Needle Felting Two by Two

Just sharing what I have been working on this past week. I realized I was working in twos. It was hard to transition back into needle felting after being gone this last time but now I am poking furiously:0.

New - dragonflies

Poor Owls - don't have their legs yet.

A Little Fairy Princess Turns Two

We just returned from a very busy two week vacation. One of the highlights was being able to celebrate our granddaughter Carissa's second birthday.

I finished her crown!

The flowers are crocheted with glass bead centers. I sewed
on lots and lots of ribbon and lace for the back closure.
It is time to Celebrate in the Fairy Glen.

My daughter made the banner - one for each of her kids.
Isn't she talented!

Our little Fairy Princess is arriving.

She likes what she sees.

Her brother is ready to help her blow out the candle.

Beach Walk and Sea Glass

Considering we live just a short walk to the beach, I have to confess we don't spend enough time there. But when we do, we always look for sea glass.
Isles of Shoals
It was so clear it looked like we could toss a rock and hit it but
it is about nine miles away.

Looking for sea glass

We were very successful
