I have been making these for my family for over 20 years and they are always a hit.    Some people put a marshmallow filling inside but we like this filling best.


The Monday Spinners is a branch of WOOLGATHERES.  A group of spinners that started in the Amherst, Leverett area some 50 years ago.  Deb and I found it and carted out spinning wheels all over the hills of Leverett.  It was loads of fun, we learned a lot, met a lot of interesting folks.  We have come full circle and a lot of the gals we knew then are in the rug hooking world now.

There was knitting , sewing, hooking and needle felting going on today.  A good time was had by all.

Thanks for reading my blog and hope you have a wonderful day.      Carole
