I also swaps Dorset Buttons with Jinann from Virginia. I think my Christmas Dorset Buttons are absolutely beautiful. Thank you very much Jinann for creating them for me.
I have fallen in love with creating Dorset Buttons. The top one I called a "Snowflake Crosswheel". The two larger "White Dorset Buttons" are Singleton with my touch added. I especially lile the pink flower one. I used a Woven Picot Open and Closed stitch to create them. It is the first time I have ever used this stitch and I really loved the look of it. I put a pink pearl bead in the center which I think really make it special. The small pink Dorset Button one is called a Star Shirtwaist. This is my first attempt and I found it a bit more difficult. I am going to have to perfect this technique.
I also created these Dorset Buttons too. All three were given as gifts.
I have been admiring some Art Envelope on Stitchin Fingers so I decided to try and make a Christmas Art Envelope too. This is a close up of a Poinsettia with beads.
This is a photo of the inside of the Christmas Art Envelope.
This photo shows the whole front of the "Christmas Art Envelope". I really enjoyed making it. It went to my new friend Heloisa in Brazil.
I called this needle felted Post Card in red, "Christmas Dance". I added lots of snowflakes with beads and metallic threads.
Another needle felted Post Card in Pink, also called "Christmas Dance"! I also added more snowflakes beads and lovely metallic threads to make it sparkle. I used all lovely Icelandic Wools on them both.
I made this Silk Ribbon Christmas Post Card for us. It symbolizes what a "Wonderful, Precious, and Cherished Life I have with My Sweetie".
Our Christmas Tree this year. We decided to put it in the corner this year to give us more room for family to gather about. It is decorated with hand blow and painted German Blue Ornaments along with special ornaments made by my friends.
Today the sun is shining in Michigan. At the beginning of the week I could not even see the fence from the front window we were having such an dreadful snow blizzard. We got 14 inches of snow. Thanks goodness some of it has melted from the sun and rain. vbg
I feel very fortunate to have met so many wonderful friends blogging. To me Friends are Like Flowers. Each could stand alone on it own beauty. But group together each enhances the beauty of the other.
My Sweetie and I would like to wish everyone a Very Merry and Blessed Christmas and A Very Happy New Year.
