Our Christmas this year was calm, easy going and special. It is lovely to have a drama free Christmas :-)
What was most special about this Christmas was all the handmade gifts from my daughters. I am always amazed by their creativity and out-of-the box thinking. I hope you do not mind me sharing with you. Above Auberne` made for Chloe a Merlin doll from the BBC Merlin. He is all hand stitched with his own book. His clothes even come off. Here is the pattern she used.
I loved my gifts, crocheted owl pin (Here is a link to the owl pattern ) from Chloe and crochet fingerless gloves from Auberne`.
Chloe made her dad, Von Gherkin the Third, pickle in a jar :-p
Chloe sewed her sister a T.A.R.D.I.S and Tottoro.
For their grandmother Auberne` made her a Christmas pudding with needle felted berries and Chloe crocheted a robin pin!!
Auberne` created David, Twisty the Pretzel! I love the way she add beads for the salt. The girls always give David and I a his/her gift. What made me smile the most is they did not know if I wanted a glittered mustache or not. So I had my choice. I have chosen to have one on each side so I can express if I feel glittery or not ;-)
Thank you for letting me share the gifts the girls made. I am hoping to inspire them to open their shop again and make some items to sell. Well done girls oxox
