feeling crafty this weekend…

February 10, 2008

Spent the morning making felt puppets with three of my favorite apprentices, Lia, Emma, and Maia.  Their lovely Grandma Libby, gave us some inspiration in the form of The Quiltmaker’s Gift.

Emma’s imagination conjured up jump-roping puppets.

The crafty bug lingered well past this morning session…and by early evening I actually had the urge to cook…(those of you who know me best, know that cooking is not one of my strong points…and it has been on VERY rare occasions that I have actually wanted to attempt a recipe…)

So inspired was I by the asparagus recipe found here, that I went to great lengths to prepare it…and by jolly it actually turned out like the picture…see below…

Life is good…
