A few weeks later I met a woman who asked us to come to the County Fair to demonstrate needle felting. Mind you, we'd had about two hours of experience with this craft.
But we went, and we had a good time. Kate was in town, and we made her come with us. She made a purple dog as I recall... or was it blue?? With polka dots???
Since then, I've taught a couple of friends how to make a felted dog, since I'm such an "expert" now.
And I made a kitty for Halloween...
Notice the pumpkin that looks like it's been around for a while? I made that when I was five. And can you see that cute spoon in the front? Nan made that- she made one for each of us in our quilt group. It's a thrifted spoon with a wire-wrapped/beaded/adorable handle.
An antique postcard, dated 1912, is there on the left...it's adressed to "Master Kenneth (can't make out the last name), and the note is signed, "Love from Aunt Flossie". I love stuff like that. All this is displayed on a cake plate in the kitchen so I can enjoy all of my little treasures while I'm cooking.
