100 Days: Nutty

Looks like a bus stop in the fall, ha!
Um, yeah, I decided that some of the acorns on the Answer Tree shouldn't just have natural or natural looking caps. Oh no, Halfland's Tree of Wisdom's acorns will of course need to be KNITTED caps!

Made from (moth-eaten) fine-scale Japanese woolen knits stolen from Paul, embellished thrifted felted-wool sweaters, and embroidered knit glove fingers. The behatted acorns will hang on the tree near the Birds' hat collection without further explanation. Makes you wonder.

  4. heh heh, thanks, Ladies. These make me laugh too!

    Sharon, I happen to have extra knit material and would be delighted to quickly whip you up a couple, and I'll include some raw material so you can make some the size you need.

    No need to send more goodies than you already have, except please do send the fish you and your daughter are making, there's no time limit at the moment.

  6. Hee, it wouldn't fit you BUT I can send you some of the hot pink felted wool for you or me to stitch one up for your sweet little girl! Does it get cold in winter in Turkey?

  8. Oh.. ok.. I am sorry about the daysss between my comments. Still, I have not been able to go back to my regular daily life..

    Hot pink felted wool... stitching one up for your sweet little girl!.. Oh you are so nice.. Yes, it gets cold but no snow here in this town. Just rain and many suny days in winters :) I would not want to steal away any of your seconds. You are creating the 8th wonder of the earth there!!

  9. Gosh, yaz, that's about the nicest thing you could have said, thank you. I think all of our personal stop motion projects are the 8th wonder of the world! I can't think of anything that takes more grit and persistence and sheer strength to do.

    As soon as we know your package has arrived, I'll set about fixing you another, with the pink felt made into a little cap as far as I can in the non-1/2L time allowed.
