Crafting glimpses

A gallery of crafting moments from my WA visit

centred on wool craft

I got my sister started on her felting journey

it was delightful to share some of my skills

we made her baby a playmat and some funny mutant animals

like the wombat sheep

inspired by the book

A Felt Farm

I made Cedar a playmat with roads on it for this wheel obsessed boy

a success and great for travelling

meanwhile other children getting soapy

and happy making colored balls

{a great place to start wet felting for yourself and kids}

and having nests made for small toys

on lemons this time

children weaving on braiding discs

and needle felting dolls and butterflies

and little fingers doing fine embroidery

and turning it into pincushions

and little animals cut out of fabric and made into 3d toys

and more

and sewing and having a sister for guidance and support just like when we where younger

and more

and knitting like crazy and discovering the ease and fun and singing

with the windy wool thing {umbrella swift and winder}

which takes your big skein and makes wonderful neat balls

I honestly could not figure out how Godmother wound such neat balls by hand!

der…

and this moment which cracks me up because i am so happy with this funny gadget

and have a vine wrapped around my head and giant mongolian slippers on

and I’ve just been singing with my four year old niece while she winds the winder

and looks up at me with fun in her eyes

thankyou mama for bringing me up in a crafty home

now i can make my own crafty home
