Winter is coming…time for needle felting!

My friend Melissa is a woman of fiber.  You can see what I mean at her blog:  http://www.melissaweaves.blogspot.com/

That’s a field I’ve done little to conquer, but last year she introduced me to needle-felting holiday ornaments, and I loved it.  This year, I’m teaching my kids’ class how to make the ornaments, using fleece, felting needles, cookie cutters, and upholstery foam in December.  The resulting ornaments are just beautiful.

In early November Melissa and the other Crafty Ladies are going to have a felting extravaganza using needle felting; we’re also gonna get together and make stuff out of old wool sweaters felted in the washer & dryer.  A new frontier!  Maybe we’ll needle felt raw chickens!
