Felted Acorns

dscn6760

I meet monthly with a group of friends to do some needle felting.   Yesterday we made these little felted acorns.   Here in Maine it is a banner year for acorns and I was able to pick up the caps that had dropped from a tree across the street.   Researched how to treat the caps before using and found out that I needed to bake them in the oven at 200 degrees for 2 hours.

Still working on the Farmer’s Wife quilt and will have pictures of the latest blocks in a week or two.   I saw some beautiful blocks being made over the past few days when I attended our guild chapter’s quilt retreat in Kennebunk, Maine.   Our little group is making 8 blocks per month, started in January 2016, and hope to be done by the end of December. I look forward to seeing these completed quilts.

Raining today–this will help the drought conditions we had over the summer.   A great day to work in the sewing room!
