colour in felt flowers on a dull day

Actually, it isn't a dull day at all. After 3 days of flooding rain, we had sunshine!
A cold sunshine that will hopefully freeze our pond again. 
After our delight in preparing the pond for skating, 
it rained or was abnormal temperatures +10 degrees Celsius in February? Crazy

When I saw this tutorial on Donni's site, the Magic Onions
I knew I had to try it.
I put a pin on the back instead of a stick. I think I will make some on sticks too.
So easy, so colourful, so happy.
Have a good one.

Cotton sewing

We are expecting a family from Syria today.
A little girl and a boy.
I thought it would be nice for them to receive a little toy of their own 
to distract them on the last leg of their long journey.

And for the little girl, A Maisie Doll

Welcome to Canada and Shelburne, your new Home!
We hope you will like it here.
