Tilda Delights and Merry Christmas!

Dear friends, this will be my last post before Christmas and I wanted to wish you all a blessed, holy and happy Christmas.  Rejoice!

This time of year often evokes fond memories of our own childhood Christmases, sprinkled with beloved toys and fairy tales cherished for many years.  I thought I'd share with you my 'Tilda Corner', where I try to recreate that magical feeling.  The toy soldier and pretty ballerina were made using patterns from Tone Finnanger's "Tilda's Fairy Tale Wonderland" book.

They preside over a winter wonderland in this corner of our living room...

The Tilda wire tree is decorated with pretty Tilda boxes and papers, as well as some new Father Christmas figures...

Animals add to the whimsical scene...

I just finished two more projects from that book today, made especially for a sweet little girl in the family.  The deer hasn't received his antlers just yet, and the ballerina needs a headpiece, but the majority of the work is done - just in time for Christmas!

Not long ago I purchased the latest book by Tone Finnanger, called Tilda's Winter Delights.

The first project I tried were these cute Father Christmas figures:

Here's how they turned out:

I'm looking forward to working on more projects from this book...

(Aren't these chalet girls the cutest?  Can't wait to try making them)

Have a wonderful Christmas friends!  Here's hoping you have fun crafting this winter, too.

Your creations are beautiful. I am going to look for Tilda's Delights. I have never heard of the book, but it looks like there are a lot of fun ideas.

Thanks for the inspiration.
