Christmas Crafts

OK, I know it's not even Halloween yet, but my talented Mum has already started making lovely felt decorations to sell at craft fairs! She's working on loads more hair ornaments too!

Here are a couple of pictures to give a taster of things to come. They're just quickie mobile shots but I'll get some more images soon.

Carole and I are working on our Christmas card designs and Hazel is planning some surprises!

Hazel's been making plant themed 'shrinkle' badges and we've been sewing some lovely bags.

Hope to see you all at the event!
