When I saw Magda's key rings on her blog I knew I had to try making some. I don't have a supplier for wool felt around here, so I used some that I had made by washing and drying thrifted suits and sweaters. I like how this worked out because the extra thick felt really makes the little embroidered piece feel substantial. I also used all six strands of the floss--gives it a really bold look I like. I think these would make nice little secret pal gifts.
Here's the other side:I like them all except the little house. I want to do a house, but I'm just not crazy about how that one turned out.

And Mike bought a truck that pretty much looks brand new. If he keeps up this polishing the dirt and dust won't stand a chance!

We all had to play the mouse game...which was grandma's favorite.
We admired the horses and watched the mail races and flag competitions. We admired the livestock. This is my neice the budding photographer.
And my nephew who likes my favoite fair food almost as much as I do.

Apparently the flute section has been kicking butt at camp. Go flutes!
And this is the dinnerware...we are carrying Feed on the Word dinnerware at the shop now. Each piece has a different scripture. I love the idea of having the word before you at each meal.
PS. Our hearts go out to all in Minneapolis...such a tragedy happening there.
