Playing in the studio!

Well, I had some time with my friends to learn needle felting using my needle felting machine and boy is this so much fun, so much so, I think a small class on this is in the works. Of course I was supposed to do a peach, but you know me, I truly tried to do the peach, but to no avail!  Landscapes are in my heart soooo......, here is my piece. 

What I like about this technique, is you don't need a machine, you can do it by hand as well.  Clover sells 2 hand held felters - a 5 needle and a 3 needle felter.  At the moment I have been given a small electric felter made by Simiplicty to try.  I will keep you posted.  You can felt just about anything, wool roving, fabrics, yarns to name a few. 
Try it or join me at A Great Notion in the April - July session.  This is great to take anywhere, the cottage, the beach or getting together with your friends for a fun day of needle felting.
