Acorns…#166

Tis the season….

Did you know that an oak tree does not produce acorns until its 25 years old????

The tree in our front yard hit that mark, and is not wasting any time, we are blessed with a driveway full of acorns…and caps…..which I cannot resist gathering up.

On Thursday, when the Baguettes were over, we made wool felt acorns just for fun. 

Making them is good physical therapy for your hands….at least the way we did it,  wet felting in a baggie with dish soap. 

But I love the results:

Thank you Kat for giving me your little wooly guys too.
