Pond Duckie Applique

We are blessed to live in an area that has a million... perhaps a wee bit of an exaggeration... lakes and ponds. Also, we live in an area that has 4 very distinct seasons. And, as if that wasn't all good enough, our area has a great many parks and wildlife areas that affords us boundless opportunities to enjoy the changing seasons with the wildlife.

One of favorite pass times in spring is to observe all the wildlife babies making their way in the world. From the antics of the baby squirrels scampering throughout our yard, to the baby ducklings swimming after their mommies on every lake and pond, we get a daily cuteness overload!

To me, nothing says spring as much as a newly hatched brace of ducklings. Today, we are sharing our Pond Duckie Applique. As always, it was sized to fit a 6" x 6" block, but it can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. Hope it brings a little spring into your step :)

Toys to Make for Baby's Easter Basket

FREE PATTERNS from Wee Folk Art

Although there is a virtual cornucopia of free patterns on Wee Folk Art that would be perfect to make and tuck into baby's Easter basket, we picked out a few of our favorites. Of course, these aren't limited to just babies, but their size and simplicity makes them perfect for your smallest wee one!

Probably my favorite toy here is the Nubbie Doll. These have been a great hit with all the wee ones in our family. They have all the features of a soft blankie, only they are small enough so babies don't get tangled in them. They have satin bindings which little fingers love to rub and nubs at the end of the arms to chew on. Little Lady and Little Guy have about 8 apiece. They are their favorite snugglers, go to bed with them each night, and 2 or 3 can be in the wash and they still have plenty to play with! When we would take these to the farmers market, they sell out in no time! If there is a baby in your life, I highly recommend you make several of...Read more

Drawing Lesson 2 :: Overlapping Spheres

We are continuing our weekly drawing class. We are using Mark Kistler's book, You Can Draw in 30 Days. Instead of completing the book in 30 days, we plan to take 30 weeks, doing a new lesson each week and then spending time during the week practicing what we have learned. Although I am teaching the class, I am also student and learning every bit as much as the wee ones. Michelle has a degree in fine arts and she adds tons of helpful hints. It is a very exciting time for us all. If you would like to join us, simply pick up the book You Can Draw in 30 Days, and start at Drawing Lesson 1 :: The Sphere, and following along at your own pace. Each Lesson will be linked to the first Lesson and the next lesson. Happy Drawing! 

Lesson 1 :: The Sphere

Lesson 3 :: Advance-Leveled Spheres

Last week in Lesson 1 :: The Sphere, we learned how to draw a sphere. We learned new words like light source, shading and shadowing.  Our homework was to practice the concepts...Read more

FREE Sock Animals Patterns from Craft Passion

Photos from Craft Passion

The other day I shared some adorable Sock Sheep on Facebook. They were designed and crafted on Craft Passion. They were so stinkin' cute and everyone fell in love with them.

So, I started on a quest, as I often do, this time to find more adorable sock animals... you know, give people a choice. Well, guess what? The top 6 animals I bookmarked as the cutest all came from... you guessed it... Craft Passion. Best I can tell, Joanne, author, designer and crafter on Craft Passion is the Queen of the Sock Animals! Truly, her animals are so adorable that you'll want to make a few to give as gifts to the wee ones in your life, and a few more to place hither and yon for yourself! Plus... drum roll please, this talented sweetheart gives away her patterns and has wonderful tutorials that are so easy to follow and will turn you into a sock animal making machine!

So,three cheers (or four or five) for Joanne and Craft Passion! I'd break into a chorus of "For She's A Jolly Good Fellow" but only...Read more
