I have been spending some time each day on my crafting. I had pulled out a proddy wreath that I had begun three years ago with the intention of finishing off the interior circle and whipping it to a metal wreath frame for shaping. Then I read Gene Shepherd's wonderful book and realized that my sad wreath looked pretty lame! So I ended up making a little bird out of wool, using a simple pattern and blanket stitching it together. The base is one of the little erasers that you would use to clean off a magic erase board. It was used because it was handy, and has a nice felt bottom. I think it came out rather cute.
I bound off on the "thing" that I have been knitting. At this point it is a wonderful and extremely long scarf (7 feet)...but it is going to morph into something different. I love the wools, and they remind me of my travels. I got some from London Wul in New Brunswick, some from spinning friends in Maine and New Hampshire and Greenland, and some that I just picked up on different trips. We all have something that we bring back from vacations. For me...my souvenier is almost always wool fabric or yarn!
