Rainy Day

Another rainy day here in the Midwest.  What's a girl to do?  Craft something of course.  I did this beautiful set of acorns yesterday and they sold over night.  Guess I'll get busy making another set.  Hopefully today I won't draw blood.  Needle felting is an ancient craft in which you repeatedly stab wool roving over and over again with a very sharp barbed needle, up to 1,000 times, to mold the wool into shapes.  Unfortunately yesterday, while making acorns, I looked up at the television, while stabbing, and plunged the barbed needle right through my thumb.  Lesson learned.

If anyone wants a set of these colors, let me know through a comment or Etsy convo, I sell under the name stitchcrafts, and I can make you a set.  $20 plus shipping of $3.00.

Happy and safe crafting!
