The following three photos are of the "tinsel" I am making. At the Patchwork Apple's Christmas in the Hills Jane had "yo yo tinsel" decorating things. I just loved it and bought a kit to make my own. Mine is actually suffolk puff tinsel. (toe-ma-toe/toh-mah-toe) I have traded the redwork-stitching for tinsel-making infront of the tv. This morning I was struck with an idea. Buttons inbetween the suffolk puffs. Some of the buttons also have bells attatched. It is heavy and jingley and red, red, red! The kids are all thoroughly unimpressed because Christmas is still ages away. Of course, you can never start too early for Christmas I think!
