Back in April I took yet another class at the Textile Center, this time taught by Susan Stein on silk fusion (also known as silk paper, but silk fusion sounds cooler, doesn’t it?)

Happy May Day!

Phew, it’s been awhile!  I have been busy busy busy lately and there has been so much crafty goodness going on around here lately that I’m not even sure where to start.  So….how about with something totally NOT crafty?  Here’s a pic of the BEAUTIFUL tree in our front yard that decided to blossom this weekend, just in time for May Day.  Gorgeous!

As I’ve mentioned before, my Nana was a quite a crafty lady.  And like most crafty people, she had a lot of crafty stuff.  This pile was all we could fit in our car for the trip back from the holidays, but really is only the tip of the iceberg.  (Cute kitty included for scale.)

Now introducing…

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Two weeks ago, my friend Angie and I stumbled upon a website belonging to a fantastic French stuffed animal designer Gwenaël Malcorpi.  Good thing Angie speaks French  because we instantly fell in love and couldn’t find anywhere in the States (or that spoke English) that carried her line of stuffed animals.  On Friday, finally our friends arrived!

Meet Angie’s new best friend Elvis, who is, as the website says, the King Cat of the Rooftops.

He’s quite the cool cat (despite the flowered underwear).

And now to introduce my new wolfish friend, Monsieur Loup!

He also can be a bit of an exhibitionist, but we’re working on that.

Although Gwenaël says that he’s the leader of a group of bad hooligans, Celeste has helped us keep him inline so far.

I love our new furry French friends!

Of course I couldn’t resist having a little fun with fabric markers to add a little color.  Love it!!
