Felting

I've been busy getting ready for Christmas but I did try my hand at making felted balls today. I've wanted to try it for a while now and decided to try after reading Deborah Boscher's blog. She made some felted ornaments. She had a link to a tutorial on Judy Coates Perez's blog that was very helpful. I used some wool roving that I recieved last Christmas from one of the Fiber Divas. Now I just need to add some embellishment to them.
Today, we went and cut down our Christmas tree. We usually don't wait this long to get it but with everyones schedule, we couldn't go before this. Now to make room for it! It seemed to have GROWN alot since we tagged it not too long ago. I did ask Gary if he was sure he wanted one that big and he was insistant. We do have a cathedral ceiling so the height doesn't matter. It's just a matter of what we are going to do with the furniture to make room for it!! We already moved out my ironing board.
Gary was busy tonight making alot of carmel corn. Every year the list of people that want it, grows!! It is SOOOOOO YUMMY!!!!!!!! I've been busy making more homemade bread and treats for the kids. Since we don't have a big family, I like to spread things out over the holidays instead of just cooking a lot for Christmas day. I have a couple of new recipes I want to try.
