Christmas Carol


Thanks for all your lovely comments yesterday. You certainly seemed to love the shaped easel. I made it on Tuesday and it was one of the first cards I sold yesterday at the fair. It was my best ever fair, which was fantastic so I need to get busy as I have 6 fairs in November.  By the time we got home and put everything away and made some soup I was rather tired so didn't get round to commenting so will try to catch up a bit today.

That countdown clock is alarming me slightly as I still have Christmas cards to make, despite making them all year round. I tried colouring this cutie to make it look more like fur, quite successful I thought. I have been admiring the Dee's trees for a while and just had to buy one, very useful to have a smaller tree though I think now I would like the bigger one to match too.
