Just around the corner ...

... is Christmas!

The decorations are up and this year we decided to buy a real tree to sit on the window seat in the living room and put the not so real tree in the snug.  As always, the cats woke from the slumbers to investigate, pounce, play and destroy have fun with the artificial tree and all that endeavours to hang from it.  The photo is of Tilly, having climbed half way up to discover many, many new play things!

I took advantage of a free postage offer from Pocket and Pin (an online craft supply shop that has been in my favourites list for a long time) to purchase a roll of felt in "vintage colours".  It arrived beautifully wrapped and the colour of every sheet in delightful.  Itching to start to use it, I made this very cute Westie keyring using the "meadow" green felt.

Finally, with present wrapping under way, I put together these little packages to hold tiny gifts.  Simply cut from greaseproof paper, stitched with embroidery thread and finished with a button.  Perfect. star

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. The tree looks lovely - especially with a cute cat decorating it ;o) Love your little keyring and packaging idea!
