Christmas Merrymaking

Alice helping to make, or should I say taste the christmas cake.

I was lucky enough to come across some open weave wool fabric at the Woollen Mill in Creswick, I picked it up for a song. I thought it would be perfect to use for dry felting. My neighbour Sue, dyed some tops for me, thanks Sue, and I made some pencil rolls for my nephews and niece. My eldest Jim was impressed, so he got to work and felted one for his Kris Kringle present at school. His is the last picture and I love it so much, so much that I thought it was too good to give away, but I bit my lip and said nothing, because what would that be teaching him. I did make him promise to make make another one to keep, which he agreed to. Hope it finds a nice home.

And in the giving theme, if you can think of another use for this fabric, I give you one metre of it. even overseas. I have quite a few colours.

Those chubby hands in the dough are so adorable! And those cases are just lovely- what a great idea.
