New Hats


Happy, Pansy and Valerian wanted to show you their hats. Happy loves his green hat with the cardinal feather. He had to sit by the bird feeder for days and days waiting for the cardinal to lose a feather for his hat.

Showing hats

Pansy thought her hat went nicely with her pink dress. Valerian has a long hat made from a white lily. She waited until it was as long as it would grow before she picked it and preserved it to use. The rest of the crew wanted to say hi, too, so here they are.


All set for the Baseball Hall of Fame

See you at the Cooperstown Farmer’s Market on Sat. July 26th. Mikey
Lenni here. Ready for a game.
I’m Arrow and I can hit and pitch straight as… well, you know.

Several of the elwen have been asking me to make puppets that look like them. I’ve told them I am trying, but they are just so hard to get right. Bayberry has such a mischievous smile and his eyes sparkle all the time. That’s hard to make into a puppet.
Leaf is such a sweet little thing, with her long colorful hair and rosy cheeks. She wears her flower headdress most of the time but lately she has been wearing one big flower on her head like a hat.
So, I am making as many puppets for the Hall of Fame induction weekend as I can make, and hopefully I will see you there. I’ll be at the Farmer’s Market. Mappy, the puppet lady


Rain on the Sleeping Lion

The elwen are using the abundance of rain to fish in the pond. Since the rain has kept the pond full they are able to take their little bark boats out for rides and fish over the side with willow poles and hooks of fine wire they make in the smithy. Brokk is fond of fish stew. After catching trout, he gathers wild garlic and greens to add to the pot. He even sneaks into Mr. Tamoshay’s garden and digs young potatoes once in a while. Mr. Tamoshay thinks rabbits are digging the potatoes. We won’t tell him what is really happening. He wouldn’t believe it anyway.
