Felting Craze

 This weekend was dedicated to hanging with my sister, our kids and lots of wool.  We set up the crafting tables down in the big yoga room and felted day and night.  Kids played and when the urge took them they joined in on the felting fun.  With valentine's around the corner we focused on felting hearts and dolls.  I have so many hearts made that I am having to think of different ways to use them.  I started making a wreath (above) which I will put hearts all around.  I wet felted it and part of it is drying on my kitchen counter.
 Hanging with my sister is easy.  It's easy being with one another hanging doing what we do.  She is one of the people on this planet that understands me the best.  Having grown up under the same roof with the same parents there are some things that only she and my brother understands.  We also have some of the same genetic makeup which binds us.  Together we can laugh at simple things and we trust each other with the matters of our hearts.  So in a way it's fitting that we spent the weekend felting hearts and honoring love as we do really love each other.

 Zoe has been in heaven with her little cousin to carry around.   She is really coming into herself.  She's been changing diapers and just loving playing big sister.

You would think that after hours of felting hearts, and wet felting we would want to pack it in but not us ladies, oh, no!  Last night Karie from workermade came over and we started on this cute bride and groom for our wed by hands show in a couple of weeks.  I am working on the groom and having so much fun with this project. She left with the bride 3/4 made and I look forward to seeing what she comes up with.
Last but not least here is the garland that Mad made.  It's so cute and I am going to do the same with some of my hearts.

Hi Annie,
Your felted bride and groom are really cute. Checked the Wed by Hand website and am sorry there is no more room for exhibitors. Would certainly like to join next year. Looks like a festive event and wish lots of visitors take the opportunity to select hand made product for their special day.
