Crafty Calendar Challenge - Whats New!?

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a fab Christmas and New Year!
I am sorry i have not been around but i have not been keeping very well and haven't been able to do much crafting. On a plus i have found a craft that i can do while relaxing...needle felting/felting!
I must admit that there is something very therapeutic about stabbing wool with a needle!!

Today is the start of the first Crafty Calendar Challenge of the year and the theme is "Whats New?" so have used my new found craft to make this little pillow for the challenge.  

This pillow had not been all needle felted but the flowers were put together using the technique.
I used a blanket stitch and added a bead to every other stitch to give the beaded edge and used large pearl buttons for the flower centres.

Here is closer view of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by and i hope you can find time to join in with us at Crafty Calendar Challenge. We are also having a DT call if your interested..details on the challenge blog!

Have a great week ahead!
