Spring: Robins and a Snowstorm






Yesterday, we had a beautiful, sunny first day of spring. First thing in the morning, we looked out our window and saw FIVE robins! They were the very first ones we've spotted this year, too. They wouldn't let me get very close, but there is one in that picture above, right in the middle of the photo, in the shadow. Then today... four inches of snow! We brightened things up by making a Queen of the Spring doll for C. We were inspired by the beautiful dolls at Cherished Dreams. C chose the colors and I did the rest. I had forgotten how much fun needle-felting is! And below is our spring nature table, with our felted eggs, chick and flower dolls. I need to make a flower for the snowdrop doll, but for now she has the real thing-- even better!

Was für schöne Bilder...
Ich mag Rotkehlchen auch soooo gerne!

Und Deine Puppe ist ja zauberhaft geworden - und Du hast recht: mit der Nadel zu filzen macht unglaublich viel Spaß!!!!
