A Day of Triumph! - The Magic Onions

A Day of Triumph!

 I am a happy nut!

Why am I a happy nut? I took my needle felted creations down to the Waldorf School of Orange County. I was VERY nervous! I was hoping to display them in their shop, The Company of Angels, the most beautiful shop in the world… and, would you believe, they snapped up EVERYTHING! They took ALL I had!
They took all my little Easter Gnomes.

They took all my gnome families.

They took my whole Mother Earth Series.

And a few balls which you can see in my blog photo.
I am honored to the hills that my creations are worthy of such a beautiful shop. In fact, I am speechless! I am walking around with a certain air of excitement!
So, now with my cupboards bare of my needle felted friends, I have a good reason to get working again. I have been felting furiously to make Easter Gnomes (there are 4 up already) for my Etsy shop and fill a few orders and will add items to my shop as they are made. 
Oh, to think that it was only two months ago that I hesitantly opened my Etsy shop and tentatively put my first Mother Earth up for sale! Thanks to all of you for your precious words of encouragement.
