time for myself...felting 101...I learned from the best...


This mouse was a Christmas present from my friend Elaine at Bella Flora...she creates the most marvelous creatures...

these chicks I bought from her last Easter...aren't they delightful? I often wished that I could learn how to felt animals...
and I was lucky enough to take her classes this last weekend ( I am a slow learner, so I took both classes...)

this lifelike bird was from her...two Christmas's ago...it hangs on a branch on my Norfolk pine tree...
so...not sure what I am going to create...

the owl? My first creation...I think he belongs in a Tim Burton movie...

and my Sunday creation...this chick...
one of my New Years resolutions was to learn/create something new every month in 2011...and now I am on track...
Felting 101! completed in January...
what to learn in February?
