Christmas flower
Thoughts: I always remember my mother getting me and my sisters a christmas dress.
When my girls were growing up I did the same.
As a grandma, I enjoy making things for my granddaughters.
This year I am working on some holiday skirts.
and searching for a matching cardigan.
Things: I hope this little poinsettia pin will add the perfect touch.
It is made from white wool felt.
The petals have a small sewn tuck up the center.
Each petal hand sewn on.
The middle is wool, stuffed and gathered to make the center with some modge podge and glitter to give it a sparkly touch.

(2 out of 3 skirts finished,I'll post them soon)


  1. Cute, cute, cute! I LOVE the color.

  2. Well, someone gave you the correct name, you are a Joy! And I can also say that I left your blog happier than when I came. Your blog is a true delight! Enjoy your day! Twyla

  3. They look like a beautiful, fondant flower. I hope the little ones don't pop them off and try to eat them.-gina
