Fun with Felt...

Holly has a thing for little felted owls so I found this great pattern here and made this one for her...
...and I made a few little hanging heart decorations too... 
...embellished with buttons and tiny felt hearts... 
...all sewn up in little kisses and blanket stitches.

Wish Tree

I found some lovely twiggy branches still holding
 on to a few crinkly leaves and some hips.  
I snipped, arranged and re-arranged them until I
 was happy with the shape of my Wish Tree...
...and visitors to the house wrote special wishes for 
Holly's 18th Birthday weekend, then hung them on the tree.

Birthday Wishes

It's hard to believe that my baby girl, Holly, will be 18 this weekend.
In the celebrations there will be a Birthday Wish Tree.

The idea is that everyone can write a special Birthday Wish for Holly and hang it on a Wish Tree.








I've been cutting heart shapes, ink-smudging and embellishing in a rainbow of colours for people to write on then hang on the tree.


I've yet to set off on my walk to find the perfect branches to make the tree...


but at least I've got the hearts strung and ready...



...and my wellies are de-spidered and looking forward to some mud-stomping in the woods...
