Spring is here!

It is such a delight to have the milder days and see the beautiful spring flowers emerging. Vivienne knitted a hat yesterday with her beautiful birthday yarn. Mia has been working on her Kumihimo Japanese braiding technique that she learned at Super Saturday class. I have been needle felting, one of which is the little green frog in my title photo. It will debut in the a puppet play of The Frog King with the Azalea Mountain Puppets this spring! Jasper and Mia also painted their gourd birdhouses that we grew, then hollowed and dried out last autumn. Our nature table got refreshed, with special thanks to all the lovely people who had the crafty swap with me! And the last photo is a cute little gnome boot-clip from Jasper's pen pal  in New Zealand.
