The New Hobby

I don't know why it took me so long to try out needle felting.  I've known about it for years.  My favorite craft store in Denver has their own super cute kits.  I've seen really cool felted items made by fellow crafters, I guess I just thought it was too freeform for me.  Well, that has all changed.  Every year I make an easter bunny for my kids (2011, 2010), and this year I had many different thoughts on what to make.  I was browsing Etsy for inspiration when I kept coming across these really cute needle felted bunnies.  My main inspiration was from the amazingly talented fairyfolk shop.  I just couldn't get her cute bunnies out of my mind.  Then I realized I already owned everything I needed to try!  I bought a gnome felting kit at Rhinebeck this past fall, and I accidentally ordered the fiber Phat fiber box a few years ago, oops!  Well here's my version, I still want one of fairyfolk's bunnies in an egg though!

Hope the kids like it.  It's gonna be tough not to give it to them beforehand!

Son: Hey Mama! Mommmeeee! Mama! Mama! Mama!  Mama!  I have something to tell you!  Maaaamaaa!
Me: What is it?
Son: I forgot to tell you something. Goodnight, sleeptight, don't let the bedbugs bite you or your shoes!

The funny thing about not really having winter weather, is that you still get into that winter mindset.  I've been daydreaming and planning, but the thing is, the good weather is now, and the summer?  Well that's the inside season!  I've been dreaming about this workshop.  I love Heather Ross, her sewing book, and all her gorgeous fabric.  Plus, this workshop is in Vermont!  Well, I won't be able to go this year, and probably not next year either, but if I save my pennies maybe I can go after that!
Until then, I need to figure out what to make out of my Heather Ross fabrics I've been hoarding...
