My Creative Space

Following on from last week's spate of Christmas creating, I have again spent this week working on Christmas creations for Domum Vindemia.  Using the same vintage fabric as I've been using for the Christmas stockings, I have been putting together mini embroidery hoop ornaments.  This is another idea I've had floating around in my head for quite some time; ever since I bought my first lot of  teeny doilies, in fact.

As you can see, I have gone for a mix of "traditional" and not so traditional Christmas colours.  And I have embellished each hoop with a teeny tiny vintage doily in a colour which matches the fabric.

I think I prefer the non-traditional Christmas colours, but I am really enjoying the creative process involved in making these little hoops.  I'm not sure if that's because I love anything in embroidery hoops or because it's hard to resist anything mini or teeny.

For those of you who love my cupcake stands, I managed to find a Christmas-themed teaplate, so that has now been turned into a Christmas cupcake stand!  After I brought this plate home, I discovered that the image on it was created by German artist, Monika Heller-Cole.
So what have you been creating this week?  Have your creations been Christmas-oriented (gifts, decorations, etc)?


  1. What a clever idea - love the little embroidery hoops and the green one is gorgeous!
    I'm not doing any christmas creating - might make some day.

  2. That plate is devine and those little hoops are cute, what a great idea. I have started my Christmas knitting this week

  3. what lovely fun you are having, they look so cute!


I love finding out what my readers think, so thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
