merry & bright...


so it's getting to that time of year...

the umbrella collective show is just a week away and now that things are coming together, i'm starting to get a bit excited :) if you live in or around brisbane and would like me to send you an invitation, drop me an email to redfeltflower(at)gmail(dot)com and i'll pop one in the post, it's going to be a delightful day...

so i'm starting to think about my christmas crafting schedule and dipping into the december/januarys, definitely making the short list is the cranberry & pistachio white chocolate from the new donna...


notebook also has some sweet styling ideas and is reminding me about making bon bons this year...

but top of the pile is creating your perfect christmas by Antonia Swinson with projects by Sania Pell (isbn1845972554)


some lovely things here including the pattern for the brooch that i used to embellish my summer tote, they used it as a napkin ring that then becomes a gift for guests to wear home... there is a gorgeous table runner on linen that is also making the to-do list (can i just say how much i love linen right now... love it!)

last year i was thinking about "twelve days of christmas" tree ornaments, crazy (i know) but i haven't entirely given up the idea yet, we shall see...

and last but by no means least, "clay paper cloth" is on tomorrow (saturday) at the "numinbah valley school of the arts hall" on the nerang-murwillumbah road... i'm not able to go but miss j will be there with her beautiful work and a few goodies from red felt flower too...

right... think that's everything, happy weekend friends!

Cranberry & pistachio white chocolate sounds delicious! I'm yet to start any ornaments yet, either - or the advent calendar I had hoped to tackle... ;) Hope all your show preparations are going well. xo
