Still working but fighting flu!

Here are 2 pics from my studio taken last week. The table is full of elves that are done and flower fairies/elves (haven't decided!)  that aren't. The felt snowmen, cat and mouse are up at ebay as are the 2 boy elves. The owl on the pumpkin isn't quite finished. The owl needs to be attached to the pumpkin. He's pinned to it now. There's even more that didn't get finished for the holidays. I'm fighting the flu and I'm not felling like I'm winning :)

This is a pile of fabric and supplies to be put away but I wanted to show off my old tree skirt. I've added something with the year worked on it for every year I've been married. There's tatting, patchwork, felt things, embroidery, beads, crochet, and even paper crafts. The angel in the middle of the picture is a cheater. I cut her out from Christmas fabric then stitched her to felt and added the heart she holds. There are a few quicky ones when I didn't have time for much. Over the years I wished I'd made it using a solid color instead of gingham but when I got married gingham and eyelet were pretty popular. I even thought about removing everything and putting it on a new skirt but after all this time I think it would ruin the memory. Besides the tree is always done in red, white, and green and it has low branches so the skirt doesn't show much. It's more the memories I get when I get out out and put it away that make me happy!

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
