The New Arrival

The New Arrival......
It was very cold
Starlight had sprinkled glitter all over the ground
Some had landed on the toadstools
It covered the new babes head
Giving special meaning to the saying
"Babies come from the stars"
Father and Mother snow were so happy

Seasons greetings to one and all.

A great little idea
Make glitter wool enchanted acorns
Add a Blue wool Winter child
Paint the lid
And you have a little Winter treasure gift for a child

The Blue Fairy

The Blue fairy
I made two of these
Funnily enough blue is a color that I find hard to use
I am a warmer person than the coolness of blue
But she is rather pretty, I made her in softer blue hues.

An easy way to make wool wall hangings

Is to use wool place mats as the background
Wool only works best when used along side wool
Needle felt blue wool for the sky
Green for the grass
Add a rainbow
Use thread, to sew on pre made gnomes
Turn the top over and slip a piece of wood in
Add some wool yarn to hang with
And you have it
Easy as one, two, three
Love and light  Marie

It is a wise farmer
Who recognizes the importance of trees
The whole field had been cultivated
Ready for Spring planting

Not accepted

There was a time when  a lot of people  were wanting to know how I do my wool art
I thought I would write a book about it
I had sent my proposals off to lots of editors
Lots of reject letters later
I have decided to give it a rest
One can always self publish
I have enjoyed the experience and hard work of putting a proposal together
I am not un happy about it at all
Some times things are meant to be

Summer Berry Children

Out in my berry patch their appeared a little berry child.
She looked so sweet with her golden hair and her green garden hat.
She loved the summer sun and watching the berries get juicy and ripe.
She had a lovely big berry belly.
When the children came into the garden she smiled at them.
