Mary Poppins

She stands about 6″ tall, and made completely out of wool roving, from the flowers in her hat to those turned-out shoes. We finally saw the new movie. But even our seven-year-old leaned over about halfway through it and said, “I still like the first one the best.” There is some alchemy to that first one for sure!

This little snowy scene is made completely out of wool roving, even the little bit of smoke curling out of the chimney.

Here’s a quick roundup of some projects I made this year— each one starting out as a simple little tuft of wool.

Cookies with my favorite baking buddy. Cutout cookies are so messy.

But totally worth it!!

Olivia came up with the cat cookie— she used the star cutter for the triangle ears with the circle cutter. Creative cat. 👏

Here’s our makeshift mantel with a needle-felted pom pom garland. My mom made that sequined felt Santa stocking—it’s the same one I ran to every Christmas morning as a child to take down. Always with a little jingle from the bell on the toe. When Olivia was born, I sewed her name on it.❤️

So what does a mini Vinnie lab, an owl and a mustache have in common? Absolutely nothing, but I sure loved making these. 😂 Little handmade ornaments for my nephews and niece, AJ, Jerod and Tara.

Also “Why am I in a walnut shell?” owl tags. 😂
