Plum trees and Daffodils are Blooming in my neck of the woods!

Another vibrant playmat full of joy for the season of new growth!

Pinecone Fairies and Elves enjoy the new playmat immesely! Making these is easy and in the Pinecone Fairy tutorial page on my blog here. The vibrant colors are primarily all dyed at home with mixes of the non-toxic dyes I have.

 The beauty of the mat are the lively colors and the three dimensional quality. Adding elements of water, plants and things one finds in the woods. The wool is very thick , about 3/8th of an inch ,  making it very sturdy.

The over view is always fun, like looking down from riding on the back of a dragon fly!

This little mat is inspired by the deep woods, with lots of moss, fragrant violets, forget-me-nots, a pool of water surrounded by mossy rocks and a mossy stump.

This little Tree House bucket was a project made at the same time as the mat. Two little chippies are cozy here. The little half door easily lifts out.

  1. I have just come across your blog while searching for ideas with pine cones on the web. We collected loads of cones, acorns and other nuts I don't know the name of, today. Your craft is so adorable, every page I've looked at so far I have wished I was a child again! I will definitely come back and get inspired. So lovely, thanks for sharing all your work, especially your tutorials. Caroline
