More Christmas makes...




This was what I was doing in between waiting for glue to dry from the Dahlia brooch makes.

Another present. Hope it will be liked. A bright burst of colour to wash away the grey days. Baby bear loves it and has put in a request for a blanket and cushion just like it for his bed! Something else to add to the list!.....and thinking about it, it sat perfectly in the spot where I took the piccie.....ah now look what i've done....yeap just put another one down on the list to make for me!
