HERE IS WHAT ALL THAT YARN IS ABOUT

I am teaching myself to do needle felting.  I love it and I know I have tons to learn.  So far I cannot find any classes, so I read what I can online and experiment.  This is a felted purse I bought and I am needle felting the flowers on top.  It's kind of like painting with wool.  I met a beadmaker by the name of Shirley Cook years ago at a ISGB (glass beadmakers) convention.  She makes beautiful felted pieces.  Lots of bowls that are just gorgeous.  That is called wet felting.  I'd like to learn that too :)  I'll find her website and post it.  Here's the link to her Etsy shop.  Look at some of her sold items.....beautiful!

OKAY, I HAVE NO EXCUSE

I have just zoned out for awhile.  Busy with the grandkids, a couple of shows, and getting ready for my niece's wedding.  I found another signage I really like, hope I can pull it up. Sorry I can't make it any bigger,but it's a good thought, for me anyway.  Well, never mind. It wouldn't transfer.
I have another picture I want to put in.  Can anyone guess what I' m doing?  I should mention I do many of my crafts on my bed....except for bead making, of course.   Obviously, I'm eating chocolate and gumdrops, but what else am I doing?  Any guessers out there?
