Cockerpoo!!

I know I haven't posted for a while but I have been
making cards for the care home. 

I also forgot I had this little lady, 
waiting to be on my blog!!

So here she is.


As you can see, her coat is soft curls as fur.
She is already boxed, to be taken to my 
first Craft Fair, in Lowestoft Town, next month.


So I will now be off to visit your blogs and 
leave you a message too.

I love reading your messages and thank you 
so much, for taking the time to visit my blog.

Stay safe and keep well.
Big hugs,
Carol

Red Is Here!!

I loved the messages on my last post.
Some made me really laugh.

As promised, here is the Red Squirrel. 


I find that Needle Felting is very  therapeutic, but
the needles are very sharp! 
He is sold already. 


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog
and leave me such lovely messages.
I have now gone back to your blogs and left 
you some messages.

Big hugs,

Squirrel Nutkin

Welcome to 2022!
My first make for this year, finished it yesterday.
Haven't named it yet, as I don't know if it's a boy or girl!!


I have a friend who has seen a picture of it, 
asking me to make her a Red Squirrel. 
So I will have to look at some live ones, as to get it right. 


 I found the double Acorn case a few months ago.
So I made the seeds with a piece of wool. 
So I will have to go hunting for more Acorns!!

I hope that this year is better than the last couple!!
Hopefully, most people that have as yet not had
any Vaccines, will think again and get them.

Stay safe and keep well.
Thank you for finding the time to pop into my blog 
and for leaving your kind messages. Much loved!
Big hugs,
Carol

Simply Round.

I am still trying to use stamps, that I have had for years.
The wreath image, is one that I have only used a couple of times.
  I added some extra leaves, using old, used Cardio stamps.


I used Copics pens for the berries and some
water colour fine line pens, to colour the fine lines.
I added some Glossy Accents on the berries. 

The background is from an old paper pad. 
I put drops of gold Stickles on the stars.

Well only a few days to go, for the man 
with the red hat, does his rounds!! 

We only have to do our weekly shop, with
a few extras!  We are lucky, that if we
forget something, we are only a 4 minute
walk to the big Tesco.

So we are just then going to  stay in safe.
All the programs we want to watch, 
we have set to record. 
 I have got lots of wool, so I can do a bit
of Needle Felting. I really want to make a squirrel.

Thank you for taking the time to read and 
comment on my post. They are much appreciated.

So stay safe and keep well.
Big hugs,

It's Christmas!!!

 

I finely finished making my family and friends cards,
all 51 of them, yesterday. I posted half of them on
Wednesday, until I ran out of stamps.

This is one of them, using the stamps (not postage ones!!)
I had with a magazine, that I have a subscription with.


I didn't photo the other cards, as I was just trying to get them done.
My craft room looked like a bomb site and now it's back to
my calming little haven. 
Got the Christmas tree up but only the lights on, so tomorrow 
I will dress it.

Hope you are all having, or had your booster jab.
Stay safe and keep well.

Thank you all for your lovely messages on my last post.
I love to read them and then I can pop in your posts too.

Big hugs,

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
