We've been busy, busy, doing lots of Christmas crafting around here lately. Here are some of the projects we've been working on…
weaving wreaths with some branches we cut in the woods (these ones made by Loane and my Mum who was visiting us last week)
I wove a little basket to hold some goodies...
I used one of the wreaths to hang some gingerbread that the girls made
the girls have been cutting paper snowflakes and I hung some around our winter fairy
and decorated our windows with them
the girls and I have been making some rose windows (thanks to this book) as gifts to send to the grandparents
the girls sewed this heart and gingerbread garland out of pieces of wool felt and fabric scraps
I've been knitting some little Tomten (using this pattern) and Santa hats (using another sweet pattern by Linda)
I've also been experimenting dyeing some of our wool
I'm happy with the results, the colours are very soft (I will be using some for my Christmas gifts)
and last but not least, some little leg warmers just off the needles for Sacha using some very fun self-striping yarn from Biscotte&Cie (their colours are great, especially for children).
Happy crafting on!
