New terrariums

It really is becoming an addiction. I gave myself an hour or two off writing last night and made another one. The jar is a lovely, chunky greenish glass one from an Emmaus in France, but I made the little Fimo houses.

My best friend Nina likes my terrariums, but had warned me never to make her one, as she kills every plant she owns. So for her birthday I made her a knitted terrarium; one she'd never be able to kill!

Grey wool for the stones, a circle of brown felt for the soil, a circle of green felt (to sew the knitting to!), then three mounds of knitted moss. I also combed some lovely 100% wool yarn I had to make the wispy stuff.
