Today I took a class to make a Wool Feather Tree !!!

Wool & Dye Works in Florence , MA. offered this great class today. It was so much fun , we each had a piece of wool to use for our trees, each one was a little different color. One of the gals used Fall colors &  we all Loved how it turned out. I can't wait to make more, they just look so cute !!! Here are pictures from our class, our teacher was Barbara.

This was our teacher's sample tree....

Here we could choose the color wool we wanted to use...so many beautiful colors !!!

Barbara was a great teacher !!!!

My friend Kathy, from VT rounded up a few of her friends to take the class too....
We are busy chatting away & laughing.....
We look so serious don't we ????

We all Loved this tree....perfect fall colors  !!!! So pretty !!!!

Here is my tree !!!!! I just LOVE IT !!!!!!

Here is a picture of some of the other trees the gals made. I wish I had taken a group picture.....it was a great day spending it being creative, meeting new people and sharing stories.  What a wonderful shop Wool & Dye Works is in their new location, beautiful wools to choose from & they are so friendly & helpful.

Things to do while being snowed in !

Yesterday we got 3 inches of snow.....it was light fluffy snow & looked so pretty .
This morning we woke up another snow storm, but this is how it looks after getting 10 inches or maybe even a foot !  So what to do when you are snowed in ???? Bake cookies & rug hooking !!!!  I got this Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Pecan Cookies recipe from oldgreymare.BlogSpot.....they are Yummy !!!
In the fall I won this Great hooked rug pattern from Star Rug Company, Maria had a fun give-a-way , I just finished it yesterday & Love it !!! It was fun to do , I had never done the bead stitch before, but it was easy & I love how it looks !
I also won another pattern from rugsandpugs.blogspot......it is a pattern I have admired for a long time. I started hooking this yesterday & today and I can't put it down !
I'll go out and shovel a wider path for my little guy and come in for another cookie & a cup of hot chocolate ! Even though, I have had it with this cold winter, today is just one of those great snow days to stay home, sweet home !!!
