Needle Felting- My new fascination

I recently discovered the art of needle felting and have fallen head over heels for it. Back in March, a writer friend had posted some pics on twitter of her friend's needle felt creations. I was gobsmacked by how beautiful they were, but it looked like an art form that would take years to learn. About two months ago, I found a tutorial online for needle felting mice. I tried it and was hooked. So far I've made two mice from the tutorial, and from my own designs I've made another mouse, a small owl, a Cornish pixie (from Harry Potter stories), a 2D portrait of my old border collie, and a 3D portrait of a friend's labradoodle. (I don't know why the dog pic is sideways!)

Nice to see you here, Vonna. I've missed you but so great to be back in Verla's house. Maybe I'll learn to do a few crafts too.

Thanks, Vijaya! Crafts have been fun and soothing for me. I'm still loving needle felting and have also gotten into crepe paper flowers and botanicals. I tried to attach a picture but kept getting an error message.

I haven't figured out yet how to allow attachments, Vonna. There are quite a few things that are different on a Word Press site than what I used to have on my old site and it's definitely a learning curve to get things working correctly. I've already accidentally deleted the thumbs up icon from the Message Icon List while trying to delete the current obnoxious (to me) Standard icon that shows up automatically with every post on this theme.  :oops

No problem, Verla! I've always worked with Wordpress but it has changed so much in the last few years that I find it very frustrating.

Vonna, what a cool craft! I'm still mostly a crochet girl, but I love seeing other options (for my mom, for instance, whose sight is limited but who is very artistic).

Since photos are working now, here's a needle felted silk and wool rooster I made from a tutorial next to a pitcher crepe paper daisies.

WOW! That rooster is AMAZING, Vonna. And your bouquet is stunning, too. Talent abounds in you!
