I spent last Friday having lunch with Futuregirl and Kuky Ideas
I got some Japanese Crafts books (my first) and we ate crepes in a paper cone.
These are lovely ladies and Kuky brought her family which made for some fantastic baby games!
it is so nice to meet blog friends face to face and have them be as charming and delightful as you imagined.
Futuregirl was on vacation all the way from PHILLY, PA. That is FA-AR. So, it was extra great to see her. Plus , I think she was my very first virtual friend. You know, the first to email and not just comment, the first to share more about her life than what project she just finished. She's good like that. Friendly ... generous.. and talented.
Then Home again and was I ever suprised, the Wrap Skirt Tutorials I did for Sew, Mama, Sew was featured on the Craftzine blog... That was a thrill! And i can count on Knit Sonya to make sure I didn't miss it.! Finger on the Pulse of the Blogosphere.
Over the last month and a half I have taken a couple of needle felting classes (one from Knit Sonya and the other one from this lady ) and that led me to make these.
Fluffy stuff. I love that they balance on their pipecleaner feet. Needle felting is my first fibercraft. I have already bought more wool.It has it's own plastic box in the craft cave... a big one.
I have done some thrift-craft too, using the thrifted embroidery transfers to embellish the thrifted linen pillow case with redwork.
I got the vintage laundry basket at the thrift store for 6.50.. definitely my score o' the week. ( But the Krups ice cream maker for 6.00 wasn't a bad deal either.)
I sold a bunch of my goose eggs to a shop called Iron Dog Antiques in historic Niles, CA... and they already sold three of them right back out of there. Flattered, I am sure!
I am making ready for the Big 40th birthday party here and so am cleaning and cooking instead of crafting for the "C is 4 Craft" Fair in Santa Cruz on June 9th. Well, I am trying to clean.. but I keep finding little crafty things to do too.
Come visit me there!

Had some super sad news too. An old friend from high school died in a mototrcycle accident. Scooter Meyerhoff didn't just have the greatest name in the universe, he was the kind of person that you thought would go on forever. He was charming and gregarious and larger than life. He was all hugs and smiles, when most teens were moody and distant. He was a great friend.
The world got just a little less sunny last Sunday.
Oh and I know I am tagged for the 7 things but I am not finding the right moves for my interpretive dance for that one.. I will do it soon, I swear!!!!!!! I will not flake!
