This little guy was a present for my mom. Hopefully it will be the first in a series of little felt creatures. Only if I stop procrastinating and get my papers done, though.

Bear Clothes

Doesn't this bear have an amazing fashion sense? So stylish. Thanks to Sarah for the picture, I knitted the clothes for her for the secret santa and she brought them home to Lauren the Bear, just in time for the blizzard. Good thing she got those warm clothes, otherwise she'd be freezing her paws off.

Penguin Present!

This is my new penguin! Sadly, I did not make her, but Sarah did! I know, one eye is bigger than the other, but it's not her fault, she was just born that way. The big question is, what is in that present??

Leaf Cards

A few cards I made a while back. They should have been "happy autumn" cards but they didn't get sent to anyone and here it is almost winter. Sad.

Happy Hannukah!

The Nest Revisited

It's time to reveal the mystery of the nest. (If you don't remember the mystery, click here.) Be forewarned, now that people have been wondering for so long, when I reveal the truth it will be rather anticlimactic.

The quick answer: Our crazy neighbor put the nest there.

The explanation: On September first, we came to the apartment to clean it and it was a very nice day. We discovered a bird's nest outside the window, with a little blue egg in it. So sweet, right? But we didn't have a camera with us. We went back to CT and the next day when we came back with the UHaul it was rainy and very windy. We started moving stuff into the apartment and we met this crazy lady who turned out to be our neighbor. She asked if we had seen the good omen in our new place. We had a brief conversation about how great the nest was. For months she had been watching the bird make its nest and have babies under the previous tenant's air conditioner, but she could only watch from outside, far away. So I invited her in to see it up close. She was very excited but when we came in, the nest was gone! She suspected the landlord had taken it down and she went to investigate. I went down to the truck to get more boxes. When I came back up there was the nest, on the windowsill, inside! The lady had found the nest on the ground under the window and brought it back up for me because she knew how much I missed it. That's when I took the picture. We deduced that since the air conditioner had been taken away the nest's protection was gone and the wind blew it down. Then we convinced her it was a little too dirty to keep in the apartment so she took it away again. Maybe she still has it in her apartment, who knows. And that's the story of the nest.
