Needle Felting Class

We had a needle felting class on Sunday. Kathy taught us how to make ornaments and how to embellish projects that have already been made. It was a wonderful diversion with wool, but no 'stitches'... sort of a side step from knitting.
Everyone had a supurb time. And the results were fabulous!!

The End of the Noe Knit Mobile

My sweet car was stolen yesterday. From my street, if you can believe. I have to laugh. The back license plate is wired to light up in pink neon when the head lights are on. Bright pink to match the store sign. Can you imagine? I bet the fools who took it did not know they were glowing bright pink as the joy rode around greater South San Francisco!
