After a bit of a delay thanks to an unpleasant tonsil virus and perforated ear drum (the latter Otis, not me!) 5 of the advent calendars are finished. Our one, the 6th, fell by the wayside last week when I had neither the time nor the energy to get the backing fabric for it. But I don’t need to post my one- these need to wing their way to England, to Fife, and, for the first time, to the USA! Which they should be doing tomorrow. How exciting. And, I’ll admit it, what a relief!
The angel this year didn’t end up with green hair (a talked-of possibility) but black, with the sparkly red and white felt used, I hope, to Christmassy effect.
And there you have it. Many, many months of work and much moaning (poor Oli). I love them so much once they’re done: they have a real weight and tactile invitation about them, and the fabrics are lovely, especially the larger flowers, above. But I am glad to see them on their way, and will be happy to start something NEW!
