Festive feelings and missing my Jess.....

So Jess is in New York and ive not seen her since the Summer. I cant afford to fly out to see her and i miss her dreadfully. As we cant sit on her doorstep, with tea and cigarettes and exchange gossip, i thought id make her some sparkly decorations and send her a pre-christmas parcel of cheer. So whatever she gets up to, she knows im still here and very much insane with the craft bug but most of all miiiiiisssssssssssss her!

Last year i made my Mother some decorations for her birthday, here they are in the making...

I made them at the same time as the teddies and the doughnuts in December 2008 (see previous post) This is the first design made up:
They are slightly flatter than spheres as i stuffed them with toy stuffing to be light and tactile. I wanted to make some more, similar to these but using whatever i had in my flat.

Some old jumpers, curtain hoops, decorative braids, old buttons and silk tassels......

And these are the three sets i will send her.
