Its not been the best month for stitching having been plagued with health problems again... oh the problems of getting old!!! Still I do have something to share.

I wanted to try the glitter felt as background for some Christmas decorations and bought some different coloured pieces to play with., because of the bonding it is firmer than the just wool felt and that makes it ideal  to mount my designs on.
 I am working on several bird designs and managed to get three finished. First up the gold one.This is a bird shape I have used many times but have added more layers and stitching this time, and yes I will repeat this one, possibly in other colours too.

 For the next one  I wanted a truly Christmas look, so decided on the English robin, a simple design  and just highlighted the bird with some tiny red beads. The green glitter felt is a little brighter than the photo shows.
 I used these birds on another piece, looking for gift ideas I had found a felt container to store EarPods in, made simply with two circles of felt one of which had been cut in two. (The felt circle is four and a half inches across) This will be part of Rachel's birthday gift, I will add a gift card for one of her favourite stores.

Its been too long since I worked on the computer, I don't seem to be able to make the photos sit where I want!!!

The third bird is on a lovely deep blue background, as you can see I got a little carried away and attempted a second variation of this one, however I think I like the original one with the upturned tail best.

Etui for Eve stitching 
I had completed the next kite flying mouse before I was unwell, I am planning to add a little hedgehog holding onto the end of the string to stop the mouse flying away. I think I have collected so many of these delightful animals, I wonder if there will be room for them all.

Till next time....... thank you for the comments left on the blog and the emails sent direct to me,  its good to hear from friends.
