My first needlefelted project


I've had this kit for a while, ever since I fell for it after seeing a Nordic Needle email about it. I've bought some books, more needles, and various colors of wool, but I haven't figured out what I want to work on next.

I also have this vague fear of starting a new craft. I build it up in my mind, plan what I want to do, and then fear that it won't turn out like I want or will be more difficult than I thought. This is a new thing for me, and I'm trying to work through it. I'm usually indomitable when it comes to crafts. But it's been this way for my desire to paint watercolors and do beading projects. Maybe I can work on that over the holiday break. Four days for Thanksgiving, so I have a little time.

That is adorable. I think you did a great job for a first try. My first attempt at felting was a disaster. Lol

I psych myself out on certain crafts too so don't worry. Just have fun :)
