The Green Dream


Well, I went with Granny's choice for the quilt "Green Dream"

So, Granny, if you send me your address I'll pop that tea cozy in the mail right away! I didn't think about the different sizes of tea pots when I made it, sort of a duh moment for me. Live and learn? It seems to fit my Brown Betty pot okay. Not great mind you, but okay. I have a collection of tea pots even though I don't really drink the stuff. I think the pots are adorable.

So, next to the tea cozy are some of my latest needle felted wool pincushions. They have become totally addicting to me! I got my greenapple, which for some strange reason led to a cupcake, which led to a banana, which led to a strawberry............ I'm currently working on one that looks like a cinnamon roll, and I have ideas for about a bazillion others! I wonder if there is a twelve step program for pincushions too? It's totally fun though, like sculpting fiber. Okay, it actually IS sculpting fiber, but since I've never done it before I'm quite smitten!

Wow, thank you so much. I will be looking forward to the tea cozy.

Again, thank you.

THEY ROCK!!!!!! I love the fruit. Totally so realistic - you are an amazing artist! Hey, how about a hibiscus she says sheepishly with a hint of whining...I know, not a fruit, but it was the first thing i thought of when I saw the fruit. Actually, maybe I better schedule a trip up there and make myself three hibiscus to go in a vase. That sounds like a reasonable excuse for having to fly north again, doesn't it?
