Friday Gallery

Winner:  Deer fawn by Wendy Trevorrow

“What I appreciate most about this craft is how the form and personality of the animals, fairies, forest folk, etc. arise out of a tuft of soft wool in a way that breathes life into them, drawing forth a unique relationship with each creation.” Wendy Trevorrow

“We all enjoy watching the signs of spring emerge out of the season of winter. The ground warms, birds return, and bulbs begin coming up. This wreath makes a perfect way to count down to the spring equinox, with small blossoms added day by day (perhaps one added by each child in the family) until March 20, the first day of spring. As you observe the days lengthening, you can make your wintery wreath bloom in your home. Or, if you prefer, do it all at once and enjoy the promise of spring it brings.” Sara at Love in the Suburbs

“I created a Little Grass Child to use on our Spring Equinox table a few years ago, but she has since evolved. Taking inspiration from the Living Crafts Guardian dolls (from Living Crafts Fall 2010), I made her shape a bit more round, to fit better into little hands. The softness and warmth of the wool feels good and encourages little hands to play. I love the green roving she is created with and bought it simply for its freshness. It seems like a perfect fit for a Spring doll.” Jennifer DeWolfe at Dark Blue Dragon

“I’m making these Blossom Babies for my Kindergarteners. The children will be wet felting stones/eggs for them which will turn into spring blossom baby cradles.
It’s been a busy spring already!”
Sandy
“What I appreciate most about this is my ability to make exactly what my boys ask me to- ” make me a blue polar bear sweater, mommy, with them all in a row”. Katja Magus, Living Crafts Contributor

 

“The apple baskets are my original design. I have an affection for all things fiber- I basically learned to knit and crochet for the purpose of being able to felt pieces. I have always loved baskets for both their form and functionality.“ Leila Cook at Alice-Louise Designs

    What I love about this craft is the detail. I love the detail that goes into these creations and the total joy I see on my girls’ face while they are playing with them and going on fairy adventures! On a selfish note, I really thrive on the challenge of getting more detailed than I did on the last one… it’s a challenge to be the best I can be! :)

  2. What I love about this craft is that you can start small, if you wish, make one leprechaun, and then add to it as you have time until you have a whole ring of dancing leprechauns to decorate your nature table for March. I love the magic of nature spirits and somehow I think leprechauns are wonderful. Their tricky ways never fail to make us laugh.
