In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, and anything else that happens to pop into my head. Sit back, relax for five minutes of a day, and enjoy!

Wooly Trees

Last week I had lunch with these people.  I used to work with them at Purdue University.  A couple of weeks ago I had the ladies I worked with over for brunch.  One thing about working there, we all cared about each other.  We were like family.  I don't miss the job so much, because I sat all day, but I do miss the people.  It was such a blessing in my life to have a job where I enjoyed the people so much that after 12 years of not working there, we still stay in touch.

After lunch I headed to Groovy Girl yarn.  I had a pile of wool that we were going to turn into trees!

The pattern came from the book Fa La La La Felt.
Lots of circles to cut out.
Of course, you can't make wooly trees without yummy drinks!
Taaa daaaahhhh!!  Aren't they cute?  "K" and I made a couple of itty bitty ones for fun.
And this...is a gift....so I can't show you the whole thing....but I'll show you a little bit of progress along the way.  Can you guess what it is going to be?
