I'm still here!



It's been a while since i've updated my blog. Since my last entry here i've officially become an award winning needle felter. I entered 4 pieces into the Royal Adelaide Show and as you can see in the above picture, one of my pieces one the much sought after first prize blue ribbon! I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled I was about this.


When I went to collect my 4 critters from the show, one of the organisers asked me if I took lessons in needle felting. When I told her I was self taught and had been doing needle felting for 6 months, her jaw nearly hit the floor and said "You're BRILLIANT!".


I still think i've got a lot of learning and improving to do but those 2 words meant a lot to me.


As for my current needle felting project, i'm working on a grey rabbit. I should have him finished in the next couple of days. Shortly I want to start working on creating a needle felting kit and as always I have a TON of cute critters just waiting to break out of my imagination and into some wool.


So much to do...so little time! ;)

Yes, this is a very cute little rabbit Narelle. You are a talented lady. needle felting is SO satisfying isn't it? Something about the feel of the wool, and the
sculptural qualities. I see little characters when I just touch and scrunch the wool. Does this happen for you too?
