Needle Felting

Tonight I'll finally get to settle down at my bench and start on the pieces inspired by my trip as well as the yummy stones I picked up in Tucson.

Nomnomnom. Cabby love.

But, for now let's take a moment to rewind to my trip (my skin's memory has already forgotten what it feels like to have sun warming it instead of wind burning it). While I was down in AZ, my hands were busy doing things other than jewelry.

I don't sit still well.

Since fire and chemicals aren't airport friendly, I brought along a bag of felt and a needle instead. I've been wanting to needle felt for sometime, but between the horses and jewelry, it's never the "right" time. But in Arizona it was. Just perfect, in fact.

These are the little guys I whipped up while I was there. I have visions of many more, maybe someday I can find a spot of time for it again.

The fishes, Lyle & Belinda:
Dino (Die-no):
The spotted pony:
Stego (probably my favorite):

It seems the bird escaped this edited bunch of photos. Hmph!
