I have been helping Jenna learn how to felt, she is so excited and loves this ancient art. We have been felting butterflies for our Easter tree. Tonight Erin showed an interest and so Jenna showed Erin how to felt too! It has been a wonderful experience!
Today Jenna and Erin brought out all of our unwashed sheep’s wool and started to wash it and dried it in the sun. They are going to card it tomorrow and then we will attempt to dye it naturally. In the photo you can see some of the butterflies that we have felted with coloured fleece. They are sitting on one of our Queensland Blue organic pumpkins that we harvested about three weeks ago.
We are reading all of the Little House Books and last night we finished Farmer Boy, much to everyones great sadness, it is the most amazing book and we all loved reading it and didn’t want it to ever end. Every night at around 7-30 pm, I sit down in the lounge and everyone piles onto the couch and I read aloud to our children. They absolutely love this and tonight we started the 3rd book in the Laura Ingalls series, Little House on the Prairie. I think we will read them all and then again, we just love them so much!!
