My 8" pincushion

My Indiana retreat group decided it would be great fun to do a pincushion swap.  I have loved these since I bought the Wool Crazy book.  So I got my part (the base) which is supposed to be about an 8" diameter circle done.  I had a small oopsie in trimming and then added to one side and ended up with an oval.  I just love the oval so I added the witch's boot and off it went.  I won't get to see it again until May when I go to retreat.  If you want to see some of the others you can go to Laura's blog or Conni's blog or Peggy's blog or Michelle's blog.  I did discover that I have a lot of fall colored wool, but not very much of other colors so some wool shopping is in order.

Christmas Fun

I seem to be missing in action.  Just wanted to post a couple of Christmas photos.  When you are the only grandson and  great grandson and the only small child in the family, you tend to receive lots of toys.  This seemed to be the year for things with wheels.
It's nice to have several sets of wheels to choose from.
