So much to make.

I spent a lovely couple of hours reading this book there's loads of lovely things to make in it and so easy,


these baubles are very vintagy, covered in scraps of fabric,


bits of fabric made into brooches or pinned on shoes




and I love fairies of any description,



I'll have to trawl the charity shops for old glass decanters, these will look lovely on the christmas table with the candles lit.



I asked my sister if I could have a look through her "tweed" stash


so I could make a brooch to go on a brown cardigan santa is bringing me!


I realy enjoyed Kirsties handmade home last night the little robin was lovely and didn't the girls do well taking third place?


I might just have to put a felting kit on my christmas list  that's already far longer than it should be!!

Hello!
I have had my eye on that book for a while - it's nice to see glimpse of it, and to hear about it from your perspective. I think I will be adding it to my wishlist!
Thanks so much for calling in Down the Lane, it's lovely to meet you,
