I love working with wool, the feel of it in my hands is very comforting and relaxing. I also love trying new projects, this is why the blog was started. I'm married to a wonderful guy for 30 years. Yes I was a child bride! We have 3 wonderful children, Erin, Gabrielle and Jimmy. Also a cat named Lily, more Queen Lily as she rules the house.

the hot chick

I forgot to add the hot chick how silly of me! Here she is.........

valentine mat

Well we had another snow storm last week, maybe another in the works for this Wednesday. I honestly think the weatherman is afraid to say anything anymore, we have so much.  I actually like the snow does not bother me in the least, but when is there enough? 
So with this week's snow and looking forward to spring, yes I am still seeing a simmer of light through that pile of snow. I decided to make something for Valentines day. It is not a big day but would this tabletop just brighten things up around all this cold and snow?

It was alot of fun to make but getting the frame of it down was a bit of a challenge. But I made it work!
Then I am fiddling with some birds again, out of all that I did this was the last and she the hot little chick is going right on my table for company to Mr. Crow the grouch! Maybe she will spread a little cheer to him. Miss Chick did say she liked his cap, he just crawed.
Well hope you all have an excellent week!

bird banner day!

So yesterday we had another snow storm here in the north, we are getting slammed this year in Rhode Island. But then again this is ok with me, although I was sitting at my desk at work thinking it sure would be nice to get outside in the garden. Yes I do daydream a bit (ok alot) at work. But be honest who does not. Some of the greatest ideas come from sitting at a desk when they should be working.
Today I made a banner, first one I have ever attempted to make. I must say I was a bit impressed with it. Actually I have always wanted to make one and what a better way then to use the birds I have been making and trying to figure out what to do with them.
So what do you think? Not bad for a first timer?
Then I finished a wall hanging with some feathered friends.
I think my mind has gone to the birds, or maybe I am just thinking to much about spring lately?
Well going to head to the sewing machine and fix my husbands pants, he has been after me for a while to do this. But I told him if I don't have that feeling of fixing them at the right time they just won't come out right (I only have to fix the waistband lol). So I am off to the mending! Wish me luck.

Getting through the Holidays

First of all, a very merry holiday season to all. And a most happy New Year to all.
It has been so long since my last post. Like the rest of you I am sure, I was over whelmed by the Holidays.
But now they are over quicker than a wink and I didn't know what to do with myself. I kept walking by my "projects" and saying I should get to this or that this evening. Well the evenings came and went and then yesterday, I started sorting through the mass confusion on my table and board. This is now what it looks like

Believe me when I say this is cleaned up! Now to get back in there and finish up some projects!
The only thing I did try is teaching myself to knit. I have to somehow learn to loosen up on my stitches I very tight on the needles. This what I made so far, a winter hat for Mr. Crow. He fought me all the way putting it on, was not happy at all about the white flakes i put around the rim.
Told him he could easily be replaced, shut him up quickly!
Well going to finish some things around the house and maybe sit and sew a bit. Great day to do some sewing the sun is shining brightly in the craft room.
Have a beautiful and warm day!
