Needle Felting

I did other things too.

Mother’s Day was a busy day for me! After spending the afternoon with my friends, I went home and did some planting with my kiddos…

The kids planted seeds.

They helped plant rosemary, basil and mint.

Also, since my husband was out of commission, I made them take me to dinner.

Then we went home and started some craft projects. I decided to do some more needle felting.

Later on I will turn these into little fobs that they can hang on their backpacks.

My Mother’s Day…

Monday, May 9th, 2011 | fiber, Needle Felting | 1 Comment

I can’t say I did much Mother’s Day type stuff on Sunday, but I did try something new.

My girlfriends had asked me if I wanted to go to yarn shop I hadn’t been to before in South Pasadena called Abuelita’s. Imagine our surprise when once we got there we found it closed for Mother’s Day! Eek!

Plan B ended up saving the day, with a trip to a place called Zinnia’s and some antiquing and used book shop browsing. I ended up picking up a few things for projects. We also stopped at a cereal bar and grilled cheese place for lunch where for the first time ever I decided to try my hand at needle felting.

And thus, a new addiction had begun.
