What have I been up to?

Well you all know that I've been selling my creations at a biweekly wine fest. I made these last year for gifts and decided to make them to sell this year. 

As of today, I've sold all of them I made this year.  I've been making other Christmas ornaments too...

Like these fabric covered spheres... I bought a couple of fat quarters and ripped them into "ribbons" and used them to cover the styrofoam balls. 

Then I added the bows and jingle bells to the bottom... Rustic and cute huh?  And I have the left over "ribbon" to do something with later.

I also made these felt Christmas birds with jingle bells.  I didn't have any polyfill so I stuffed them with gauze.  They are hand sewn... since I don't have a sewing machine. Maybe I'll get one for Christmas!


  1. You've been busy, it is a lot of work to sell at shows, I'm glad you are doing so well. I love the little red birds they are so cure. Take care Lorrie

  2. Hi Dianne,
    beautiful items.The felted birds are adorable.
    Have a great week.

  3. So've been busy and sure have the Christmas spirit!

  4. I love the butterfly and moss ornamanet ! It would work so nicely with a lot of the natural woodsy things I have on my tree.
    I hope Santa has heard your wish for a sewing machine...;)

  5. I can tell you've been busy. Me too, that's why I'm so late getting here. I love the nature inspired ball. It is amazing. And of course, those birds are simply adorable, too.

  6. I can see how your ornaments have been selling as they are wonderful. I especially love the little butterfly in the moss. Happy Holly Jolly Joy...

  7. I love the little redbirds! My sister made some one year...maybe I should try! ♥

  8. I love your organic way of sewing! LOVE the red birds!
