Creative Christmas

I wish I had more time to do things this christmas. I had a few wishes- I wanted to sew... a wanted to make some sketch books and draw a little...

I have a feeling it is always the same every year- there is that feeling of not quite completed. This year I had an excuse but it still doesn't make me feel any better!!

Those Antlers my brother found and gave me made a great table decoration... spruced up with some tinsel and baubles.... I bet those antlers never saw that coming!!

My sister was kind enough to send me hundreds of little finger puppets for my little monster. He loves them... she also gave me the idea to use them as a mobile. I hung them on an octopus thing from Ikea (what on earth is it for? Anyone??) and used scraps of material to hang them. He just loves it and every time I hang it up on the door frame and we walk through it he bounces about and giggles. Later when he is older I can cut off the strings and he has the puppets again... and I have some odd Ikea octopus.

Poor little christmas Grinch!! I sewed a whole oufit. Not only the hat. Looks great!! I even made a little fluffly white trim on the collar. I just don't have any complete photos... rats. The outfit it actually quite snuggly warm so it wasn't just a grinch for christmas!!

I believe the octopus thing is a portable clothes dryer! I have a slightly different one from Ikea last year.
