The Big Make...

The only making I have done so far today is...
'Christmas'!
Yep, the time has finally come for the festivities to really begin in the FB household.  After the regular cleaning and tidying, and a quick birthday party in the middle of the day, I cracked open the boxes of pretty things and we set to it.  Last year was spent surrounded by packing cases, so this year we really want it to feel like a proper Christmas.

We have our first real tree since the girls were born, and it's a beauty...


We actually have 4 trees, a white pop-up in the conservatory, a 3' pink tinsel one "decorated" by the girls and put in their room and a 3' green one of dear son's with a Doctor Who figure on the top!  Paper chains, tinsel and decorations are scattered throughout the rest of the house, and the scrappy wreath has been getting a daytime airing.  I'm starting to feel real excitement and sheer panic now!

I do have a couple of other makes to show you from the other evening, my Secret Santa gifts for a lady at work...




I hope she isn't too disappointed that it isn't a singing snowman or a willy-shaped soap!

  3. That willy comment just reminded me of a girl when I was on the ships who only got willies for Christmas one year - willy soaps, wind up willy, willy candle, etc. She thought it was funny at first but soon got a bit marked!

    Love your tree! Coming tree shopping in your neck of the woods next year!

    As for the gift, really, there were no willy shaped soaps in the shops? Guess those will have to do then ;o)

  12. I'm not feeling Christmassy yet. Santa in shorts doesn't do it for me, and I think my brother is as far uninterested in Christmas as I am interested! FB household is looking good!

  13. Sweet tree! I think I would prefer a Bill Bar to a willy shaped soap. It's all in the nomenclature.

  15. This felt stuff gets everywhere - very nice brooch! We did our tree this weekend too so must post picture (as soon as I tidy up around it!) The idea of four really scares me!! Annabelle x

  16. Yes I'm with Sarah - was thinking a stuffed one in pink felt rather than needle felted - though that might be funny to make in the presence on 'male members' of the family!

    Would prefer your makes though anyday!
