Greetings to Everyone and a big thank you for all the people who take time to leave comments on my blog. I really appreciate them and the I get inspiration when I visit your blogs.
Hope you all enjoyed the decoration Challenge at Out of a Hat last week. There were some amazing decorations. Sorry that you missed the deadline Tracy as your tree ornament was fantastic. You can see it here everyone and there is a link to a video of how to make it.
This week sees the end of our October Christmas so let's make it the best yet. The challenge is to make a gift or stocking filler and that means lots and lots of ideas so the hardest part will be where to start. It has been an enjoyable month and the Christmas projects were nice to see amidst the hundreds of Halloween things that I have seen this month though I did enjoy entering some of those as well. Thank you to Florence for thinking up the idea and for posting all the messages for the month on the blog.
I made this from an idea I saw on the Internet a long time ago-sorry I can't find the link but mine ended up quite different anyway.
I drew the circle shape around a dvd and things just evolved from there. Made in felt with the stitching in embroidery silk and as many sewing bits and bobs added as I could find room for.
The flowers are made by using a Marianne designs die cut and my Cuttlebug and a silver bead for the centres.
These are my stocking fillers. A little holder that I designed for one tea bag. The tea bags smell glorious as they are a spicy Christmas type mix from the London Tea Company. These have all been sent to my daughter who is selling them for the Cat Protection funds. I am missing the smell of them already so must make some more to hang on the tree at Christmas for people to take a pick.
Don't forget to go along to see what Florence, Sandra and Janet have made this week and say hello if you have time.
Love Chrissie xx
