Try Again

As you can perhaps see from my last (first!) post it's been a while since I started this blog! I have recently enjoyed following others blogs so I thought I'd try again! The only birthday card I have ready is for someone who may look on here so I thought instead, I'd introduce you to some of my most treasured hand crafted items.
These little chaps were made by my Mum - I can't date them exactly but they must be at least 20 years old and even now I have more modern decorations these are still my favourite Christmas item and take pride of place every year.
Their bodies, arms & legs are pipe cleaners covered in festive material scraps, hands feet, & hats are felt, I'm not sure the exact composition of the heads but I have seen them in craft shops. Their faces were hand drawn and I like that each has a different expression.

I'm still not sure how often I will be able to blog but hope to be back again in less than 10 months!
