Puppy Love.

Just a very quick post, as I still have 36 Christmas cards to make!!
I have made 46 Christmas cards for the Care Home 
and a new set of greetings cards, about 70!!

I know I should have started them ages ago, but I
got into my Needle Felting. Now an addiction!!

This photo is my latest puppy but the photo isn't
very good.
He had his first outing at the craft Fair at The Flegg School
in Martham, Norfolk. He now has a new home!!


I was going to do another Craft Fair last Saturday
but it was cancelled.

So I want to get my cards finished and posted.
Then I can get my Craft Room tidy again!!
Then I can get the tree and decorations up.

Phew!! Just saying what I have to do, makes me
feel knackered!!

So thank you for your lovely messages on my last post.
I just love to read them.

Hope you are all Boosted and now feel safer.
Big hugs,
Carol

Twit a Twoo!!!

Well I  hold my hand up, I am guilty and totally
addicted to Needle Felting.
I am selling them so quickly, that I am tied to 
my desk, to keep up with them going! 


I have been away for a few days, down into 
West Sussex. 
We met up with friends and then had my Son's 
Wedding Celebration to go to. It was a fun
day and our Daughter-in-law looked stunning. 
The next day we met up with another friend
and delivered 2 Needle Felted animals she wanted.
They are gifts for Christmas.
The following day we went to stay with my sister
and husband, that I hadn't seen for 10 years!!
It was so lovely to spend some time together, as she had 
two Strokes a couple of months ago. 

Then on return home, we had to have our Flu Jabs.
Then on Sunday a Craft Fayre to go to. 
We nearly sold out of the N F animals and my
big fabric baubles were flying out!
We sold a lot and got more money there, than all the 
other Craft Fayres we had done added together!!
 I have a few more to do, so the charity I support
will have some money this year.

So thank you for my lovely messages you leave me.
They are very uplifting. 
Hope you haven't got bored with my rambling.
Love and hugs
Carol

Pat's Pal!

Sorry I haven't done a post for ages!!

I have been keeping up with orders for my 
Needle Felting animals. 
Also I have been to a few Craft Fairs too. 

I was contacted by a friend, asking me to 
make her a dog like her own puppy. 
She e-mailed a photo of her dog,
a Dachshund, so I could see the colour.



So this is my make and she loved it, thankfully!
I am still very new to this craft but it's very
addictive and I am loving it.  


At another Craft Fair, a lady asked me to make 
her a black cat. So I finished it yesterday and delivered 
it this morning.  
My Gnomes are also going well!! 

I must find some time to make my Christmas cards!
Thank you for popping into my blog and leaving
me such lovely messages. They are always
 read and appreciated. 

Big hugs,
Carol

A Christmas Scene

Well this has taken 5 days to do!!
From this photo, a wooden village scene, that I 
bought 2 Christmases ago from Hobbycraft,
to the photos below!!


I painted it with Gesso first and had to leave it to dry.
Then I did one coat of grey Acrylic paint where I wanted it
 and had to leave that to dry.
I then painted parts of the windows, brickwork and 
part of the church. with Paper Artsy Chalk Acrylic paint
colour Antarctic.
Then had to let it dry!!


Then I decided the grey was too dark. So I painted over it 
with a lighter shade. That needed two coats and of course,
drying time between coats!!


Then a second coat of the Antarctic paint. 
Then some gold paint
on the clock face and the lanterns.
I used a spatula to spread some white paste, onto 
the 'floors', the roofs and trees, as snow and 
topped it with some glitter.
Put the batteries in and turned the lights on and then
turned the key for the Christmas song played 
and the centre piece rotating!!

Phew!! Hope you are still awake!! 
Sold it straight away, when I sent a text 
 photo of it to friends and family. 
 

So I will be delivering it to it's new owner soon.
 
Hope you have enjoyed the few beautiful days
we have had this week.
Thank you for your lovely messages on
my last post, also the ideas for whiskers for
my dogs and cats!! I have used Pauline's at
Crafting at Cotnob idea first. 
I used to make jewellery and had a rummage and
found a whole real of beading thread!! 
It worked out fine, as I could also make it 
black using a Permanent Marker Pen.
So thank you for all your ideas and will try 
out the others too.
Stay safe.
Big hugs,
Carol

Foxy

    A friend asked me if I could make a Fox, with my 
    Needle Felting, as a gift for a member of her family. 

As I haven't been doing this for long, I said I would have a go.
So this is my result!!

   She has only seen a photo of him and said he was gorgeous.    
I just need to find something I can use for his 
black whiskers. Cotton is too floppy, even the thick one I had.

All ideas welcome!!
           
 

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last post.
They were all read and treasured.
I will visit your blogs and leave a message for you.

The cat in the window, my last post, got me another
commission. This time a Dachshund Dog!!

I already have a big Christmas project ready 
for my next post!! 
I know I don't have another one ready very often!!

Stay safe. 
Big hugs,
Carol

Sitting in the Window!!

A very quick post tonight.

Another Needle Felting project. 
Really enjoyed doing this one and stretched my brain, a lot!!


This is my first kitty and took a bit of time, to work
out how much body to do! 
I just took out the glass from this Deep Box Frame,
6 inch square, from Hobbycraft.
Just made enough body so she could sit on the frame.
Flowers from Hobbycraft and leaves I made with air dry clay.

Thank you for popping in and hope you have a good
weekend. Thanks for the lovely messages you leave me.
Much appreciated and will visit you too.
Hubby's Birthday on Sunday. Not doing anything special.
Stay safe.
Big hugs,
Carol

Going Boating!!

Where has our Summer gone?!!
Even the heating came on a couple of nights.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post.
I do love reading them and they are much appreciated.


This little lad is another LOTV stamps, that has been around 
for ages but still used a lot.

I now have a couple of Craft Fairs booked.
So nice to do one, but as it is a new venue, I don't
expect to sell much, as it's only been there once before.

There has been a lot of advertising, which is the most 
important thing to do but doesn't always work.

Have a lovely weekend.
Big hugs,
Carol
