Fuzzy Wuzzy?

A spur of the moment creation. Meet Fuzzy Little Amanda Bear.

I didn't plan to do needle felting today but synchronicity stepped in. I had been trying (unsuccessfully!) to spin some dreadfully short fibred wool when the phone rang. It was a request that I do a needlefelting demo. Although I declined the invitation, it did get me thinking about needle felting, which in turn made me decide to give the "dreadful" wool a few test pokes to see it's needle-felt-ability. Moments before the phone rang I was considering throwing the whole batch in the trash. Well a few "test pokes" turned into nearly four hours of needle felting and little Amanda was born. She's two and a half inches tall and cute as a button but, unfortunately, not very photogenic. She's much less fuzzy in "real life".

What to do with Amanda? That's one of the reasons I don't do a lot of needle felting. I'm not one for collecting "stuff".

For now I think she will visit a guild meeting for "show and tell" and then wait around until next fall when she can be a guest of honor at a needle felting workshop I will be teaching.

She's lovely! I keep thinking I wouldn't enjoy the process of needle felting and then I see these little guys you make ...

Oh sure, I need a new obsession. *g*

Wow, what a little cutie pie! I think she's very photogenic. You would have no idea how tiny she is without the keyboard in the background. She's perfect.
