Today I was so excited to open up my home and heart to two gorgeous ladies who came to make a snuggle buddy with me.
For those of you who don't know a snuggle buddy is the simplest waldorf doll that I make, like these ones here.
I dropped the kids to Andy and came back and enjoyed an hour or so of getting ready. I was so excited, and I really enjoyed setting everything up trying to think of everything we might need and making the place relaxing and homely.

At this point we had a well earned break for lunch and enjoyed the view (rainbows and all) with a bowl of vegetable soup and brown bread.
Unexpectedly Andy brought the kids home at this point, which I have to admit was a little stressful for me. But luckily both of the ladies are mama's themselves and understood the chaos small people can bring.
Joa joined in with us and I put a DVD on for the other two while we embroidered the faces...
Both ladies went home with patterns and the hope to make more in the future, perhaps even to teach their friends.
I feel so proud and honored to have been part of this workshop, it is so great to be able to pass on this skill that I love so well. I think I will definitely be holding more workshops in the future :-)
