Moose and Crafts

Last night these 4 moose and a 5th one joined in later in our surrounding yards here munching on the grass which is doing it's best to green up but certainly not there yet.
My latest felt craft from the cute Japanese book. This little girl with the red hood has 13 pieces to her pattern 7 of them being doubled. So you can see these are not quick and easy little projects. I have one sleeve set-in the blue satin top, the cuff is on, almost done really one sleeve left and that is it.

Hi Nan,

Did you invite the Moose inside to craft with you???? The felt characters are definitely adorable, can't wait to see them all!

Big Hugs,
Meri

How fun to have moose running around the back yard. We just get deer and once I saw a bobcat! It was someone's pet, we found out from the news!! I like the dolls, how fun!

The moose must be so happy to see at least a little bit of grass. The Mankell book was depressing, but very well written. The Iceland author: One about a grave -- I forget the title, was really interesting and good. One called Arctic Chill was really bad. If you go to my Blog Subjects at the bottom of my sidebar and click on Books, you can find my thoughts on both these books.--Inger

I had the same issues before with felt characters. That is why I got excited to find the simplicity pattern. I pulled the instructions out and it is a machine stitch pattern. I can't wait to start. There are about 4 projects ahead of it though. This hooded character is darling. Wish I had moose instead of neighbors! Renee

She is going to be adorable!
I can't imagine an animal as large as a moose living wild. here in England we have some wild deer, but not so close to peoples houses usually.

Hello Nan,
It sounds like you really are living your dream. We lived in Alaska for a few years when my husband was in the Navy stationed on Adak. Quite the adventure for a duty assignment! We would fly to Anchorage, (the BIG city) and would often see moose on the air force base. What fun!
Happy Easter!
