Oh, I'm so proud of myself.........

I have been seeing so many pretty felted projects, I just had to try it !!!! I was very skeptic after the hat was knitted.........................when I took it out of the washer after the first wash I was a believer, after the second wash I was thrilled.............. WOW, THIS REALLY WORKS !!!! I AM HOOKED !!!!

And this is .....

a Sunday afternoon project !!Besides stuffing myself with hamburgers, chicken, corn, slaw , cheesecake and brownies, a cookout with family was also very productive.............

And what a surprice........

when I got in Sunday morning, this was waiting for me on the kitchen table. Along with some German cooking mixes, gravy's and chocolate from my brother in Germany ( I love him to death )
The yarn is from Zauberelfe located in Germany. Absolutely beautiful !!! My next problem .......what to cast on first.
