My Little Christmas Gifts ...

Hello my dear friends,

unfortunately I just wasn't able to find the time to share this as I had first though I would. I have just been quite busy with all sorts and of course with Christmas this past week. But today I took the time and put everything else aside for a little bit so I could write this post.

 Today I am sharing the little gift I had made for some of my friends.
It turned out to be a sweet little creation and I am so happy with the way they came together in the end. As so many times before I had my doubts how they would turn out and if the would look like the way I had them pictured it in my mind. At first I wasn't too happy but but once I added that last little thing, they were just right in my eyes!

I had already shared how I had started to make my little gifts with you earlier this month.

I embroidered seam binding roses ...

... onto white 'felted' wool felt.

Once my creation were finished, the were quickly all wrapped up in white tissue paper and ... 

... off they went on their merry way to their new homes.

OK, not that fast ... there is a between the last two photographs and this is it ...

... today I am finally going to share my little Christmas gifts that I had made with you. 
They became Christmas tree ornaments and I named them ...

 ' Roses At Christmas'.

A lovely white rose with little green leaves of felt,
golden thread and very neat golden jingle bells made each one the lovely creation it is.

All in all, I made seven of them ...

... and each one just as pretty as the other and each one just a little different than the other.
The one thing they all have in common though is, that they were all made with from the heart with much love too. 

I already can't wait to think of what I am going to make for next Christmas. I also think that I am going to add a few more names to my Christmas list, I just love to send little gifts out at Christmas time.

Well, that's all for today. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with friends and family and much love and laughter.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me here today 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.
