Look what landed in our garden today...

Not quite as elaborate as Salley's, but Tess was thrilled. It's the beginner one, anyway.
I've had the Felt Wee Folk book for almost two years now, collecting little things here and there. I picked up a a dozen different wool felt strips when Gathering Basket went out of business. This fall Tess really got into collecting the acorn caps for their hats. We've got enough for a fairy army!
The hardest has been finding decent "silk" flowers for the skirt, and I still haven't located 12mm or 10mm unvarnished wooden beads for the head. Had to go with 16mm, which is okay; smaller might have made me crazy on the first time out.
Hope the Elmer's glue holds.
I picked up this really cute embroidery book the other day. Went to the library this morning after Kindermusik to enlarge some of the patterns. Love the gritty finger puppet-pirates!
