Christmas Charms/chat

For a swap in my group. For Donna M and my sis, Mary. I had a ball doing these. I love this time of the year and love doing anything to do with Christmas. I also made 4 for my younger sister, Patti J and me. the 3rd row is for Patti and the last row for me...I do not know if any one wears theirs but I do..lol I am not sure if I will add these to my charms bracelet..I felted roving, red, with red flash Angelina fibers and use a sheer green in the back. A few of the charms has deco on them. I can not seem to get a very neat outer edge like I do with fabric. But with more practice it will come. I prefer fabric over felted charms.
I can not find my box of Christmas fabrics so I will have to do a search for them today. I made a few Christmas card with what I had out from last year...but now can not go on without the rest, plus I bought some beautiful fabrics after Christmas last year and would love to use them...lol
Hand is getting better as long as I do not over do it..like polymer clay and such..no jewelry making yet..can not pull on the wire..so I am lost for now..so doing up swaps that are due this month and next month...All of sudden I do not like having to have deadlines and I know with every group I am in we do. I am always afraid something will come up and I can not get them done....
