A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

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:
Druidess Bunting
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:
Cleaned Corriedale Romeny & Rambouillet X Fleece
with a small trace of vegetation and lanolin…the Rambouillet side must be the dominant bleed?
Cleaned & Flicked Romney Fleece
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!
