Swap: Christmas Decoration on CTnY

As it's been received I think it's safe to update this post with the who, what, when and why of this photo.

We had a Christmas Decoration swap over on the Crafty Threads n Yarn forum and this was what I made for my swap pal, Jacky. If you scroll down the post a bit you'll see the fairy hanging on Jacky's tree (as well as her two beautiful dogs standing in front!)



It's basically a spare wooden curtain ring, over which I crochet some DB Aran Tweed. The fairy is made as all my fairies except I didn't use floss or flowers for her dress - it's made from a piece of a fleecy scarf that I picked up in the Charity shop.

Her boots are needle felted and she's holding a little wooden heart (button). There was a bit of foot stomping when I sent her off so I've got another one in the works for Little Miss CB!

Gorgeous ornament. I'm an art teacher, I use curtain rings for ornament projects each year - this is way beyond my students skill level (they're 5 and 6) but lovely!
Just found your site - great stuff.
