Wooden box

I found this 38 year old story book
In a thrift shop in poor condition
The images were still ok
So thought I would reclaim them into this
Sweet little wooden box
Perfect for treasures..
Just sold......

Wool Heart Tutorial

How to make a wool heart....
Find an old wool blanket
Thrift stores have lots of these
Cut out a heart shape pattern on the wool blanket
Blanket stitch around the outside with wool thread..
Add a wool loop to hang

They can hang on door knobs, be given to Aunts
A nice handmade addition to the birthday basket
Simple enough for a child to make

I made these ones this afternoon

Love and light Marie.

Blowing in the wind

Today the sun shone with a slight breeze

"I am going to dye some wool"
And I did just that...

Spring Spring Hey Ho for Spring

Though we are heading into Autumn here in New Zealand
I believe that Spring is starting to awaken in other countries..
You can have a little look at my Spring Mother with her twins.
A sure sign of Spring and new life.
