Dinosaurs, Lions, and Hats Oh My!

A week ago I got back from NC where I taught a class for a camp.  My class was on fiber arts, mainly crocheting, but we did start processing a fleece too, mid-week.  We got it all washed and dried and ready to card.


I had the greatest kids ever.

This isn’t all of them.  One didn’t join us until Wednesday due to another camp she had been at, and one transferred from another class to mine on Tuesday.  Without fail, they all finished the projects they started.  Some more than one.  As this isn’t always the case, I was very proud of them.

I don’t have pictures of the finished products yet, but when I do, I will post them.  Because they were wonderful.

And they got along enough on their own that I got to make something too.  It was so exciting.

Jack enjoyed camp too.


Especially when he discovered the fig trees.



We ate a lot of figs that week.

Anyway, since I’ve been home, I’ve been on a crocheting spree.


I made a dinosaur.


And another lion.


I like lions.


And a dinosaur hat.


Dinosaur hats make me happy.


They make little people happy too.


And…  I’m running out of yarn, so I brought home more fleece last night to spin and dye so I can keep making things…


You can find all these things and more at the link above.  Please check em out.  That makes me happy too.




About Tabi

I love the simple things in life, like, wearing skirts and going barefoot. Cooking glorious meals to feed friends and family. Trying to find healthy food at the grocery store on a limited budget. Spinning wool, (yes that's from sheep and goats and llamas), crocheting, and weaving. Picking fresh produce out of a garden, pouring real maple syrup over pancakes, and making a warm and loving home for my family. However, I don't use only whole wheat flour. I do not take reusable grocery bags to the store with me. I indulge in boxed meals when I must. I prefer sugar to honey. I do not shop at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, or Earth Fare except on very special occasions when I have extravagant amounts of money to spend. I HATE cloth diapers. I believe in breastfeeding babies, but not until they're five. I buy pre-made baby food. Somewhere in all this, I want to find the balance between the fanatical and the uncaring. Somehow, I hope to settle on doable.
