Time is ticking on by and my plans for a handmade Christmas are making really slow progress. I've ticked a few off my list, I printed off these beauties to make my list making a little easier. To take some of the pressure off (self induced pressure of course!) I've taken part in some "online handmade buying" from Felt, a New Zealand handmade website, there are some amazing handmade items for sale there.
I put the finishing touches on this cushion for a special person on my list. Each "petal" is in fact a small crocheted flower, I didn't bother counting them, there are lots! The leaves are cut from a tweedy woollen skirt, from a local thrift store, and the backing is more of the woollen blanket I used here.
Have you made any Christmas presents yet? Leaving it to the last minute? I'll be right there with you if that's the case - ah best laid plans eh?
