Jack of All Trades--Master of Nothing!



That's what my husband says when I start going in too many directions at once. I have been wanting to try needle felting for a long time and I finally bought some wool roving and and a needle and gave it a try. It is amazing what you can do with just some "un-spun" wool and a needle! This little Siamese kitty is just solid wool with nothing else inside. I just kept poking it with a needle as I formed the body parts and then fused them together with more needle poking. I sewed some little blue glass beads on for the eyes. You can find this little kitty on Ebay this afternoon.

The angels are painted wood with a crackle finish. These will be added to my "Everything Under $10 gift selection" in my Etsy shop! Links are above. I am going to try to add new things each week. Have a nice week--I will be listing Bethlehem Babe (painting below) tonight on Ebay.
