I've Made Friday Week 91

 I hope you've all had a fantastic Christmas & New Year
I can't believe we are posting in 2014!

Christmas has been filled with fun and crafting.

I wanted to show you this that I bought on Etsy just before Christmas.
It is made by Eli from Eli's Store
Isn't it beautiful!
We can't really hang wreath's on our door as they are likely to be stolen.

On Christmas Eve me and Little Red made some soaps for
our hampers we were making for family.
They have lavender essential oils in them and dried lavender added to the top.

I also made quite a few Headband\Earwarmers

I also made a cowl for a friend.
She was getting a puppy for her Christmas Present hence the buttons

I made this using the Quick & Easy Button Up Cowl from
You can get it in Book or eBook format

I have also made a needle felted Rabbit
I think next time I need to concentrate on the shape more.
I followed a course from The Amazings
this is what it should of looked like:
Needle Felt a Furry Friend
The Amazings is a community of people who have a
lifetimes knowledge and use it to help you learn new skills
I've needle felted before but I learnt quite a few helpful hints and tips. 

Little Red got a clay making set for Christmas.
I always love to buy him things that we can do together.
He made a clay pot with a lid.
He loves to mess about with colours as you can tell.

I got a torso dummy for Christmas so I'm hoping you'll be seeing more of her soon.

The Holidays have been fun and interesting.
The washing machine broke and flooded the utility room, downstairs bathroom, toilet and back hallway.
The hoover was kept in there so it meant a new hoover and washing machine.
It wasn't a cost we wanted this time of year but I'm loving my new gadgets.

I've got loads more of my presents to show you 
but I'll leave them for another day.

I haven't read anything over Christmas so I'll hopefully get back to it next week.

  1. Love the wreath! Thanks for hosting and Happy New Year!


    1. You are more than welcome. Happy New Year! I hope you enjoy the blog in 2014 :-)

  2. Hi Sue, Happy New Year and thanks so much for hosting. It looks like you have been really busy being creative. Last night was my first time to sit down and knit since the start of the holidays. Take care and have a nice weekend.

    1. Julie,
      Happy New Year.
      You are more than welcome! I'll look forward to seeing what you are making :-).

  3. oooh I love the wreath and that last pattern with the beads...gorgeous!

    1. It's ace isn't it. My needle felting is no where near that good! It's not beads it has a metal running through it that catches the light but doesn't scratch. It's a fantastic yarn in loads of colours. I'm hopefully making a bag soon with it. I'm going to use the Figgi yarns chic for the main bag and then an overlay so you can dress it up for the evening.

  4. You've been busy. I'm checking out the scarf pattern, thanks for sharing.

    1. I love being busy, takes my mind off everything else - well that's my excuse anyway :-). I hope you enjoy the pattern!


I hope you enjoy the blog!
Thank you ever so much for commenting!
I love reading everything you put and I will try and reply but it just depends on my health.
Thanks Sue
