Here are a few photos to capture some of the things I've been up to lately:
An afghan gift for an upcoming family wedding; I distinctly remember starting it during the last season of Downton Abbey, this past January - when it was cold enough to want to have something large and heavy weighing down on me:
Years ago, when my grandma was still alive, I had asked her with disbelief about how in the heck to make a pompom. She hauled out some yarn, wound it in a frenzy around a little round device, produced a perfect little white pompom, tied the whole mess together, and then presented it to me with a flourish:
Lastly, I wanted to make a fun gift for my voice teacher, who loves tulips. What better than a couple of little felted bowls:
Felted Tulip Bowl.
I'm off to more finishing, so I hope to have more fun stories to tell soon!!
