Needle Felting Tapestry

One of the things I miss most about LifeWays is spending an entire day focusing on an art/craft project. Today, with Joe's blessing, I treated myself to a class on creating Needle Felted Tapestries. (Needle Felting is taking colored wool bits and a barbed needle and stabbing the wool over and over with said needle. The wool felts and you can create lots of stuff with it. Very therapeutic.)The class was taught by one of my LifeWays teachers and hosted by one of my fellow classmates (and one of my favorite people ever). After about four hours of work, this is what I ended up with.



Its about 9X12 and I estimate that I've got about another 4 hours of work on it. I have to finish the butterfly, add bluebells, and a couple of good sized daffodils. And more background color...I'm noticing with the picture that the yellow on top is looking pretty thin. What's really cool is that we felted it onto half inch industrial felt! Took some of the work right out! Perfect for just hanging on the wall when done!.

The great thing that I got out of this class is how to fix Ike's crown. I'm not happy with the wings and I wasn't sure how to fix it. After today, I think I've got a pretty good idea.

It was a good class, and I missed my LifeWays classmates very much. I wish more of them had shown up. But I did get a good visit with the hostess, especially when I drove her to the airport.
