I had the most amazing time on Friday night. My friend Janel invited a bunch of women over with their kids to craft. I was so excited, and so were the kids. It reminds me of my friend Betsy's Craft Girls. She used to have these cool wine/cheese get togethers were we just crafted. I'd love to do that here too, but I don't know many people around my area who are crafty.
Anyway, Janel lives a little more than an hour away, so it was actually kind of fun to bundle the kids up, pack jammies for the ride home and head over. I brought needlefelting, because winter makes me want to needlefelt. I have done a few pieces lately that I wanted to share.
First, I needlefelted this little sheep to give to Janel as a hostess gift. It is an ornament. I actually dig the sheep, but she is about one week from being a downer sheep. Only people who have read Laurie Garrett's The Coming Plague might know what that means, but let's just say, she is a little wonky and is headed for greener pastures. I still have been enjoying three-dimensional felting.
And while there, I started and today finished a new Santka Lucia ornament. Not sure if I am gifting her, or keeping her.
Sorry for the crap lighting on this one.
I will be posting pictures from the show in the new few days, and some Christmas crafts--easy and cheap decorations I made in the first year of my marriage, and am still using! Hallelujah!
