I didn't think it was possible for me to love wool anymore than I already did but this past week I've fallen for it all over again. I picked up needle felting. I've been sick, and needle felting is the perfect craft for laying around in bed, watching tv. A couple of years ago I bought the supplies for it but didn't really get into it, until now.
I rely greatly upon subtlety in my creations. I prefer to use small bits of Japanese fabrics and pair them with rich, classic fabrics like linen and wool. I think it highlights the cuteness of the fabrics in a way that you don't get when you use them on their own. I feel that I do the same with my animals. I'm often amazed that it's possible to take a rectangle, tweak it a little bit and have it become an owl. It's the same with the needle felting. It's also surprising how quick needle felting is even though you are just poking wool with a small needle.
