Winter scene and Christmas Needle Felting

Unfortunately we had to do away with our nature table while our house is on the market : (
I did manage to make this magical little winter scene though.  I hoped to make so many more things for it but just haven't had the time yet.
I saw these awesome paper trees on a blog somewhere and can't for the life of me remember where.  The idea came from Martha Stewart though.  Here is the tutorial.  I used the skewer for the one in the middle and the rest I just glued the pieces together.
The snow is made from quilt batting.
A lot of my needle felting this Christmas has been inspired and some downright copied from the amazing fibre artist Daria Ivovsky.  She is truly amazing!
I originally made this mother and daughter as gifts but when I finished I just couldn't part with them.
This cute little bendy Christmas elf was made for my sister.  She's currently hanging on L's advent calendar.

When I saw the gorgeous ballerina on Daria's Flicker page I knew I wanted to attempt one for a little friend of ours who loves dancing!
You can bend her in all sorts of positions.
I've also been doing some teeny tiny needle felting which I will post about tomorrow : )
