found treasures

mystery craft item

Does anyone have any idea what this is? I found it when going through my grandmothers old craft box. My mom thinks it's for flowers? I'm thinking it's for needle felting. Too bad you can't google search using an image! The box says made in Japan and aside from the price tag....nothing more. It weighs a ton and that's a rubber base.

I love going through someone's craft box, it's so inspiring, especially my grandmothers. I'm pretty lucky to come from such a crafty family.

a gorgeous summer day, an honesty box and a project for fall.

We were lucky enough to stumble upon a flower cart with an honesty box in this little city. Our reward:

Then home for some napping and knitting and a new creation.

It's the "hooded capelette", but I'm trying to come up with a better name...any suggestions? it's something I've been thinking up for a while. Cute? or strange? we love it over here.

Top up (cute overload):my fav:

We're going to love this in the fall and winter with lots of coverage.

the year passes quickly

It's been almost a year and we've loved every minute of it. Even the hard ones.
