I decided that next year Graysen should have her own Christmas tree. With her own ornaments.
Since she lives in such a beautiful place and is bound to be an outdoor girl, I thought of her when I saw these little felt ornaments.
I love kits. Everything you need is right there.
So this gloomy afternoon, I got a cup of coffee and got started.
First thing was cutting out the patterns and tracing them onto the felt.
And cutting out the shapes. Sometimes I like mindless projects like this, although I did read the instructions first.
It's slow going but really relaxing, and with the sequins and embroidery touches, they will be pretty cute.
If this turns out nice and I enjoy it, I'll look for some similar ones to do, maybe some more woodland animals
We discovered a few months ago that if you're a member of Amazon Prime, you get to download free movies and books to watch or read on the computer and Kindle or Nook. I was surprised at the number of choices and put half a dozen on my "Watch List."
I just came back to post that I watched the first of these movies, "A Map of the World." I had never heard of it, but it got 4-1/2 stars from Roger Ebert. It was hard to watch at times, and I really considered abandoning it in the first 15 minutes. I'm glad I stayed.
I discoveredsome old "Fawlty Towers episodes, and we watched one this afternoon.
They're still just as funny as they ever were. John Cleeseias excellent as Basil, really in anything, just a good actor.
My favorite is Manuel or Man-Well. I hope these links open. We can't stop laughing at his throwing the phone.
I always feel exhausted after I watch 30 minutes of this show, but it brings back such good memories of enjoying it so long ago.
