This past weekend has been a true Indian summer for us. The leaves are at their peak and the weather is HOT. 70's! I sat outside all day yesterday. The boys were not alowed back inside untill the sun went down. They made it too - lots of digging, stream splashing, leaf raking and general playing. Its great when you can take the time to be outside for that long.
I have finished needle felting three snowmen and a Tomten this weekend. Next weekend I am going to the Rhinebeck wool festival. I can't wait!! Of corse I dont need a stich of wool but that is soooo not the point.
Here are some examples of my 4/5th grade class doing their handworks bags. They really love it and are not wanting the class to end (what every teacher wants to hear).
It will be great to dive into the cross stitch next - I have one that really likes to argue his point and I love testing the waters with him.
