Needle Felted 'Oswald'

Hello Blog friends,

I am still here, not producing many cards at the moment (only for family etc).  But I did go on a days course recently to try something new.  The course was a Needle Felting course run by a very talented lady Heather O'Leary of Craftwerk.

I have always wanted to try this craft, so was delighted to find a course being run fairly near to me.

I had the most enjoyable day, there was only two 'students' so the course was very intimate which suited me not being good in large crowds.  Heather is lovely and made us tea and coffee all day long, offered home made cake (her marzipan cake is gorgeous and I don't even like marzipan) and other goodies.

As there were only two of us, we got to make our own individual felted creatures, so I made Oswald my Romanian rescue.



This could be the start of something new, I already have a kit to do (purchased before I went on the course, but was always too scared to try).

We also came away with loads of wool and needle felting basics, so I can start creating other critters. This means you might see my cards interspersed with little creations like this from time to time.

Let me know what you think?

Thank you for visiting, and for any comments you may leave, I love reading them.
