Crafting On

It is a downright gloomy day here.  I don't often feel that, but it is gray and chilly and wet.  Now, we need chilly and wet, and I am thankful for them.  I think the drought will be over when Spring comes again.  I know I'll be all the more thankful for the rain and much less antsy to keep my yard trimmed.  Anyway, weather report aside (but, there is snow coming!), here's what I've been working on.

Tess D'urbervilles

The Tess D'Urbervilles shawl is coming right along.  This is a long job, I'll admit, but I am looking forward to a tie-on shawl.  The Cindersmoke blakdove gave me is getting lots of use these days.  Wear a shawl while you make a shawl.  The moment I sit down, I either get too cold or fall asleep!

Jack Frost

And here's a little fellow for the nature table, once we get past this Christmas season.  I set out to make a King Winter, and Jack Frost came to play instead.  He's got a pipe cleaner base, with wee pants, little icy blue shoes, a tiny sweater, and a cap (with a snowball on the end!).  Laurel likes him and I do think that I made him to be fairly sturdy.

It's hard to get good pictures in this dark weather, but one thing is quite obvious--the nature table needs an overhaul!  Soon enough, though, Christmas will be put away for another year.

Your shawl is the most beautiful colour, it's going to be gorgeous and so snuggly to wrap around you :)

I love jack frost, I've not needle felted in eons. This makes me want to take it up again! I've just switched the nativity for the king Winter

I'm ready for King Winter. :-) I love that needle felting is fairly instant gratification and rather forgiving.

The shawl looks so snuggly already!

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.
