I have made my niece Sara an ornament for Christmas for the past three years. This year I wanted to do something with a milkweed pod. I finished the drying process on low heat in the oven and then created a little felted wool mouse to put inside. I have seen something similar done with walnut shells before, which would certainly be sturdier for little hands.

Happy Holidays! Winter has finally arrived in Vermont inspiring another snowy scene. I am not sure anyone would recognize him, but the fox in the middle is my grandfather- well, what my grandfather would look like if he were a fox. He liked to take my mother and the grandchildren, skating on ponds that he'd find in the woods.
