You would not believe the amount of snow that we have had and is still falling...not unusual for this part of the world but it was accompanied by thunder and lightning too! A new and quite surreal experience for me!
However it remained the perfect day for a morning of sledging followed by an afternoon of sewing. I was able to finish off all the christmas ornaments I'd signed up to swap! Which is a good feeling...now I can get them wrapped up and sent off to various parts of the world....another very good feeling too :)
The ones above are all for Louise Gale's Creative Colour Challenge Ornament Swap where we were to make three christmas ornaments using the colours gold, green and red....each one will go to a different home.
Certainly not the colour choices I would normally go for...but that's the whole fun of this challenge...stretching the old boundaries! I'm fairly happy with the finished trees even though the photos don't really capture the colours. There are more to see here over at Flickr.
This pink and green one is for the New Zealand Christmas Ornament Swap where the requirement was to make a handmade ornament and card.....I like the colour combo of this ornament and really wish I could be getting posted along with it...I've ALWAYS wanted to go to New Zealand!
Pop along to Creative Every Day too and see what everyone else has been upto!
Hope you are all keeping cosy :) X
