Sunday Morning

After spending all day outside doing yardwork yesterday I am really enjoying my Sunday Morning cup of coffee while the family sleeps in. I am a bit sore today to say the least, but the yard is ready for what summer will bring us this year. Our farmer friends delivered a heap of fresh from the farm fertilizer so all that is left is to til the garden. Of course, planting won't be done till the end of May because we still have the chance of more snow up here!

It's been a long winter and and I feel like a bear coming out of hibernation! The birds are singing and the daffidols are blooming.

Voting for the EFC APRIL CHALLENGE ends on the 28th, so if you haven't voted and would like to, please stop by and cast your vote. And don't forget to stop by the EFC Store as there are several items suitable for Mother's Day.

I have been busy creating Felted Wool Bowls this week and have played with some new techniques that have proved successful!

I have found a way to make them bigger without loosing stability. This method takes much longer to make, but well worth the effort. I will be sure to make more!

This bowl measures 8 inches wide and can be used as a fruit basket or perhaps for your rolls at dinner time. It is double knit on the sides for extra stability and will look lovely in any room.

Also new this week is this lovely pot with a 3D daisy on the front... what a lovely unique item for Mother's Day!

And here is one to help you celebrate Memorial Day and the 4th of July!

Hope you all have a great week ahead and that you will stop by my etsy and artfire shops.
