Tuesday morning, January 21, 2014

Today our craft group started later in the morning because poor Christine has a mishap with her water pipes at home. I was running around with several projects on campus (planning to felt a yurt using raw fleece with the 3rd graders tomorrow) and managed to take only a few photos. Christine showed us how to make needle-felted guardian dolls. Some of us continued working on our Rag Rug Project for our school fundraiser. – Jzin

She can also be a valentine’s doll, I think.
