First signs

If you've been following me for a while, you know that I love Christmas. So this time of the year I usually feel some Christmas crafting coming on. 

I follow a Russian blog and love everything this talented lady produces. She has a free tutorial for these lovely mushrooms; you can find it here. I've used Google Translate as the blog is in Russian, but the pictures are really all you need. 

I've also tried my hands on making acorns; the small ones were very fiddly so I tried to make it a bit bigger but I think now it's too big. I'll try to make a medium sized one next time. 

Next I made this apple. I've sewn all the seams by machine, but I guess it could also be done by hand. I've enjoyed the embroidery as well. 

I think these little ornaments will look lovely on a Christmas tree or as a decoration on a gift.

We've already had the first snow flurry the other day, so winter is definitely in the air and the count down to Christmas isn't far off.
