This was a joyous project, and it's made me realize how much I have grown as a needlefelter since I began last spring.
|My very first needlefelted figure, 2010...|
Sewing on the stems...
Shaping the green bell pepper to make it look realistic. (I wrapped a strand of thread around the outside to give the appearance of 4 sections.)
Felting each piece tightly enough so they were suitable for play...
I've been knitting a soft case for my recorder which I will hopefully finish and seam up soon.
The yarn is nice to work with; Soy Wool Stripes by Pattons, and I always enjoy knitting with knit picks harmony wood interchangeable circular needles! Slick!
As for books, I've been singing my way through "Dancing as we Sing", and it's fantastic.
Our new favorite song is Oats, Peas, Beans and Barley Grow!
The book is full of circle games, finger plays, and seasonal songs to enjoy together:)

It's been quite a week...
