I just finished updating my Ready, Set, J.E.T. blog with all the fun things we are doing here in Tucson, but I didn't want to leave out the fun and cool crafting that has been happening.
A little background; Emma and I came out to watch Livy and Myra in October. I had just taught myself to crochet and I managed to get Yvonne hooked (ha ha, pun intended as it is late and I am tired:) on crocheting. This time I was all about felting and managed to spread my excitement. Yvonne got a hold of one of my felting books, The Sweater Chop Shop, and decided she wanted to make some Ragamuffins. I think they came out awesome! I made the dinosaur and the RM with his legs crossed, Yvonne made the black and blue one. It took us a few starts and stops to get the little guys done, but we managed to finish them today (Yvonne is not as craft obsessed as I am so she felt that feeding and keeping an eye on our children was a priority :)
Yesterday I helped pack up some of the girls out grown clothes up to be shipped to their cousin. While going through the pile of clothes I found this cute little jean skirt. A little fabric liner and a fabric strap and we have a new bag.
And as promised, here are a few more pictures of the little flowers I made then added to the girls hats. Ok, so after looking at the picture again I realize that the flowers are hard to see, but the girls sure are cute!
Well, I better get to bed if I want to be rested up for tomorrows crafting!
Edited 2-16-2010 I forgot to add pictures of my first attempts at needle felting, here they are!
