Old and New

Well the weather is getting old. We had no church Sunday evening and another snow day yesterday. This is one nasty winter. So instead of school, we baked cookies.

Valentine cookies. They were fun and they are almost gone. We like us some cookies!
On to the new. New FO's!
I managed to finish up a couple of projects.
The Thumbelina socks for Cath are finished and my girls do NOT want me to mail them. They were both hoping these were here to stay. I think eventually I will have to make myself a pair with this pattern. I have already knit 3 pairs and I am still not sick of the pattern. If anyone is interested, I may write it up for free on the blog.
I also embellished the Felted Clogs for my friend. I am giving them to her tomorrow. Yay!

These were my first try at needlefelting onto a felted item. Not too bad eh? I think they turned out pretty well and I am happy with them.
I used my handy dandy new Clover needle felting tool. Very easy to use. I think I will get a lot of use out of this one.

The needlefelting is really pretty - totally adds something to the clogs. Love the socks, and the cookies look so good!

Lucky friend! Your foray into needlefelting looks wildly successful!

Those cookies...baked goods are calling my name.

I love the flowers on the clogs! Very cute.
I can't decide which I like more, your newest socks, or those cookies!

Those flowers make your clogs look super special. Great job! Those cookies would have been history at my house too. Lots of cookie monsters around here.
