Meery Christmas

No, I didn't make a spelling mistake. With the trend for all things meerkat continuing I started to make a Christmas card for my mother-in-law, who loves them, using a kit from Mouseloft. I also made a second one on evenweave which I hoped to turn into a decoration for our tree.

My Christmas crafting has come to a bit of a halt as just over three weeks ago I found myself back in hospital for a week. It was a side effect of the operation I had earlier this year and I have spent two weeks at home recovering and have only gone out for the first time this week so I am hoping to try and finish everything off in time for Christmas.

Luckily I made all my stitched cards throughout the year and they have now all gone out - below are some I made previously.

I also managed to finish off this felt dog, the third one I have made and it is now on its way to a fellow Airedale owner who fell in love with the one I made for our club's raffle.

Wilberforce has just had his 15 minutes of fame when this Vetvits brochure landed on my door mat. I sent them a picture for their new gallery and received a dog book then forgot all about it until they used him on this recent mail shot. I just hope he doesn't start acting like a star and demanding steak dinners, feather beds and a chauffeur driven car! Hold on, he gets those already!!


  1. We just love the feltie Airedale! He's fabulous!

    Do you sell your felt-Dales on Etsy??

  3. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear you were in the hospital, Shirley--what an awful time of year to end up there! Hopefully, you're on the mend and you'll be back to 100% very soon...

    Wilberforce is a star--so cute! And your little meercat and Christmas cards are all so pretty. I'm amazed that you could make the felt dog so perfectly--I'm sure the new owner just loves it.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family :)
