The prettiest little bags all personalized and ready for the participants of our first feather tree class here at the studio today~ Jill designed these bags with both of our business names. She hand decorated each bag!
Then..... poor Jill had to come down with the flu!
Drats! She wasn't feeling all that well yet today so decided to stay home and rest! A couple more gals who wanted to take the class had the flu also!
I am proud of these gals for staying home so as not to pass the flu bug to the rest of us!
But those who attended were so enthusiastic it sounds like we will be having another class soon! They want to make MORE trees!! What a blast we had! The wools was a flying and the girls did plenty of buying of wool for their rug hooking and other projects!
Here is a peak of the table before the class started!
I forgot to take pictures while we were in the actual construction stage of the trees.
But here they had completed their trees and were saying how they thought they looked so much like feather dusters! I told them "you can go look for cob webs if you like!" LOL!
Every one decided on an off white textured wool for their trees! Good job ladies!

Vicki is our newest friend and one talented crafter! She owns a little primitive shop north of here a few miles called Simply! It is one fantastic little shop! She hand crafts a lot of the items she sells along with antiques and primitives. Her shop is seasonal and opens in May through Oct. I'll bet you'd like to see some photos of her place when she reopens for this summer season!
Thank-you girls so much for all the fun we had today and all the enthusiasm you have for things yet to come!
It's going to be a busy Spring here in the studio! Some things I will share with you when I get rested up a bit and get my taxes done!
It's going to be a super cold week here in Wisconsin. I hear some below zero weather is on the way! A good week to get the dye kettles boiling and work on the taxes. I have to find out if I've gone over the fiscal cliff here in the studio!
Stay warm and healthy!
