Hi!  Has it really been a month since I last posted?  I guess it has.  I have not been crafting very much.  My toddler's napping schedule has been erratic, so that has cut into my sewing time.  I am so far behind in making birthday gifts, that I am actually considering taking a day off from work to catch up on my hobby.  Is that wrong?

Anyway, last week I took a class in needle felting. My goal is to learn how to mend my wool sweaters.  One of my favorite sweaters has holes in its elbows, so I want to patch that up and I thought I saw something on pinterest about needle felted patches.  I could be wrong, but it was motivation (also used as justification when explaining the class to my husband) to take the class.

The class was offered at the Textile Center, which is where I also took that marbling class.

Those are all of the materials that we used in the class.  Our project was to copy a picture of a bird using the needle felting technique.  And here is my bird:
I wish the class had been just a tad longer.  I never did ask about how to patch my elbows.  Oh well.  At least now I have some needles and an idea about what to do.
