After Holiday Zoo Trip

After the holiday season, Jason and I usually take a trip to the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park for the weekend. This year was no exception. We usually wait a few weeks after the holidays before taking our trip but I wanted a chance to see the zoo's Christmas lights. The lights were fun, but I think I'd rather go with less crowds when the animals are easier to visit.

Even though it was really crowded and a bit chilly it was fun and we got to see a lot of the animals, even some of the super special new babies! Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip.

Felt Animal Prints and Upcoming Events

We've made a new addition to the shop lately, our felt animals as prints! 
Hot Air Balloon Adventure Print
We've been experimenting with making bigger and more elaborate pieces. The  hot air balloon print with Reginald and Beauregard, pictured above, is from a shadowbox we recently made. The image in the shadowbox was made just like all of our ornaments. Every piece was hand cut and  then hand stitched. You may have spotted it on our recent tables at Wondercon and the Long Beach Patchwork show.
