New Addiction

Yes!  I do have a new addiction.  I just can't get enough of it.
It's Needle Felting in Wool.

Oh, the feel of all that soft wool roving.  And the colors!  And my little artist heart loves mixing the colors.  I've always loved sculpting.  In college, it was with clay.  When I learned welding, it was with metal.  And when I learned wood carving, it was with wood.  When I was a kid, it was bars of Ivory soap.  I'm so tactile, or maybe just the kid in me.  But, I love working with my hands and the feel of the materials is exciting and soothing all at the same time.

I told you my daughter, the Good Flea, has been dragging me reluctantly into the 21st century.  Well, she gave me some wool roving a friend had given her, and she dared me to find a use for it.  So, I found a site in my You Tube tutorial search that taught me the basics of needle felting.
