Remembering an old friend on Valentine's Day

I think as we get older we begin to think about our childhood friends. It is something I have been thinking about for awhile now. So I decided to look up a dear old friend just to find that she passed away lasy Aug. 26th. Karla Phelps Hogan was only 54. As a young teen she was always fun to be with. We spent hours listening to 60's music, giggling and talking about boys. Karla always wanted to get married and have a nice husband and children. I was so pleased to find that she had a nice husband that adored her and 4 beautiful children. She was a marathon runner and won many awards. I remember she could run like the wind. Her family has made the most amazing tribute to her in her my space page. Don't put off looking up those old friends. Reach out to someone today.
Happy Valentine's Day.

Working on a NEW felting kit

A year ago I needle felted a male and female mouse. I just love them. They sit on a little corner shelf in my dining room. Yesterday I started a new set of mice. They are prototypes for my NEW and up coming felting kit. I hope to have this kit released next week. I am still struggling with the little girl mouses's skirt. The orginal one is felted. I'm thinking maybe a little wool one with needle felted flowers. I guess it will be a surprise.

Heat wave in Vt. 40 degrees today!

Have a great day.

Carded Cormo Sheep's Wool

Good Monday morning,

I am pleased to say my neice is back carding wool for me. I had a bad bout of bursitis caused from carding wool. My neice is a senior in high school. Next year she will be off to college. Here is a huge pile of gloriuos Cormo sheep's wool carded by Meaghan. Oh I will be dying this in lots of amazing colors. The Cormo is a fairly new breed in sheep. It is a cross between the Merino and the Coopworths. It is so lovely and soft because of the Merino and is a super wool for needle felting because of the Coopworths.

Have a great day.
