More Spring whisperings invoking precious memories

More Spring Whisperings..

Finding the first wild Violets and the first Crocus --such an excitement and full of a wealth 
of memories trailing all the way back to childhood. The showing of new life after the long winter 
is always like a revelation of spirit !

Here we have a Real Log Home and two Cottontail bunnies happy on their grassy mat with tiny flowers.

Come and play with me! 

 This log home is made from wild Willow wood and pine, with eucalyptus pods and acorns. The door has lovely Forget-me-nots on it.

These lovely crocus smiled up at me on my walk , so fresh and precious, all the while in the frozen ground...they were growing:-)

Moving into Spring

Moving into Spring!

   Wintery weather is still afoot, but shrubs and trees have new buds and new life coming quickly into the landscape upon close look.  I am still doing a lot of work indoors , which you will see here. It is great to spend time with wool and paint, dying wool and creating new projects. I hope to finish a tutorial on making play mats as well as the Gnome Boatman tutorial.

Wee Folk are excited for this fun project and are offering a great amount of help as I work!
I have dyed lots purples and green for this!
This is the beginning of a little mat that I started a while back. I always try to fit in a small pond, some mushrooms and mossy rocks:-)

Here is the finished mat that already has a home to go to. Everyone is happy!

This is an enthusiastic little fox , also on his way to his new home, another good indoor project to do this time of year.
