…really do flock together!  I spent the evening yesterday watching the Dancing finals and creating these treasures.  I am glad that Helio won.  He was such a sweetie and great dancer, too. 


I cut the felted wool into strips and then wrapped the strips around Styrofoam balls.  I used straight pins at each end to keep them in place.  Then, they were embellished with beads, an acorn cap hat and a snowflake.  I added a bit of striped felted wool for the scarf.  I need to scour the yard to see if I can find some small sticks for the arms for each. 

I like that they ended up a bit wonky depending on how the balls fit best together.  That is part of their charm. 

 Then I moved onto this Seussical Inspired tree. 


The base was covered with the green felted wool a few days ago which was pinned and glued.  Lace garland was coiled around it.  Last night, I added the beads and the jazzy tree topper. 

If you live in Richmond, this Friday is the Grand Illumination  at the James Center.  It is lovely to see all the reindeer (hundreds and hundreds) all lit up in white lights.  My favorite part is searching for the one reindeer that they give the red nose.  If you are in the area be sure to check it out.

It is hump day and the weekend is in sight!
