Over the last couple of days it has finally dawned on me just how close we are getting to the end of the year and therefore to Christmas! Feeling slightly panicked I have started making a flock of felt bird decorations for our shop and am loving the way each 'grows' a personality once the sequin and bead details have been stitched on. In these colours, they won't have to be packed away after Christmas but can flutter away to a door handle or chirp together as part of a pretty mobile.
It was only after I had taken the photo above that I realised how similar the colours were to the mondocherry artwork that lives in my daughter's room. Isn't it funny how certain colour combinations stick in your mind?
