Swedish tomte and cards

Hi, I have got lots for you to see this time, I have made lots more cards and I have discovered the Swedish tomte, which is like a father Christmas crossed with a knome. I thought that I would have a go at making some and here is what I made

 This one I didn't knit but made it from an old knitted jumper
 This is a felted one
This one I knitted and put a bell on its hat
 
I have only done one embroidered card this time as I have been more in the mood for parching so here are my creations.

knitted slippers and embroidered cards

I have knitted two pairs of slippers, both of which are for presents. I have used nice blue and purple colours, which will be nice for the winter.


I have added a few more embroidered cards to the collection
The first one is a lovely bird done in a straight stitch


The second is an owl card, I like the colours of this one, the background is done in red and blue water colours, making nice rich tones, complimenting the golden owl.

The third card is a Christmas moon embroidered in silver thread.
