Tomorrow, is the feast of St. Francis. To celebrate we have been working on little St. Francis dolls. I found a very clever tutorial for making cork people over at Appleshoe. It is an easy way to make people from wine corks and wooden beads – the possibilities for little people projects is limited only by your supply of corks.
The facial features for our Franciscans were modelled after the packaging of one of our family’s favourite cheeses, Saint-Paulin.
One of our family’s fall traditions is to attend a pet blessing service. You can see Ramsey (our black lab) waiting to be blessed.
He does not stray too far from that box of Milkbone biscuits on the alter.
Happy St. Francis Day and happy crafting,
