Now that the Gardens are DONE
(well my new list is getting pretty long...but just a lot of little jobs...)
Thread has been flying!
3 new puppet are listed in www.injoyecocutie.etsy.com
Moose ~ Rose ~ Monarch Butterfly
I thought I was done making puppets. I started making them back when I tried to sell handweaving at craft coops and fairs 20+ years ago. Weaving is a tough to sell so I made puppets to make my rent at the craft coop. My patterns have been stored away in the attic for years. When I opened my EcoCutie Shop they started to call me. The truth is I love puppets! Not just making them but playing with them too.
Mr. Moose is a totally new design this fall. Have you ever hear of the book, If You Give a Moose a Muffin, by Laura Numeroff? (love this book...read it many times!) Well, if you give a fiber gal a fleece she makes a Moose Puppet. Back in September at the Common Ground Fair I swore I would NOT buy a fleece...I have enough stuff and enough to do! But then I found this beautiful, to me, 5 pound Cotswold yummy brown fleece for $3.00 a pound!! I couldn't pass it up. It has nice light brown tips that I noticed matched this light brown felt I had recently aquired....well I saw a MOOSE! It took 3 prototypes to get him right...I just love him. He is a bit of a ham too!
Puppets Make Great Tree Toppers!
Add rose oil to the mouth of Ms. Rosetta then she won't have stamen breath ~ LOL
Really, it is another way to give a roses to someone!
Not all the Monarch Butterflies have flown South!
