Thank you Elizabeth - we hope you have loads of fun trying the different methods.
Thank you for your kind feedback Barbara.
Thank you Ruth :) I really enjoyed making the pudding picture. Having no expectations of the outcome and just playing is really rather freeing! Hope you had a great Christmas too!

Thank you Marilyn, yes the creative process is a bit of a magical mystery tour sometimes isn't it! If you haven't got a set plan you can end up anywhere. Sometimes even if you have got a set plan, you end up somewhere else. Such fun! We had a lovely day thank you, I hope you did too! :)

Thank you Teri :) I really enjoy making lots of little random pieces of felt, experimenting with various interesting odds and ends. It's a bit like having a felty sketchbook in a way. It's great when you rediscover them later and find a use for them in a new project! I hope you find inspiration in your box of samples too! Hope you had a lovely Christmas :)

Thank you Marilyn. I think Amaryllis and Poinsettia are THE Christmas plants because of their colour.

Thank you Deborah - you're not alone liking the stitches ... maybe I should turn the pot around!

Thank you Wendy - shame the x stitches are at the back isn't it?

Merry Christmas Ruth! Here's hoping we do get a good bloom - still green leaves and shoot today.

Thanks Marilyn - it's also a good idea simply for those pushed for time for making decorations!

I don't need an excuse to go back Ruth ... the fabric/knitting shop is like Aladdin's cave when you like textiles isn't it! The no-sew bunting is a great idea for a project to do with children. The bunting in the photo is what's hanging in my hallway this year.

Thank you Maria - the reindeer on the pink and blue reminds me of the 'Babycham' one!

Tinsel is a great idea! Goodies included some chunky yarn, a new pair of pinking shears, buttons, ribbon, 'vilene' and fabric.

Thank you Marilyn - I've often wondered what the recipient of the partridge (and the other weird gifts) really felt and that inspired the last line of the verse.

Hello Laura, Ann (from the Felting and Fiber Forum) has a way of making beads around pencils to give a large hole. Heres how she does it: 1) Bunch 6 round or hexagonal pencils together. 2) Wrap some wool around the pencils 3 or 4 times in about a 1 inch wide strip. The more wool you use the thicker the bead. 3) Wet your hands with warm soapy water( dish soap is fine) and start gently rubbing the wool and pencils back and fourth between your hands. 4) Keep wetting your hands and rubbing until the wool is completely wet and the wool tightens around the pencils. 5) Remove 1 pencil. Roll the wool and pencils a little more aggressively around the remaining pencils. 6) Every time the wool gets tight around the pencils remove one until there is only one pencil tightly wrapped in wool. Remove the last pencil and you have a bead. I would practice making beads with different wool till you find what you think will work best, then scale it up. It is a noisy thing to do so I dont recommend sitting watching TV with your spouse for this. Mine was not impressed.

Thank you Bekki - I have my overgrown patio to thank for the colours!
Thank you Maria. Scrim is also known as cheesecloth and you can buy pieces ready dyed or you can do it yourself - we have a free tutorial showing how to dye the natural cloth http://rosiepink.typepad.co.uk/rosiepink/tutorial-hand-dyeing-scri.html It's very open weave so it felts in easily.
