Anyway, my first project is something that I was inspired to make after seeing similar designs on Pinterest. I used my Nestability circles to cut out the wreath from sparkly white felt, and that left me with the bauble. I blanket stitched the layers together with a little stuffing in the middle for padding and added thin white ribbon hanging loops. The holly and berries are die cut with Marianne Design die LR0127 and then I've added the stitches to the leaves and little beads to the berries before sewing and gluing them to the wreath and bauble.
I was looking at my blog reading list this morning (first time in days so I haven't gone back too far) and saw that Crafty Creations Challenge is to 'take two' - I hope that my two Christmas decorations will fit the theme for them.

I'm off to the opticians this afternoon so hope the weather clears up before I leave, I hate driving in the rain. Fingers crossed I don't need all 3 prescriptions renewing .. .. I would like some pennies left for craft goodies this month!
