little forest

Photobucket

Check out my new hobby! Needle felting! This little button is only about 3 or 4 inches in diameter. I made this back during the holiday break, when I took a needle felting class at the Beehive Wool Shop.

I know you're all thinking, as if YOU need ANOTHER hobby, Nessa! And you're totally right, but still, needle felting is fun, and has many cool applique uses when used on knitted-felted objects. Plus, it's a great way to use up little left-over bits of roving when I am done spinning because, in needle felting, a little wool goes a long way.

One of my favourite features of this little felted forest is the bead stars! I heart them.

Anyways, I don't think I'll give up too much time to this new interest, but it is a rather fun way to spend a rainy afternoon.
