Christmas ornaments for the tree

I have made 4 now I would have liked to do more but christmas is in 2 days

this is how they look on the tree.

Finally I have more christmas stockings done for the tree.  I have been without internet for the last 10 days as it seemed to take forever to get the internet back on.  So I thought I would catch up on some sewing. I wanted to share some photos with you.  Hope you like them

Update of Teddy Bear

Good Morning all,

I just wanted to share a couple more photo's with you she is still not finished she has no ears, I was working on her until very late last night and would love her to be finished but I have miss placed the mahair I was using and somehow forgot to cut out her ears.  So until I find it she will he half finished. I do love the way she sits with her head to the side.

  I have this peicce of old lace that I handpainted a couple of years ago sitting around her and I love the way it looks and she also has some lace around her head.  And she has no name at the moment! But overall I am so happy with my second bair I am still a beginner but inproving with everyone I do. I hope I can keep inproving as I would like to sell my bears & dolls together! Let me know what you think

Hello all,

I will have some more on my selling blog in the coming weeks for christmas, my hand is a lot better now it really makes you realise I so wanted to work on them but the paint was to bad.  I was making afternoon tea for my boys and was making them waffles and burnt my hand on the waffle iron.
