Birds and Toadstools for our Christmas Tree

These days I have a basket that follows me around the house
and it's got yarns, pins, threads, needles, scissors, pens, blank Christmas
cards, my address book and the latest sewing and crochet projects
I'm working on.

I've been writing, crocheting and sewing whenever I've
had the chance and in the last couple of afternoons
I've been making these Christmas tree decorations.

And here they are: my handmade birds and toadstools!

I think they'll look lovely on our tree which, hopefully,
we'll get on Monday. Can't wait!
In the meantime it's back to my Christmas making basket
where a scarf is waiting to be finished and there are about a dozen
more cards I have to write.

Hope your Christmas makings are all going well!

Enjoy your weekend!



  1. Goodness ..... they are all so gorgeous!

    Wishing you and yours a magical Christmas~time

  2. I love your idea of having a basket to put things you are currently working on. I should have one as I tend to make a lot of mess when I'm doing something.

    The ornaments you made are really lovely and I'm sure it will look good on your tree.

    Take care Marion and have a great week!

  3. They are so beautiful! And so professionally made too, you are very skilled. I love the red and white fabric you've used. I have a similar basket which sits next to the sofa, full of all the many projects I am currently working on. x

  4. Your makes are gorgeous! They will look fabulous on your tree.
