I got a wool table mat kit at the Woolgathering last year and started it as a Christmas gift for my mom - because we were in the middle of getting the house we kind of bypassed Christmas but I showed my mom a picture of what I was making and told her it was in progress! Lame, I know. I did finally finish it up though - in time for Mother's Day!
She's big into this primitive kind of stuff - it's not really my bag, but I did have a good time working with the nice felted wool! Boy, this picture really makes the unevenness of my stitches stand out - not cool! I backed it with some calico.
And, I can't stop talking about the wild turkey we've seen in the back yard a couple times now! Isn't that wacky? apparently not so much, when I talk to other people who've seen tons of them, but I have never seen one in my life - much less on my own property! It's a crappy shot because it's as zoomed in as my camera would go - it was really far out there! I've decided to call her Janet. maybe that's going too far.
