We woke this morning to dark overcast skies and rain, a good day to get some housework done. I did get a little carried away with the woodland creatures so coat hangers and a little owl have been added to the pile.
My husband paints the hangers for me, two coats and then using a little sand paper strip some back before finishing off with a stamp and a little wax.
The stamp used was from a set of Cath Kidston stamps that are well loved and used a lot. They have been painted in a beautiful shade of green that the light is not showing and finished with a strip of polka dot fabric.
The owl is the perfect addition to the pile, a nursery should always have toys made with love.
I have also made a start on the children's slippers using Crochet at Play book.
Beastie feet for the boys and glass slippers for the girls.
The glass slippers are taking a little working out. I am not using the correct yarn and I also need to adjust the sizes for the perfect Princess fit. I am having fun with the process, but it is taking some time to get it right. They will make a lovely addition to their Christmas stockings. I love this time of year when my Christmas crafting kicks in and I like the idea of me been one of Santa's little helpers. Have you made a start on your Christmas crafting?
See you soon.
