Xmas Decorations

I am trying to hide my head in the sand about the fact that its nearly xmas, but I'll just have to accept the fact especially now lots of sites are putting up their xmas challenges.
Here I have found this photo of quilted xmas baubles I made for a swap last xmas.  I had never entered into such a challenge before so had to do a lot of research on You Tube.  Wow the ideas abound, but I really liked the idea of these little baubles basically made from fabric scraps pinned on polystyrene balls.  You'll find full instructions here

Next is this gorgeous little crochet xmas stocking, which I found on another challenge site.  Instructions for these cuties are here
Lastly I came across these interesting paper baubles, made from 20 circles of paper glued together.  Learn how to make these here

I love making these as pre xmas gifts.  All are made from scraps which is very thrifty. 
I am entering my quilted baubles in the latest challenge at Lets Craft & Create where their theme this time is 'Trim the Tree'.
I hope you like my creations, and you too can make these following the links I have left for you.  Please leave a comment.  Thank you for visiting.
