I love the idea of felt pockets. I also think I need a pair of pinking shears, now that I see how cool it looks when you used them.

Growing up, my mother had a wonderfully heavy pair that could pink off someone's head. I suspect that I'll be disappointed by the quality of today's pinking shears in comparison. Especially if I opt for the bucket-o-scissors that are full of different edgers, which I secretly really really want.

I've just discovered you through flickr and the soft trees group, I guess many people will come soon, as everything you make is sooo pretty!
I will come visit regularly now!

Clever and well made!! I wish I could open one!!

If I get a few minutes here I'm going to post my advent calendar from 1976.

I love your take on the advent calendar, especially stringing the pockets from the lights.

Beautiful colors. The exquisiteness of your embroidery is always a treat to see. Now back to my own...

this is SO great!! and thanks for all the links! :)

i'm curious about the pinking shears too...do they even make them like they used to?

They are wonderful. And I love all that stitching. I made some for the very first time this year, and we are having such fun...colouring in;glitter-glue; popcorn; making necklaces; bouncy balls; stickers; jokes...oh the list goes on.


I have new nieces too..
What a good excuse to make lots of goodness!
