Today I was in the mood for crafting, I have many projects that I am excited to make throughout this December. I was in the mood to needle felt today. I have some little Christmas elves I want to make, but halfway through felting the core, I decided to check how much red wool I had, and as it turned out I had enough red wool to make only a tiny toadstool. So I took a short break and went online to place an order for a quarter pound of red wool- I order a lot of my felting supplies from Weircrafts.com. Then I got back to my felting and decided to make a Nativity.
I am looking forward to bringing this Nativity along to Sunday school this weekend for our Christmas story lesson. Here's how my Nativity turned out.
I may make some animals, and eventually I would even like to add shepherds, wise men, and an angel. I so enjoy needle felting!
Tonight I will be attending our town's Singing Christmas Tree, I am really looking forward to hearing my daughter's concert choir preform, as well as all of the other choirs in town. Before then however, my daughter has just informed me that in health class they were assigned their "baby" egg, so we must fashion him a carrier so I can "eggsit" baby Lorcan tonight while she is preforming. I look forward to hearing about what lessons the teacher has in store for this unit.
This is also the weekend we put up our tree, I am excited to get out all of my ornaments, and have a fun evening decorating our tree. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
April these are lovely, the colors are gorgeous. Enjoy your weekend, kellyReplyDelete
