Check These Out...

Remember when we made felted balls? I happened upon Stemellina Supplies Etsy shop and thought these felted beads were so cute I had to share. These would be made using the same technique we used to make the felted balls with the designs needle felted on the finished bead.

We'll do some needle felting projects in the future to show how fun it is to embellish your felted projects.

"No Sweater for You!"

One of the Christmas gifts I received from my mom this year was a book on learning to knit, three skeins of yarn and several sets of knitting needles in various sizes.

Filled with the anticipation of learning a new skill, I asked my husband if I knit him a sweater if he'd wear it; he immediately said "no". I said "even if I spend hours and hours slaving away to make you a handmade sweater?" He said "that's why I'm telling you before you spend hours and hours on it." Kill joy.

Maybe I'll make him a hat...
