It's always nice to make gifts
nice too to receive some 
and use them in our stitching projects.

It's great and fun to show all this and the perfect place is on Jo's blog Serendipitous Stitching on the 15th of each month for the Gifted Gorgeousness post.

Si vous aimez fabriquer et recevoir des cadeaux, vous aimerez visiter le blog de Jo, le 15 de chaque mois pour le Gifted Gorgeousness "show".

For the kids, I'm always working with felt for small food.

There are two scales for me, one for the girls to play cooking and a smaller one for my fabric dolls Violette (s).

Before go in the kitchen, it would be fun harvesting vegetables.

A lot of inspiring felt work on the internet and some lovely vegetable gardens. Ground is made with brown felt and you can insert the roots between two rolls of fabric.

I'm trying to have a right scale to turn Violette into a gardener.

I'd love to make an apron, some tools, a basket, flowers and vegetables and a scarecrow. I planed to make new vegetables : leeks, cauliflower, carrots, pumpkin, red beet, salads.

Que pensez-vous de cet adorable potager réalisé en feutrine, où l'on récolte ses légumes.

Here are my first attempts :

My first cauliflower was too small and the pumpkin was too big, I must keep in mind to check the scale with the silhouette of the hand of the doll.

Premier essais : poireaux, batteraves, salades, citrouille, chou-fleur et de futures carottes.

On the net there is felt pond too, so cute with waterlilies flowers and that's one more idea on my list now. 

I recently bought some tiny fish buttons I could use on the water! I have to think about this new project. 

Une petite mare pourrait également me tenter.

Avec des roseaux, des nénuphars, champignons et de petits boutons en forme de poisson que je viens d'acheter sur le marché de Figeac.

On one picture there are geese and frogs which remind me I made felt white geese long time ago and have some more already cut in a WIP bag somewhere. I found it in less than five minutes which is a big sign!

The patterns are ok with the doll size. 

Autre signe encourageant, quelques présentations montrent des oies et canards et je me souviens d'en avoir fabriquer il y a des années pour le sapin de Noël. J'ai retrouvé mon sac contenant des pièces déjà découpées en un temps record et la taille convient parfaitement pour la poupée Violette.

Can't wait to start a new work for October and it has to be a Christmas pattern.

As birthday gifts I have received last May the pattern of an Angel from Brooke's Books and a brown antique perforated paper.

I have started with the white color of the apron, then with two red from my stash.

Un nouveau projet sur papier perforé : Mme Noël, le patron et les fournitures m'ayant été offert en mai dernier.

Here is today update

Advent season will be soon here, with lot of ideas for Christmas ornaments to give to friends, so surely more tiny felt pullovers, gnomes and home made cards.

La saison de l'avent approchant, les idées pour de nouvelles décorations de Noël vont fleurir sur le blog, aucun doute.

Perfect theme for a first Autumn post, as "leaves" have been chosen by the People...

It's time for the You Choose SAL from Jo, you'll find here

all the friends who are participating in this event and will share with you beautiful leaves made in so many ways.

So take a seat maybe a cup of tea (with true leaves in your teapot!).

Voici un thème parfait en ces premiers jours d'automne, les feuilles ayant été choisi par les participants au "You Choose" d'octobre présenté sur le Blog de Jo.

Prenez un siège, une tasse de thé et découvrons ensemble mon choix parmi mes ouvrages...

I'll begin with some leaves of lily of the valley

Quelques brins de muguet, une jonquille ouvrant un abécédaire printanier, un petit jardinier taillant ses buis dans mon jeu de l'oie.

A daffodil opening a springtime alphabet book, a little gardener pruning his boxwoods in my goose game, maybe I should have add some crosses on the ground.

Quelques feuilles des plantes variées, 
some leaves from varieted plants

On "Autumn" old WIP, some 1 on 1 leaves patterns

Les ouvrages d'hiver et de Noël vont nous offrir quelques bouquets de feuilles de houx.   Some holly leaves in winter and Christmas stitchings.

Le temps des feuille de cerisiers - Cherry trees

Cerises, pommes, fraises sur une plaque de loto - On lotto, cherries, apples and strawberries

It's Autumn season on this lovely fabric I used for the back of this cushion.

Pine trees

Serviettes, napperon et sets de table, du point lancé.

Now in the garden,   un petit tour au jardin

et dans la cuisine, feuilles d'ananas et d'artichauts
in the kitchen, pineapple and artichoke leaves

Some tiny felt salad leaves for a doll grocery shop

Made in felt, some oak leaves among other bush leaves

Leaves on watercolor cards.         Un peu d'aquarelle maintenant.

Couverture réalisée en polaire mauve pour Soline- A blanket made with fleece material for Soline

Those are the more recent leaves I have cut for a pop up birthday card.
Plantes d'intérieur pour carte d'anniversaire pop up.

Not so much leaves on those trees, but here it's the same word for the book pages so the sheets of paper of the books can be added.

Effeuillons ces arbres ou feuilletons ces livres, il est toujours question de feuilles (du latin folia).

L'automne venant, les feuilles tombent des arbres, malheureusement ce fût le cas sur mon en cours point de croix Cuore & Batticuore, je viens de m'apercevoir d'un décalage d'un fil sur l'arbuste de droite donc à refaire.

With autumn coming, the leaves are falling from the trees, unfortunately this was the case on my Cuore & Batticuore cross stitch WIP, I have just noticed that there was a mistake on the right tree so I'll have to redo it one thread down.

A look to the sky to end this post with some kites made with leaves during the Dieppe Intertional Festival.

Dans le ciel du festival international
de Dieppe

Des feuilles qui sous les doigts habiles
des participants se transforment
en cerfs-volants.
