A new craft

Just what I needed, huh.

Today I took a two hour needlefelting class. Needlefelting involves unspun wool fibers (roving) and a barbed needle. You poke and poke and poke the roving with the needle until it starts to firm up and take the shape you want. It’s fun. And addictive.

Our local craft store offers a lot of classes, and Eric and I have recently agreed that I should take one class each month, just to have some time away from the kids doing something I enjoy. I had been curious about needlefelting since I first read about it sometime last year, and this seemed like a great opportunity.

I came home with a really cute needlefelted snowman. And sore fingers.
