In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Make a Wooly tree!

 I've always been a nature girl.  Most people have little Christmas villages, I have a woods. 
 I try to add a tree every year.  I have these crochet trees my MIL made years ago.  She told me they needed decorated when she gave them to me.  I left them empty, and put them in my woods.

 
I've made these wooly trees several times, for different occasions and just love them. They all turn out different, and they are so cute.  You don't need a woods for them.  They look cute on their own.  The pattern came out of a felt book, called Fa La La La Felt.  Anything you can make with felt, you can make with wool.
 I made this bee with wool, and did some felting on the wool for the stripes and the hat.  It's my own pattern.
 Here's another woolly tree (top left) that I bought at a craft show. It was this year's addition. 
 This Saturday, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm I am going to be at Groovy Girl Yarn with a wool stash.  For $5.00 you can make one of the above woolly trees.  They are great teacher gifts, hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, ornament exchange gifts, etc!  Perfect, easy and inexpensive.  Who could ask for me.  I have been hoarding wool sweaters and jackets for years.  I've been very busy this week cutting up the wool into pieces and  I will have the pieces for sale on Saturday.  I will also have felt books available for you to look at.  (I will not be selling or copying the patterns, but you will at least get a sneak preview of a book before you decide to buy it somewhere!)
The wool possibilities are endless!
 
Stop by and say HI!
