I managed to finish my Christmas Podding project and fill him with my favourite Lindt chocolates...my own private stash :)
I managed to squeeze 14 in which should just see me through Christmas Day!
Soon as I told mum the Christmas Podding was to hide sweets in her eyes lit up! So I told her I was going to make the holly extra prickly to make it difficult for her to steal them :)
So she made her own "easy access" sweetie dish! Apparently there were a lot more than 3 chocolates but they didn't survive the photo session!
Mum's dish depicts the Grinch who stole Christmas with credit to http://www.dragoart.com/ for the 'how to draw The Grinch face' tutorial. I love it!
I think my next project should be a badge for mum - "I am the Mum who Stole the Chocolates" ! Believe me, no chocolate is safe if mum is in the room!
A few weeks ago, I found these little samples that I made last year and felt really inspired to crack on with some Christmas projects - I had all sorts of visions of pictures of crazy coloured puddings with oversized holly, felted and painted and stitched...
...And flourescent embroidered baubles and fat robins and....oh well, I think I'd need to start on New Year's Day to get it all done! But I'm pleased with Podding and I love mum's Grinch dish....and all the chocolates!
