Mommy-made is always the BEST!

Tuesday morning, October 22, 2013

On this cold October morning, our craft group gathered in the back room of The Company of Angels school store at 8:45am for our weekly craft group get-together.

Christine showed us how to make “A Simple Waldorf-style Baby Doll in a Knitted Blanket”. My 10 year old boy Vi had a tummy ache that day (That pizza with gluten was not a good idea). After taking a few quick photographs, I left the crafting session early today to care for him. I managed to take more photos in the following week of our completed crafts.

Thank you Rachel Skelly and Christine Newell for organizing our Waldorf School of Orange County weekly craft group get-togethers! – Jzin
