Needlefelting-Who Knew?

 Almost two years ago I was visiting my daughter Liz and her hubby Steve in N. Carolina. One of my favorite things to do when we are together is to go to the book store, sip carmel machiattos and read magazines. That's when I found an article about putting a wool design onto a wool scarf with a special type of needle and I was totally mystified. So of course I went online and found a whole new world. A special thanks to so many people who share their knowledge and time so generously. I have done a lot of crafting over the years but this one (and crocheting) is totally ADDICTIVE! I thought I'd share a then and a now picture.
Fascinated with birds from the beginning!

Getting a little creative.

I remember when...

Yes, I'm dating myself badly but I remember when microwaves were the new thing and I said, 'Why would we ever need a microwave'.  And I continued to be sooo predictable through the years with the cell phone, cable TV, computers, email and even blogs. And yet each one of those has become a part of my every day experience. So I am sure some day in the future I will be looking back and wondering why I waited so long to have my own BLOG.
