For day nine we are departing from the animal theme to add a bit of habitat.
Okay so this may not be the most exciting feltie ever, but it was really fun to make. I got to indulge my love of French knots and experiment embroidering on three dimensional felt (something I want to do a lot more of in the future).
This past weekend we took a walk in the nature park. It was snowy and icey, completely deserted and absolutely wonderful. Walking in the woods and along windy country roads is one of my favorite things to do. All last spring in Vermont we spent hours almost every day taking long strolls. This little vignette reminds me of the mushrooms and toadstools that carpeted the mossy forest floor there. I'm just silly enough to imagine all sorts of good magic and goings-on happening under those toadstools—little mousie cotillions and the like. Hmmmmm...too many fairy tales and too much children's literature in my life maybe?
At any rate it's a peaceful scene (and if nothing else will give some of these woodland felties I've been making a place to rest their head and maybe even something to eat if they get hungry). Okay yes...definitely too many fairy tales in my world.
Have a great day! I'll see you on day 10! Until then...
