Toadstool Fairy House

I made this toadstool fairy house from a kit by Corrine Lapierre.  I still have a little felt fairy to make but may make my own rather than the one on the pattern.  I enjoyed making the french knots eventually - after watching a tutorial on you tube.  I don't know what I did before you tube - there are some excellent tutorials on there.  I am not sure what to do with the toadstool now!  It could be used as a pincushion I suppose or I could use it as a prop in my photos?  Anyway, it was a good exercise in starting and completing a project learning new embroidery skills on the way.  Putting the ensemble together was quite technical too!

I have a few things lined up to do over the next few days.  Collage cards are calling to me and playing with jewellery designs and hopefully visiting a spiritual centre to see what courses are on offer. 

See you soon!
