Where has the time gone? Well my dearest beady is now two! Can you believe it just 2 short years ago my DH was home from Iraq on R&R and I was in the hospital having a baby. Crazy how time flies. Here is is modeling the dress that my parents sent her for her b-day. It's cake cake as she would say. Strawberry shortcake for those of you who don't speak twosey she's happy. Wait a min what is that on her feet?
look a little closer. Heck I'll just give you a close up pix. Yup that's a pair of felted slippers. I wanted to see how paton's classic wool felted. It does very well in the washing machine. I'm working on a pattern for the class I'm teaching at my Michaels for how to knit (toe up) socks. We're using wool yarn and bigger needles so they can learn the technique and then felt out any problems they may have and also have a pair of wearable slippers. I'm working on a normal size now. (for myself that is) while I type up the pattern. Here's a pix of her putting on the slipper. And that WAS the last time that I saw the slippers I'm not sure where they are now. I'm sure if I hunted I'd find them but ya know.. Why would I do that while I'm blogging? Anyways just wanted to say Happy Birthday Beady!

Happy birthday Bella!!! I can't believe it's been two years! Well, Megan turns five on Sunday and that's even harder to believe! Wow, time does fly!

Happy Birthday!

Paton's Classic Wool is my favourite thing to felt. It does it quickly and easily and makes a lovely fuzzy fabric afterwards. It rocks!

What a cute and adorabel birthday niece I have! The slippers are cute too! Can't wait to try out the pattern. I bought enough yarn for slippers for the whole family! I couldn't resist. And the Pattons SWS is sooo soo soft, and pretty too! I hope Bella had a good b-day and ate lots of sugar;)
