I am a bit Barr-Humbug at Christmas even though I tend to stitch loads of Xmas decorations every year, one of the girls at work showed me a picture in September from pininterest and said she was going to collect all the used plastic cups and would I order her some staples,
This is what she did with the cups. This the entrance to our Maternity unit.

Each snowman takes about 180 cups.

Gifted Gorgeousness 2015

I have enjoyed this sal as there was no pressure to produce or show anything each month at this time of year I am busy making gifts for Christmas so will share the in the New a Year.
I could almost call this upcycling I started with a several pices of fabric and ended up with this after a 
workshop with Stuart  at the Vikingloom in November.

A beautiful raggy wreath, I was gifted the ribbon from my mother-in-law it is wired edged and has sequins and beads on so when it catches the light it sparkles.
In the same day I also maded a Xmas Stocking 

Another afternoon I also made this.

They are all hung up at home.

Hi Jayne, hopping on from Jo's GG SAL .
Thank you for posting the picture of Snowman made of recycle material. I'm a big promoter of recycle and reuse and love people can introduce the concept in their life.
I like the wreath ,stocking you made, The heart ornament is gorgeous.

Thanks for taking part in GG this year. I just realised I missed out commenting on quite a few of the December link ups!
Love those cup snowmen, very clever.
Your patchwork looks great too, especially the heart.
