I was supposed to be making Christmas decorations this week, but things took a bit of a difficult turn when I sprained my ankle at work. For those who are interested, I was walking across a perfectly flat piece of carpet in my flattest shoes, and I rolled my ankle. I am just incredibly grateful that I didn't break it. For the last few days I have been sitting on the couch with my leg up, so my plans of making salt dough decorations with the girls did not come to pass. However, I did find that sitting around was good for doing some hand sewing so I created these little felt decorations.
Its the first time I've attempted blanket stitch, and I'm quite pleased with the result, even if it is a little rough.
This was supposed to be a dove, but P declared it looked like a duck, and I have to agree with her, so it is our Christmas Duck.
