needles and felt

We were just given a needle-felting kit from our dear friends.  The making began on the spot, and has continued daily...
Yes, yes, they've poked themselves a couple of times, but can you tell how hard they are concentrating, and how deeply focused they are (notice the open mouths?!)? Hours. Several chapters of Alice in Wonderland on Storynory.com. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.  We all made little bags for some friends we visited today - they were so proud!

(PS - no, mom, these photos were not staged. they do really really love their owl sweaters!)

What a great way to spend a winter day!And yes, I'm thrilled to see they still love their sweaters and they didn't live in them when they got them simply because I was there and they were being diplomatic!!

I'm going to share this post with my daughter. She started needle felting valentines the other day. I'm sure your children's work will be inspirational!
