Crafting On

The bathroom has gained two inches of width with the new tub and it feels so luxuriously large!  It could be the fact that there is no sink right now, though.  I've been joking about just leaving it out--there's nothing like decluttering to show you what you really don't need! It's coming along and we are peeling back the layers of art deco linoleum (sadly, not salvageable).  Here are some crafts from the past week:

May Day

Our May Day decoration from All Year Round, that I finished on May Day.
I told myself the whole time that I only ever have to make it once, hopefully.
One of the dear girls has a crooked crown and it's glued on.
We all feel like that, from time to time.

Sheepy

Here's Roan's Sheepy.  It's the pattern from Toymaking with Children.
This one's made with super bulky yarn and size 9 needles, I think.
I wanted a nice cuddly version.

Heart Warmer

And I'm into making rice bags, lately.
They have been helpful for my sore neck, which is feeling much better.
This is for Roan to snuggle up with, made with cotton chamois.

Tomten and Fox

And here's his Tomten and Fox, inspired by the This Cosy Life blog, from so long ago.
Felt is just the perfect medium for peg dolls and I have really enjoyed making them.

This week for me--somehow keep the peace and cut out doll clothes! For more crafting, visit Frontier Dreams.

I may try that. I think it will be good for Winter nights, too. :-)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
