Maybe it’s the name…

woolly bear caterpillarWoolly Bear caterpillar. I’m not sure if it’s the name or the actual caterpillar. I just find it cute. Folklore says it can predict the weather. If it has a wide copper stripe, it is supposed to be a mild winter. Narrow copper band means a more severe winter. the copper band size really just relates to the maturity of the caterpillar. This caterpillar actually hibernates.
Cute, huh? Found this handsome devil in my backyard.

I can’t believe it’s been an entire year since I posted last. Well, if anything I am consistant. And I still suck at blogging. Anyway, here’s my latest project. It is a felted brimmed hat that I decorated with wild turkey feathers.
Felted hat with feathers

The feathers were collected from this handsome guy:

Now I just need to find a good project for my peacock feathers! On a sad note…This August 6th, I lost my beloved maltese, Angel. She had gotten very sick in a short amount of time. We miss her terribly. Here is a picture of her being her rascally self. She alway made us laugh. RIP, my love.
