A bunch of the girls and I celebrated Jana's birthday last Friday. She's another one who has recently hit the 40 mark. I must say, many of us are 40, and older, but we party like we're 30!

Anyway, here's the skirt!
http://www.soulemama.com/soulemama/2011/01/woolie-skirts.html Have you ever checked out Amanda Soule's blog? I'm a pretty obsessive follower. She's a fellow mainer, mama, writer, crafter, knitter and so much more. At any rate, I decided that this would be the skirt for Jana's party. I managed to start, and finish, this project on the day of the party. There were a couple of blunders. First off, I cut the skirt too small and had to make some nifty side panels, which actually didn't turn out that badly. Necessity is the mother of invention, and I managed to figure it out. It needs some fine tuning, but I think I'll probably be making more of these. I have some gorgeous corduroy in a sort of salmon color that is begging to be made into a skirt! I'll keep you posted!
I've been pretty crafty and have added (and sold) a few items in my shop. Here's a sample:
|Handknit and Felted Wool Bag with Crow|
|The Essential Crow Handbag|
|The Essential Red Bird Handbag|
|Two Red Birds and a Heart Wool Purse|
We've been spending a fair amount of time outside, be it sliding, shoveling, or making igloos! Well, one igloo, anyway!
