It is always astonishing for me to see the impulse of the season in the work of my children. The elements of the season, the materials at hand, and the inner feeling come through their art. While I try to have a variety of materials on hand, like fabrics, felt, wool roving, needles, and thread, etc., seldom do I initiate their projects. I love to see what comes naturally to them.
Vivienne came up with this fun stocking stuffer idea, pine needle pencils. The pencils are wrapped in floral tape and finished with a fresh spring of needles.
