I made a little wool ball. I still need to work some stuff out to make it tighter. Not the whole thing felted all the way, but I have no clue how to fix it. I made it by taking some wool yarn, cutting it into short pieces, tying the middle to make a pom-pom. Then I washed it on hot inside a knee sock.
Beans~ Ahhh, your boy is getting big. We just bought bunk beds for the boys. Our bed is getting a bit crowded with all 6 of us in there!
I just had to say Ethan is a DOLL!! But you knew that didn't you. Love the pictures. What a beautiful woman you are!!! That smile is fantastic. That birth tub is so cool looking. Way nicer than the blow-up one I used for my two.
Back to crafting subject. I am having a blast with the packages I am putting together. Andrea, close your eyes again if you want this to be a surprise.
Have any of you read "The Magician's Nephew" (the first book in the Narnia series) ? The uncle has magic rings. Green and yellow. The yellow one takes you to the "Wood Between the Worlds" Just touch the yellow ring and you are there. The wood's is full of small ponds. Each pond is a gateway to another world. But you first have to put on the green ring. Put on the green ring and jump into any of the ponds. It will take you to another world. When you want to "go home" you just touch the yellow ring and you will be back in the woods where you can jump into the 'home pond' (with green ring on) that will take you back home.
SO, I just finished reading this book to my children. I loved it and could not stop thinking about what a wonderful idea it was. Rings, ponds to different worlds, so cool. So my dress-ups package for Andrea's son is going to be based on this idea. I have a small satchel and inside is two rings (made with felt) one green and one yellow. I also made 4 ponds. Funny shaped blue cloths that can be tossed on the ground to look link ponds.
I will type out a little story/explanation that she can read to her ds so he will know what it is all for. And he will get a few simple costumes to help him blend in with whatever world he will wish to visit.
Now I hope she meant it when she said that he would like anything "even girly" Because one of the ponds happens to take you to a fairy world.
