New Angels

I found some different pale green wool in my back cupboard, it is all crinkly 
Not like my normal soft fluffy wool
I thought it might lend itself to red haired angels
They turned out rather well, I thought

Slow Learner

When I went to school, over forty five years ago
The teachers were not so kind and understanding as they are today
I was told I was useless, bad,  no good , and slow
This was written on my report card
I only enjoyed   Art, Drawing and History
The rest I could not get
In those days if you did not "get it" straight away
You were left behind
I was left behind, because I was a slow learner
The classes were huge, the teachers smoked in class
And the ruler would wack across your knuckles for the slightest reason
I am so pleased that the system has changed
Personally all my learning came for me after I left school
Which I left at 16 years old
Deemed a failure by the teachers with no qualifications

A mystery

A few weeks ago, when I was away from home this lovely book came in the mail
It was opened by someone else and all documentation was lost
Who gave me this lovely book, it is a mystery
It might be related to me giving wool angels last month to people who needed them
If it is you who sent it, I would love to thank you.

Unveiling ideas

When I sit down to create, the idea is in my head what it is going to look like
But the wool often dictates how things will flow
How colors overlap and develop
It is very much like painting, a new color emerges and creates form and beauty
Always an exciting time and I love this unfolding story

Little Elves

This weekend I created these little Elves

I thought they might need a warm white wrap, 
As it is going to get  real cold soon in the North Pole
They can hang from the tree on gold thread
Or be placed on the mantelpiece with candles and holly

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The view from my window

This is the view from the window where I sit and create
Being Spring in New Zealand now,  the blossom is everywhere
I love it when the wind blows softly and the petals fall on the fresh green grass
Blossom fairies are ever so busy flying around
Some even flew in through the window to say hello

Creating never ceases

A few years ago I introduced my elderly neighbor to the world of Waldorf
I would bring her swapped items and needle felted creation's that I had made
She became enchanted by them
Yesterday I popped in and saw her two completed dolls
Handmade by her, I took a few photos
Creating never ceases, not at any age, and she is a fair age.
