Paging Dr. Claire

Dr. Claire
With all the doctor visits and hospital stays. It seems Claire has a career path in mind. All the tenderness of her care givers has rubbed off and she is a great doctor to her dolls and cat.

Welcome Spring

A friend of mine introduced me to needle felting. I knew I needed another craft skill set like we need more dandelions in our yard. I held off the urge but couldn't contain myself. I made this wee felted bunny. It was rather fun, but I know I need lots of practice.

He then found his way to our nature box.

We do not have the traditional nature table that is popular in many Waldorf families. We used an old wine crate, and hung it on the wall to create a nature box. It suits our small space well, and is nicely contained.

We had fun dying egg this year. We tried the silk scarf/ old tie method that is so beautiful and popular.

While it is very beautiful the off bleeding boil time is long and the dye transfer makes me a bit nervous to actually eat the eggs. I think we will try the vegetable dyes next year.
The girls woke up bright and early to see what the bunny brought them. They were very excited about the treasures they received.

Then it was off to near grandma's house for a wonderful dinner and egg hunt. The rain didn't stop these hunters.
