some Christmas surprises

Whew, what a week--you've all had one, and it's all's
well the end's well, so I won't bore you with details.
And last night was our monthly friends get-together,
which is always such a blessing. My friends are fabulous,
and even though we don't see each other often or chit-chat
on the phone much, it's always good to know who has your

All right then, if you happen to be one of my partners in
Cassandra's ornament swap, you may want to avert your eyes!

What's in the box?? It's a glittery box, you just can't
tell in the photo, of course . . .

It's roses and a tiny nest, complete with eggs.

Yep, made all those roses . . .

and needle felted the nest. Hadn't needle felted
anything for a long time, so that was fun.

More ornaments coming! Have a lovely weekend!

Oh so beautiful and very creative! I just adore the roses ornament... would love to have a little tutorial on how you did that???!!! And the felted nest is lovely... my sister is a knitter and has felted many mittens and knee high slippers to keep us warm in the cold winters! Beautiful work... would have loved to be in on that swap!!

I have never heard of needle felting. Now I have to look it up! It's beautiful!

Needle felting is sooooo easy (except when you stab yourself, OUCH!)!

And Marjie, I have to say, I'm partial to those little eggs myself!!

This is beautiful! I have no idea what needle felting is but I do know it is gorgeous!

p.s. Pendra--the rose balls are basically the super simple rose tutorial (the link is over on the right), then glue a bunch of them all over a foam ball with super tacky glue!

Trisha, thanks for the visit to my place and for sharing your tutorial on the easy paper roses... gotta go out on Monday and buy some Styrofoam balls and I am gonna try these... you make it look so easy! I just love them and think they will be the perfect touch on my victorian tree!!
Thanks sweetie!
