Unfortunately, because I was working so hard on my latest commission, I only got as far as making two pictures and because the first one I did took me about two hours (I still hadn't received my machine manual in English at that point) I decided that maybe next year, if I start about Easter, I can get them done in time. On top of that, I couldn't get my hands on any of those cards with a little window in them for adding your own picture!!!
So instead, I will show you what I did manage to get done and wish everyone a wonderful Christmas filled with love and warmth and hope Santa brings you something nice from your Christmas list!!!
These are my two finished 'projects'. I think I was a little over ambitious with my first attempt as I had to change the colours back and forth 20 times!!! Both pictures are done on wool felt and are approx 10 x 10 centimetres in size! (there is a mistake in the first picture where my sewing needle got bent but carried on going.....but I'll not point it out to you!!)
I showed this one to my friend who said "I love the birds!" I thought "Birds? What birds?" and then I saw them!!!
Thank you for visiting!
The white tree/birds on the green is so effective!ReplyDelete

I think you can get window cards here - if you like I'll have a look for you?

I will pass on Cooper's message to Kara...but isn't he now smitten with another little Chihuahua? ;)
Those are fabulous! And even if they're not ready to be this year's Christmas cards, I think that just means you're getting a head start on next years, right? ;)ReplyDelete
LOL that's a great idea jSarie! Except that knowing me, I'll put these away and not remember where I put them next year!Delete
Thanks very much!
