More fun with felt

Just a friendly reminder - if you comment anonymously, 
I won't publish it.  Recently I've been getting
some rather 'interesting' spam.
AND...
Don't forget that I now respond to your comments
right here in the comment section so don't
forget to check back!

Over the weekend I played with more felt and came up with these additions to the shoebox of fun I'm making...





I promise, the box will soon be full and
I'll be past this phase and back to the
regular mumblings!

- Have a peek at the amazing work done by THIS artist!!  I can't imagine it.  (Be sure to check out her 'Work' galleries).

- THIS is a handy chart to have if you are attempting to crochet a flat circle.

- Have a look at the amazing work done by THIS artist!  And THIS artist as well.

- THIS is so cute!  Perfect for a little one for summer.  

- If you're planning on giving money to your graduate, perhaps some of THESE fun presentation ideas might catch your eye.

Today's quote..."When I clean my sewing room:  1% cleaning; 29% complaining, and 70% playing with stuff"

    1. We'll be there when our little one opens the shoebox, so perhaps we'll get to play chef too.

    1. I'm finding the patterns/ideas on the internet - Pinterest is definitely a treasure trove! I can't imagine the patience to stitch onto leaves....amazing.

  5. Loving your no-cal food, Mary Anne. And the first link... on my. I was intrigued. Then confused (are the leaves real, I asked?). I dug deeper and yes they are! Now I'm amazed. And a tad confused again. And intrigued anew at what people find to be creative with. And what motivates them. Makes me think I should step up my creative pursuits a bit.

    1. No cal food - I can definitely use some more of that! At first I didn't believe the leaves were real either...amazing to think of how she does it. Wish I could be a fly on her wall and watch her process!

    1. Well, hopefully it doesn't look TOO delicious! Don't want a little boy tempted to actually try to eat it!!

  7. Delicious food!! I met Hollis Chatelain years ago in Houston, Texas. Her 'Blue Men' won an award that year. It's an amazing piece.

    1. Hopefully our littlest grandson will have fun playing with them - and we'll be there when he opens them so perhaps we'll get to play with them too!

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
