Well look at that. After saying just yesterday that sooner or later I'd do something un-stone-like, here we are. This un-stone-like activity was a last-minute solution to a call of "mom, tomorrow is dress up like your favorite book character day". Emphasis on tomorrow. At 6 o'clock last night.
So I set down the stones and picked up some green and white wool. The egg whites are felted sweater wool, as is the inside of the ham. Needling furiously I was almost finished when my boy, looking at me with those sweet eyes, said "you're doing so well mom, but it needs a fork".
Seriously? It needs a fork?
It got a fork. That is galvanized metal wire that I bent and glued down into the ham. It left indents which I covered up with more wool. A piece of felt was slapped on an ice cream bucket lid, food glued down, and we have ourselves a plate worthy of my Sam-I-Am. I made a little strap underneath so he could hold it comfortably.
Now, back to those stones.
