Winter Wonders

Posted by on Dec 21, 2009 in Art

Thanks to a snowy weekend, I had the time and focus to learn a new technique – needle felting. In just a couple of days I managed to make several small items, including this mushroom.

One of my favorite things about needle felting is that you can just pick up where you left off – the mushroom was first one of those red balls from last month, then it became an apple – which I did not like, then I added the mushroom on top, and finally, I added some moss.

I like the idea that you can continue to reinvent an idea, and re-purpose an object, again and again. I’m hoping for a few more snow days.
