Snowflake... my pretty little Snowflake....

These have been ongoing for a while but at last I have finished

I used up some of my recycled jumpers/blankets felt to make Christmas decorations.... and I cut up a pretty crochet doily to make the snowflakes....
I don't really like chopping up peoples handiwork but it did have a stain and was 20c

they are all double sided so it won't matter which way they turn


we don't get snow at our place - ever - let alone at Christmas
.... but they do look pretty....


.... even on my rusty flying pigs....


A fun project to stitch in the evenings

I don't send many Christmas cards.. but I thought this year I would send a
Christmas ornament  - hand made  from recycled materials

sound like an aging wannabe tree hugging hippie? 

this native grass has finished flowering... I just love the berries it produces.. an amazing colour in the garden...
(they are closer to the blue colour)


... and that concludes November ....

wishing you all the best for the craziness of December

are you singing "Snowflake, my pretty little snowflake"??

I'm linking up with KerryAnne's linky at Shabby Art Boutique

WHAT!?!?!? You don't get snow??? Not any?? Think I am coming to live there! We don't usually get much here but we had quite a bit last year.....really hope we don't this year, it's fun to look at, and looks very pretty, but I hate having to go out if the roads are bad. I love your ornaments, thanks for the idea. Did your tracing number work?

Sunnybec said...

oops that should be tracking number...it's nearly my bed time xxx

I like the doily idea, can get those at discount stores around here, not good as doilies, but perfect for this idea.

From one aging hippie to another I love them and I love that they recycled and got to have a new life as something so pretty.

How in the world do you get so much done! Those are really darling, hon! I'd love to send you some snow, it's coming down right now. *G* But I have my Spring design that you made hanging up, reminding me it's temporary!

Pretty berries, and I love your rusty pigs!

Fiona, those snowflakes are just lovely...they will look so pretty hanging on your Christmas tree. And heck, it's great that if you don't get snow where you live, you can just make your own! LOL!
