Plans of the Cunning Variety

You remember the little felted balls I made recently? Well, I have come up with something to do with them *grins*

The Christmas decor at boyfriend's flat is orange/cream/brown... Finding orange tree decorations is almost impossible... See where I'm going with this?

I also found some cute little present shaped decorations I had bought some time ago. They open up to put sweets and such inside, but I thought they might look good with orange balls:

It's a little sparse at the moment, and it is extremely difficult to get a picture that represents what it actually looks like *laughs* But I think it will work. And I have plenty of feltable merino left to fill this and the other 3 decorations up:


I have also had a small amount of inspiration for presents. I have no idea whatsoever what to get my grandfather as a gift. And then it came to me - I can make him some cotton washcloth type things for him to use in his workshop! It might not be a perfect present, but I think it is thoughtful and useful enough to be a good idea.

You may wonder how this equates to a cunning plan - and given that I'm not a fan of cotton and don't have much time before Christmas to add more present requirements, you may have a point *laughs But I'll work it out ;)
