I finished the felt butterflies for National Nonwovens' booth at spring Quilt Market. I made a second large one (12" across) and two smaller ones (6" across).
This was such a fun project. Butterflies are something I would never have thought to make without a special request. When I opened the box of felt on Friday I was nearly in tears. So much good stuff in there! Yards of soft, beautiful wool felt in all kinds of colors. And roving, too. Yay!
Spaces are filling up for my bird-making workshop at The Button Box here in Wellesley on Saturday, April 30, from 10-4 pm. We will be making the wren that is on the cover of the book and once you've completed the project you should feel ready to tackle any of the other birds that strike your fancy, or make your own bird pattern at home. I believe the cost for the workshop is $48 + materials. If you'd like to join us, give the store a call and reserve your spot 781-489-6515.
Josephine had her first taste of solid food this weekend. Some rice cereal and applesauce. I make all the baby food for my kids which I really enjoy. Everyone had some applesauce. Homemade applesauce is just so good! Josephine agrees.
