Making headway...

Hooray, they're finished! For the last couple of weeks, I have been slowly making these little embellishments for some Christmas cards ... amongst other things, of course.

I've just got to print some cards and they're done! Felt courtesy of Sarah. I have just placed another order with her for some felt squares that I will be adding into a sewing box for my 3 nieces for Christmas, along with wool and knitting needles.

When I was young, I had 2 great-aunts who excelled in the Gentle Arts and who, I guess, instilled in me a love of domestic creativity. They were called Lily and Flossie and in their honour, I have named this pair after them! So, I am trying to pass on their legacy to the young ladies in my family! Not having daughters myself, I will try and pass on this appreciation to my nieces. Hope they like it! I do have another son who is now 11 and showing a tiny bit of interest in learning how to cook, so maybe I can pass something on to him too...

PS. don't these 2 look good with my new pointsettia?


  1. such sweet doglets, as my husband would say. I am sure your nieces will be delighted! The felt circles are gorgeous. Yet again I say to myself that I must learn to sew...maybe next year?

  2. Lovely snowflakes - I've done something similar but didn't think to do circles as backing. Yours look beautiful!

  3. I think that Barney has a VERY mischievous look there!
    Thank you so much for your kind comment. It made my day.
