Over the past few weeks I have been busy with a couple of commissions and finalising a new idea for Christmas tree decorations. I’m reserving the commissions for a post of their own because they took me so long that they deserve a gold plaque, never mind their own post!
I know it seems too early to be talking about Christmas but it will be here before we know it and last year it totally caught me off guard so, like all good girl guides, this year I’m being prepared…besides we have a mega craft fair two weeks before Christmas and we don’t want to be embarrassed by a lack of stock.
The christmas tree decorations started life months ago now as a rough idea for bodies and I’ve had these embroidered bodies lying around in my sewing box all summer. With the closing in nights it was time to finish the job. They are now a mixture of felt bodies and polymer clay heads, hands and feet. I think the picture speaks for itself.
At this stage I have 18 of these delightful little girls. Each one is different. I just need to think of a name.
