I'm teaching myself some new tricks. I love exploring a new craft. I really believe that trying new things gives you ideas that you can bring to your old things. The latest: needle felting. I can't knit....but in 3 seconds I taught myself how to felt. You can't stop me now.
It's interesting that you can be surrounded by treasured items that have beauty and sentiment but later take on another role as inspiration just because of a shift in perspective, or an awareness. Once I started thinking about wool I ordered these handsome acorns from Fairyfolk. And I opened the Love Book to Kristen's lovely page, and I pulled out my felted bag from Marie. Then I tooled around on youtube and found THIS. Who wouldn't want to try something like this? Sure, it took some supplies....I found those online HERE.
More from youtube: a video from Rice where she shows you additional things to do with needle felting. HERE. It's endless. I great craft to practice during football games....you can produce many items in one sitting. When it's too cold to be in my studio I can sit at the table and felt.
Do you felt? Tell us about it!!
