I'm happiest with a mudroom filled with wintery things. Handmade stuff makes me happy. I have purposely not learned how to play bridge, so that I will have something deliciously fun to learn in my golden years. I live in, and love, Belfast, Maine.
For V's birthday, I took one of her imaginary animal drawings to make a softie. Using some colored wool, I needle felted it into shape and then did a blanket stitch to make a small pillowy animal for her.
This animal is named Stripey. It eats stripes, drinks polka dots, and is the protector of all jungles. How could I not try and bring it to life a bit?
