Ever since Abby got this book from the library, I have been chomping at the bit to make wee folk. I can’t say what it is about these that I find so appealing. Frankly, they are pretty putzy. Trying to wrap the embroidery thread around pipe cleaners so all the chenille fuzzies are completely covered can make a person go cross-eyed. That is before embroidering a tunic that is no taller than 1 1/2 inches. Still, they are so cute and my kids are enchanted. Lizzie was studying the embroidery on the fairy’s tunic and identifying the different stitch patterns that I used. “Mommy, is that a French knot?” I have a feeling we will be spending part of their day off of school tomorrow making more fairies and wee folk.

Thanks for the nice comments (yup, that’s plural) on my last post.  I will draw a name Friday and get cracking on some goodies.  🙂
