Elizabeth came to me this morning with one of those paper fortune tellers. You remember the ones you made in elementary school with the numbers and colors, and you would open and close the paper until ultimately the fortune you had written under the flap was revealed? My fortune said "You will make a felt pie." Hmmm...coincidence? I think not. But I humored her and made a blueberry pie for her to share with her froggy friends.
Then, finally, she decided to show a bit of interest in the needle felting pen I bought for her and needle felted her first project...
a wedge of cheese.
I also finished working on an Easter hare for Finn's basket. He's my first knitted animal, and I thought he turned out quite cute. The directions came from All Year Round. Seriously, who knew about this book and didn't share that information with me? This book has wonderful ideas for celebrating the various seasons and holidays of the year. I know the whole family will get much enjoyment out of the projects we're discovering in here.
Elizabeth spent part of her day watching this adorable movie that we found on Netflix. A charming story and sweet characters...Elizabeth asked at the end if they had made a sequel yet. Why can't more kids' movies be like this and less pop-culture-y with silly plots and shallow characters? Truly magical. Next up is Miss Potter, and we're looking forward to that one as well.
