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".
