Anxiously awaiting spring..

alexis and i made butterflies!


they really couldn't be simpler... just take a tuft or two of each colour of wool roving, lay them side by side, then join them in the middle with a tiny hair-tie (or rubber band or string.. we happened to have some hair-ties, and they're colourful), then fluff out the middle of each 'wing' and give the end a twist!

then we hung them in the window, with a length of thread tied to the middle, for a touch of spring cheeriness :-)
