Happy New Year!

We are staying home tonight,we haven't went out in years. That is just fine with me. We had a new furnace installed in our house, so it is nice and warm here! This morning I finished this rug. It is a Tonya Robey-Mad Hen Primitives, book one.I really like it! Hoping to start hooking another rug and just relax! Happy New Year!

Wool Tree Info

Christmas is getting closer... Last week I learned to make wool trees. Alot of you have been asking about directions. If you haven't went to this blog she has instructions. These are the trees we made. Rhonda's on the far left, mine in the middle, Becky's on the far right. I like them all. After I learned how to make the smaller one, I just improvised making the bigger one. Have fun making them!

Wool Feather Trees

This week I learned how to make wool feather trees. I got together with a couple of my friends, Rhonda and Becky (missed you Stacie). I didn't know that it took 4 hours to complete a small one. It took 4 hours but, it was completely finished though. I told them I wouldn't make another one. Well, this is the second one I've made. I bought this Santa from Arnett's and the bigger tree looks better with it than the smaller one.
This is the first one I made. Both are made from wool that I hand dyed. The snow man is from Arnett's also.

Friday was an awful day for our country. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Feel so bad for the kids, teachers and their families. I feel really bad for all the people who have to investigate the scene... AWFUL!!! It is unreal. God Bless them all!!
