My kids have officially outgrown the traditional Easter egg hunt. Outside of the traditional sunrise service, church activity, and spending Easter breakfast together, we didn’t do anything out of ordinary. I think it’s time to start a new tradition that the kids will enjoy long after they have grown up and left home. So, I am thinking an Easter scavenger hunt may be a great way to spend a family day…next year. What is your family tradition with grown children?
At spinning demonstration earlier today, I learned that my friend Lauren had her baby girl, Measha last Thursday–8 pounds 4 ounces! Instead of a baby surprise jacket and matching booties intended, I really wanted to make some type of swaddle wrap blanket that would be easy get Measha into and bundle her up with. My designing juice kicked in and took over:
More about this when finished
…it will be hand-painted in glorious colors once off the needle.
Here are the cleaned fleeces I prepped for the demonstration early this afternoon:
with a small trace of vegetation and lanolin…the Rambouillet side must be the dominant bleed?
lovely batch of Romney tip-flicked locks
…gifted it all to my giving friend Kristin
…no one gave them a spin though–still, it was good to show. The kids just loved the fluff and squishy feeling. Though exhausting, it was nice to share the passion and I am thrilled to discover some natural spinners in the group:D
What did you make today?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
