Category Archives: needle felting


The last pocket in the advent calendar held a felted manger and baby Jesus. (Mary arrived a day earlier in the month.  The funky stable was felted by a friend – intended as a hat but has become a play cave).

By the time I had woken up and come downstairs,  the animals had gathered round.

A Slow Start

January is a satisfying expanse of time that too quickly fills up.
I spent the holidays picking up a few old projects and starting some new ones.
A dragon towel for Eily and one for his cousin:
Learning intarsia for the cardinal motif on E’s hoodie:

A second roller blind, this one went much more smoothly:

And, at the quilt shop, E requested a needle felted elephant like he saw in a book. It’s a tiny little thing named (oddly enough, considering his natural habitat), Snowy:

we finally sold the hutch that was taking up most of our dining room. now, there’s room for our sideboard and though it still needs to be sanded and stained, this weekend’s work quickly find a home on it; a “tree” for displaying felted work, calendula drying, and eily’s printmaking from the open doors at the button factory yesterday.
