Baby hedgehogs! and birdlings

There were only three for my class on wednesday night, but as usual we had a great time, and just check out these cute little hedgies chatting among themselves! 
At the end of class I demonstrated how to make a little nest
and this morning I had an e-mail from Lynnette (on the right in this photo) with pictures of the lovely little bird in a nest she made after class.  this needle felting thing is so addictive!

Cat Lady

My daughter just returned from her exchange program in France and I have to admit that I only got round to cleaning the bathrooms two days before she returned.
     I had those big plans for spring, going on autumn, cleaning that never materialized, and the grand organizational plan also didn't happen. I did host a craft night at my house and did some illustration and took care of a complete medical check up that I've been putting off for years.  I refuse to beat myself up for not getting more done, I want to, but I refuse.
      After all, left to my own devices I learned a few revealing if unflattering truths about my little self, things like..... I will eat corn from the can rather than cook. I can't get rid of craft stuff even if it's been unused for years. I have a book hoarding problem, I hardly ever make my bed,. I talk to myself in public! and this is the worst... I talk to the cats, I have two, Daisy and Bijou. I'm just pointing out that there are two just encase you think I hoard cats too. I was brushing Daisy yesterday (who sheds enough fur to make a whole new cat every other day) and Camille and I happened to make eye contact as I was warbling on in that singsongy voice to the CAT! and I suddenly saw what she must see, DEMENTED CAT LADY! nattering away to an animal who, lets face it, only tolerates me because I feed it.
     Now don't get me wrong, I like to be a considered a little odd, but cat lady? that just isn't the kind of odd I was going for. I believe I had something more romantic and artsy in mind.  I may need to get out more.
