puppet theater!

Hazel has been asking for a puppet theater since I made one for the Carruth cousins for Christmas. Today I made one for my kids, but they don't get it until their birthdays in a few weeks.  I used a different tutorial this time.  I'm not sure which I prefer, but I thought the larger opening on the on this one might be better for my three elbow-throwing stinkers.  We'll see how they like it!

The theory, of course, is for the door behind the theater to be open, with little puppeteers behind it. I closed the door to get a better picture.  Also, aren't those puppets adorable? They were dirt cheap at Ikea.  We have several of them, and may need more!

green chevron

The tiny window in the school room got a little valance today.  It's the type of project that I hesitate to even call a project.  After all, I hemmed 4 sides of a rectangle and slipped it onto a curtain rod. Easy peasy. I do think it looks cheerful in there!
