A White Wool Feather Tree of course! Made by my own two hands! This past weekend Jill, my partner in crime LOL! from North Woods Wool got together in the studio and figured out how to construct a wool feather tree! We didn't have to start from scratch however as we had a kit that I had won in a blog give-away a year or so ago! Many of you know Joanne from Snippets and Scraps of my Mind blog. Well let me tell you what a sweetheart she is! When I won the feather tree kit from her blog I actually didn't think it would take me a whole year to put it together! Ah... but then again..... I should have known. It takes me longer to do everything these days than I think.
Well, Joanne has been an angel about answering questions and helping me to the point where I feel comfortable that I can teach a class in constructing your very own tree! So those blog readers who live near me...... I'd like to let you know we will be having a class here in the studio right after Christmas. We decided these trees are so dang cute you will want to leave them out right through Valentines Day. Tiny little hearts for decorations..... how sweet would that be?
So you can email me or give me a call to let me know if you would like to get on the list for the class. We will let you know particulars at that time!
Another thing I'd like to let local readers know is that the Studio will be open this Saturday from 10:00 til 4:00. Jill and I will be here to help with your wooley needs and perhaps get you started on a project or help with a gift.
I think I've pulled a dozen loops on my French Urn Pattern since I last wrote. My Mom is doing really well after her cataract surgery and has an appointment with the eye surgeon again this week.
If you are experiencing this rainy, dreary, awful depressing ( sorry but it's true!) weather where you live...my suggestion is to make yourself a wonderful cup of hot mocha latte' coffee and stir with an amaretto stick.... light a candle..... and nestle in your favorite chair. Perhaps with a fur friend or two.
Keeps the dark thoughts at bay and nurtures the soul for
the long winter ahead!
