i love this it reminds me of my advent calender when i was younger. it was a felt christmas tree with red pockets and gold glitter glue numbers, i think my mum bought them from a school fair. anyway, yeah i think these are so much better to the store bought ones, although that is what i have this year.
i think the stable would look great in the blanket stitch as you have already done a brilliant job of it already, it looks very crisp and clean.. tis very lovely, i hope this doesnt tilt to the side as the chocolates get eaten from left to right though  Smiley

The one I saw in Germany was a felt Christmas tree like that.  After spending way too much time on this, I did wonder why I didn't just buy it.

And it does tilt to the side... oops!  Bad planning on my part. But I can adjust for it by shifting the string.

It's beautiful.
The least expensive way I've discovered to get wool felt is to buy 100% wool sweaters at thrift shops and then intentionally shrink them!!!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
