A Snail!

That’s who I found in my carton of raspberries as I was enjoying them at lunch time today. At first I thought it was just a shell,but I watched him (or her) or my plate and start to move. I was so surprised I made a little video to share with you. It’s not terribly eventful, but I don’t think I’ve ever watched a snail move around before.    Ahh…my computer won’t let me upload the video. I’ll see if I can make that available for you soon. Sorry, you’ll just have to imagine a small snail wiggling its sticky little feelers around in the air.

I’m finally getting over a nasty cold thats been going around. I spent a lot of the weekend resting, so I had to get caught up on grocery shopping and laundry the last few days, but now I’m feeling good. I also sewed a bunch of little wool felt friends. Again, no pictures…it’s getting dark so early now. But soon! I also decided yesterday to go vegetarian for a while. I always go back and forth with this. I’ve made the commitment for the rest of the month, and then will hopefully move into a lifestyle that is closer to vegan. I know that eating fruits and vegetables are so much better for you. I’m trying to think of food more as a source of fuel and nutrition for my body than a source of entertainment or delicious tastes. I’m thinking I’ll revisit some of my vegan cookbooks, like the veganomicon.

Ok, a preview of the little felt friends. Not a great photo, but I was hoping for some feedback. They are about 5″ tall. They are made of wool felt and stuffed with polyester fiberfill. I hand stitched them. They’re simple, but I think they’re cute. This little one is a bunny, but there is also a bear and a cat (of course.) Trying to figure out a way to make a deer. On one hand I really like how simple they are, but I also thought about trying do more detailed animals, like a wildlife set and a jungle set. I really like this wool felt, but the colors are limited too. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Hope you’re having a great week! I hope to have all kinds of new fabrics arrive in the mail this week…including one all the way from South Africa!

  1. Hi! I like the simplicity of the bunny. Details are great but ‘simple’ has its own wonderful aesthetic. How are you? I love your bags too by the way.
