I have some finishes to show you - it is about time! I finished these wool pincushions over the weekend. They are filled with sand and have a nice, heavy feel to them. The two sheep were purchased from Brenda at Pumpkin Patch Primitives. She sent me a kit in wool felt and 100% felted wool so that I would be able to see the difference. The 100% wool is so much nicer to work with but more expensive. The wool felt looks nice and is less expensive so I can make more of those! LOL. The rabbit is from a Fons and Porter magazine project. I found some old scraps of wool that I had forgotten about in my stash. I bought them years ago for a project that I never did. I put some beads on the rabbit and I think it looks very cute!
The next photos are from my garden. My angel trumpets, brugmansia, are glorious this year! These come back every year and bloom in late summer. I only wish they would bloom earlier. Why do they have to wait until school starts and I don't get to enjoy them as much? The same for my fig trees. They only have ripe figs after school starts! I don't feel like making fig preserves after school has started and so they end up being bird food.
We are still missing Claws. I thank you all for your kind comments on his untimely passing.
