Making stuff with a view

I changed the position of my desk on sunday
to get a better view of the gorgeous Moctezuma tree outside.
The leaves mobile was made from three placecards
I kept from our Thanksgiving dinner.
It's hanging from my lamp :o)
I made myself two little purses this week.
The orange one is knit & the other is just sewn wool fabric
with appliques of wool felt, inspired by the pillow I made for my friend Ana.
They both have natural color linen liners inside.
I got the idea from Martha Stewart's Holiday Handmade Gifts Special issue

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Postcards of this little red birdie
are available in my Cafepress shop.
The tree is up and from now on
I'm guessing it will be Christmas illustrations galore :o)

Daniel's 9th. Birthday!

Even though it rained and we had to have the party indoors,
Daniel's 9th. birthday was a BIG success,
we lit up the fireplace, roasted marshmallows, the little guys played and played and played.
The kids loved their goodie bags filled with chocolate and some small little toys.
I made them the week before, out of wool felt.
A different one for each boy and girl.

Daniel LOVED the present we got for him...
I'll post his creations as soon as they dry up :o)
