It Can Never Be Just One ..

Hello my dear friends,

as so many times before I can't just can't seem to work on one project at any one time.
 I must have at least six different creations that I am working on these days. I start one and then I think of something else and start that one too and so on. One good thing is that I won't get bored in the near future for sure and I hopefully will have several creations to share with all you lovely blogger soon.

If I am not working on a new pincushion ...

 ~ which I am and I am finally using this, I am working on a new nest.
I am not only working on my pink sari silk nests I told you about a little while ago ...

... but I am also working on this one as well. It is a pale cream nest with many different yellow roses.

With the heat still here every day and it almost being 40 C with humidity outside yesterday,  you wouldn't believe what I have been thinking of ... you guessed it ... Wintertime , snow falling, Christmas and more nests!

I had bought another very lovely sari silk ribbon in the most pretty shade of green which was called 'Dried Rose Leaves' several months ago with a Christmas nest in mind.  I had started to work on choosing which  flower I wanted to create and when I found the 'Christmas Rose' I just knew that it had to be this one ~ it is such a beautiful blossom and it was perfect. My first attempt to recreate it or rather my version of it didn't work out the way I wanted it to but then the second try-out turned out much better. I created a lovely sparkly, frost kissed little blossom that would be perfect for my Christmas/ Winter nest creation.

And these are my little Christmas roses.
Now all that is left to do is make this creation 'come to life' but that won't be for a little while yet.

But there is more that I am working on right now.

I am still working on my fabric sweet pea design as well these days.

It is slowly coming together the way I hoped it would and I am very happy with it so far.

So you can see my dear friends, I am one little busy bee here at Todolwen these days and I doubt that that will end very soon but that is a good thing in my book. I just love being busy and creative just like so many of you do too.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today here at Todolwen ~ it is always so nice when you do!

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
