dec the halls

I've been making Christmas decorations:

These are a bit of a new take on the scrappy trees I made a few years ago.
As you can see from the top picture, I've stitched strips of fabric, lace and ribbon onto a piece of cream wool blanket, then I've stuffed them and backed with a white linen canvas.
The little cone is similar to some I made a few years ago too. Also utilising the same old wool blanket.

I'll be getting some of these into my shop, when I can get a decent picture of the them. The light is shocking today and even photoshop doesn't seem to be able to work it's magic. Well, it could be photoshop, or it could be me. I'm inclined to think it's me as I'm not quite top notch at the moment.
After suffering a horrible cough, sore throat, wheezing, earache, and a headache, I took myself to the doctors to find that I have tracheitis. Without wanting to sound wimpy, I honestly can't remember a time when I felt as poorly as I do now.
I've still got tonnes to do though, so I'll still be working away here, but do excuse me if I'm absent from here for a little while.

Something that has been cheering me up a little is a new radio station I've found, called Smooth Christmas. It plays lots of Christmas tunes and no adverts - brilliant! It's only live until 27th December, but I rather suspect I might have had enough of it by then anyway!
