should be on our Christmas Tree!

and all together now...

The results were worth the effort though.

They are for sale on Elizabeth's Etsy site, accessed at the top right of the blog.

It's the big round robin that does it for me!!
Better than the usual Round Robin letters...
