Christine's Christmas Order - (Part 2)

Greetings dear friends & readers
(Warning - bit of a photo heavy post!!)

Last Thursday I loaded up my car with all of Christine's Christmas Orders & drove to the other side of the city to deliver them, & to see her Christmas decorating (shall not mention the fact that I got lost twice in the city trying to find her!!) 
Believe me friends - I was Not disappointed!! 😊

Above is the Christmas Tree in the Winter Wonderland Lounge which is where the Angel & Santa 
from my last post were created for

More Winter Wonderland Vignettes

Way back in this post in 2016 Christine commissioned me to make her a black & cream Santa to go in her black/cream decorated lounge.
(Photo of the Santa from my 2016 blog post)
This year - in her new home - the master bedroom has the black & cream theme ..... so Christine asked me to 
make up an Angel that matched the Santa

I was fortunate enough to still be able to buy some of the black floral fabrics for her wings & bloomers
(I have used the Charlotte Angel Pattern again by Rosalie Dekker designs)

I had used the wooden star buttons on Santa's Jacket & I managed to find one left in my stash

Here they both are below - sitting on the bed in the black & cream decorated bedroom

Christine had even decorated her dressing tables in a black & cream Christmas theme - just stunning !

These photos below show her dining area - this was decorated in a copper & gold colour scheme - quite traditional, which I loved.

In this area is the free standing fireplace - Christine had wound bubble wrap around the chimney flue & then added greenery & stunning copper & gold Christmas embellishments - it looked just like a tree 💗

So of course - she needed a copper & gold decorated Santa & Angel for this area.

When Christine placed her Order she had given me some of the copper & gold fabrics which I used in both the 
Santa & Angel but was lucky enough to find others to compliment this colourway.
Also some copper bells for Santa to hold which were found in a Variety Store in Mum's town

I made up a patchwork stocking using a mixture of all the fabrics & stuffed it with greenery, a copper wire heart &
 a vintage Santa ornament

For his other arm I found this coppery coloured bear - leftover stock from my Cottage closure
I removed his bow & made him a bowtie & a pom pom hat . . . . .

He was the perfect size for Santa's other arm & just tucked in nicely

Miss copper/gold Angel turned out beautifully - her hair is the most gorgeous coloured hand dyed mohair

(You can click on the photos to enlarge them if you wish)

I love her sweet little face.
I even found some sparkly copper ribbon at my local Patchwork Store

Once again, the Variety store provided the copper hanging crystal decoration which was just the right size 
to stitch in her hands
The paint for her shoes is Burnt Sienna  -  I found by mixing just a teeny bit of black into this, it gave just the right shade of coppery gold that I was after

Christine was delighted with her entire Order & we had a lovely time finding homes for all her Angels & Santa's
 in her beautifully decorated Home.
Remember in my last post how I said she even decorates her bathroom at Christmas ??
Well dear friends, I took a photo to prove it 😉 !!

If you have managed to stay with me til the end, thank you So Much! 
I hope the week ahead is good & kind to you all,

Julie & the furry ones x0x0x0
