Christmas Inchies

It's been a busy few of months, lots of making and lots of craft fair bookings!
The next few fairs will all be Christmas ones and so the makes have been Christmas inspired. 
Firstly Inchies, so far I have worked on three different colour themes.
Red, Cream and Green
always a traditional look
with flying reindeer's in a heart, 
love this little birdhouse, 
can you see I added in some little robins eggs 
 I couldn't resist the vintage style sleigh
embellished with sparkling crystals, 
a musical heart, a golden star, candy canes
what more could you want!

Next is 'White Christmas' always a wonderful theme.... 

with little touches of silver sparkle and colour for that Christmas magic.....

 a silver bird a berry wreath, a warm scarf, candy canes
 a button heart for a little love.....and some jingle bells
a Christmas wreath an angel, 
a snowman stamp, and a little robin ...

'Winter Wonderland'
these are my favourite set they have a sort of subtle vintage look to them with the white and aqua base, 

the vintage style bells ,
coral pink ribbon and pink bead accents.

all three sets will adorn my stall for a truly festive look......

Feeling quite pleased to have finished my blanket
 This is my first joined blocks blanket. I like how it has turned out
 and the yarn was lovely to work with.
I used Drops Delight in colours:  08, 09,10,& 11 
two balls of each. Joined and edged with Drops Fable in black 4 balls
The pattern is free on Ravelry. 
 It's so cosy! 
cuddled up on the sofa in it now as as I write :)

It was such a busy day that I didn't take as many photos as I should have
the ladies all worked hard and enjoyed the day very much,  their inchies were all beautiful and if I can manage to get any more pictures to show more close ups I will add them to the post.

It's so lovely to see them all so pleased and proud of their framed Works of Art!

Mary's Inchie's

I was commissioned to do a very special set of Inchies as a Christmas gift to a much loved Lady and Nana called Mary who was 91 years old.
 Her Granddaughter Elaine wanted to show how much she loved her and meant to her, she told me a little bit about Mary and the little things she treasured and enjoyed

such as flowers,  reading books and enjoying rides out in the car,

a loving, caring person... she loved sweets and cakes too!

I tried to capture as much as I could into each little inch

in vibrant pinks and purples,  colours she liked.....

I was so sad to hear the news that Mary died on new years day :(
It's sad to loose a loved one at any time, but I always feel it must be especially sad when it's over the festive season, when everyone around is celebrating and being merry.
She is sorely missed by all her family.
I hope the little set of Inchies will help as a 
 little tribute to her memory.
 R.I.P. Mary x
