My Life in Felts and Flowers

Greetings! Tomorrow is the last day of Lucia's school, and I am incredulous. There are times when I just want to catch her and hold her. Other times, I've cheerfully scooted her out the door so I could get some work done.

In May, we attended The Magic Flute as a family, and I was inspired to create Papageno and Papagena dolls for the shop:

I decided I wanted a series of dolls at lower price points, too, so I created six flower-box babies. You can see them here, attended by Strawberry Girl:

In case you're wondering, Strawberry Girl is singing The Garden Song to them.

Any requests for what to make next?

Speaking of gardens, I am trying to put my weeds and stones in order. In among the proliferation of dandelions, however, a new plant showed up. I decided to let it be, and today, found that it was a pinkish-purple foxglove.

I'm pleased that the trillium have doubled. Here are two toad trillium:

Oh, those are pretty - I don't think I've ever seen real trillium before.

You're getting so good at the felt dolls! These latest ones are so lovely! I wish I had that kind of talent.

I just bought a foxglove plant for my yard. Thus far, it seems to be okay with life in my garden. It's not as happy as that rhubarb you sent. I must take another picture. I believe I will be harvesting some this weekend and making a rhubarb cake.

I want rhubarb. The toad trillium are gorgeous. So are your box babies!

Saints and Spinners said...

Thanks, everyone! One of the box babies has already found a good home.

I bought seven pounds of rhubarb on Friday. Tell me of this rhubarb cake of which you speak, Adrienne. Did you end up making it?
