I am slowly starting to feel a bit better. My cold/flu isn't gone just yet but it's not too bad anymore and I am so happy because I just hate feeling unwell, but then who doesn't? Thank you all for your well wishes, they really helped me feel better!
These past few days I have been crafting a little and I would like to share my 'newest' creation with you today. It is actually one of my older creations with a wintry twist ~ my little felted nests!
I really love my little nests ~ which is a free tutorial for all you lovely bloggers ~ so I decided to make a few new ones but gave them a wintry glisten for the season. I am really pleased with the way they have turned out especially because it gave me a chance to use my newest yarn/wool I purchased from Martha Stewart amongst a lot of other very beautiful yarns that I had bought in Europe years ago but never used.
So, why not scroll down and take a look and I hope you like what you see!
I love the different textures of the beautiful yarns and the effect they give!
And these are my wintry little nests ...
They are all a little bit different from each other.
To paint the eggs I used Martha's newest paints with a pearl effect ...
and a tiny touch of sparkly glitter.
I love the look of these nests, it's almost like they are built from frost and ice!
Why not try and make one of these yourself? They would be a beautiful decoration for your Christmas tree, or Christmas display and they are great little gifts!
Last but not least ...
this was my backyard on Thursday ~ very green and warm.
We almost had a record temperature for December here!
And this is my backyard this morning ...
hopefully this won't be the last of the white beautiful flakes!
