happy birthday, mom!

before the sun
not a bad way to start the day. a little blog/board reading, cup of freshly ground coffee from my french press (thank you sherry!) with a fun crochet project in my own hand-spun wool :)
so, that was my first 8 minutes of the day... before the pitter-patter of little feet. soon to be followed by their favorite thing to say "i'm hungry!" and then, "why did she get the red bowl? i don't want the yellow one!".. i'll spare you the rest.

today is my mom's birthday. this is what i made her:
snowman
i needle felted him and crocheted his hat and scarf. her Christmas tree is decorated in snowmen, so i think he will fit in nicely. he's about 3 inches tall. rather cute, if i do say so myself :)

yesterday, i had all these things in my head i kept thinking 'i need to blog that' - and today - nothin' poof! it's gone. this is why i have a so many stinkin' notepads and a palm zire full of notes - from what size shoes my kids wear to what type bag my vacuum cleaner needs. i forget stuff!

the new yarn swap is about to begin at Crochetville
this time it is Winter Wool
WinterWool
i'm pretty excited about this one. i sure hope everyone follows through and ship good wool to their partners.
i must get.... have one last gift to complete

He's precious. I haven't tried needle felting yet, it is hard? I can't sew anymore, used to do crewel embroidery, but it's been years.

Your notes and my notes must end up the same place, off somewhere laughing at us. I write them down, then lose them only to find it months later.

I love the snowman! That's a great idea -- I have some felting needles that I should put to work! (I surely have plenty of wool too, oy). :)

It will be fun to see how the wool swap goes! Mm wool!

The snowman is so cute!!
I just saw some needle felted cuties somewhere else too today. Hmm, what does that mean? ;)
I think something is trying to tell me that I should get stuff to try needle felting! :D
Merry Christmas, Rebecca!

love the snowman!! He's a cutie patootie. Just signed up for the Winter Wool swap. Thanks for the comments on my seraphina. It's good ol' Lion Brand Wool Ease color: pines. It pretty much grabbed me by the color at the store and screamed by me or suffer my wrath. It took a while for it to tell me what it wanted to be, though.
