Tuesday morning, October 6, 2015. Just another lovely day in Costa Mesa, California.

Today, our craft group gathered in the lovely garden outside of The Company of Angels store to make a popular needle-felting craft: Little Mouse in a Pumpkin House. This craft is so beloved, it has been brought back by popular demand! As a crafter puts it…

“This project is a gateway craft!” – Kathy Christian.
