The village of Little-Felting

My little felt village, made of Christmas decorations, the collection has become lovingly known as Little-Felting, I was a tiny bit sad to see a handful go to new homes last night ( I had a craft stall at a local event ) - I'm sure I'll find a few spare minutes to whip up a few more this evening to boost the population.
Last night was a funny old night but I received some lovely comments about the felt houses and owls and fairypants was a great support...
The quirky village in question

Looking forward very much to a Fair on Sunday, I haven't done anything like this for a while and I'm hoping to have a lovely day, here are the details:

Cherry Events
Sunday 11th Sept
Uppermill Civic Hall
All proceeds to Oldham Cancer Support Centre
£1 Entry

A sample of my softie stock for Sunday's Fair!

Busy, busy at the moment, I am working on a Sailor Doll and hoping to complete it by Monday, I may well be stitching it at the fair, last minute as usual, a very bad habit of mine!

Obviously a work in progress, lots of stitching to be done over the weekend, good job the man of the house is away camping with the boys...
