Finally, here is the last of my finished items posts! Again - yet again! - I had no homes in mind for these when I made them, but I think they look pretty cute on the handles around and about the house.
Also, when I was thinking of how to link my Christmas Tree Bunting Garland thingy together I thought about holly leaves. I found this great pattern and set about making some. They were too large for my garland, but after making three and then adding some small circles for berries they made a great brooch. I have been wearing it around and about and it has made me feel very festive.
Another finish is these Christmas trees. The fabric printed into tree shapes came with a magazine - sorry, can't find it or remember which one! - and were meant to be double sided with the same print. However, I wanted a small forest to go under my dome, so I backed them with some green stripy fabric that coordinated with the Christmassy prints and then I had six instead of three trees! There were a couple of spools included in the kit, but I needed more and I used some vintage cotton reels too. I think they make a nice grouping!
I think that is everything that I have made and/or finished now for this year, but there is always the possibility...
Next week I will concentrate my posts on the decorations and tree and my cake decorating - that could be an adventure!
In the meantime I think that I have done pretty well on completing things in line with hubby's decree. Just don't tell him about the other 1000 things I have waiting to be done, shhhh!!!
