textiles were calling us

My kids love to forage in my craft stash when they are bored and looking for a project.

Oh, wait, maybe it is *I* that loves to forage there.

No matter, we were all tickled to find a pile of burlap pieces that I snagged at a yard sale over the summer.

(Note: I'm not one of those hardcore yardsalers. I go to one yard sale a summer and hope for the best. I have friends who are self-proclaimed hardcore and I have been known to hand them my list and depend on the power of bartering later. Thanks for putting up with this, SL!)

Burlap, combined with plastic needles, yarn, and a bit of childhood inspiration yields quite a bit of beauty.

I love watching little hands working to put a plan into action.
