Goodies!!! I am spoiled and I like it!!!!

Hi there folks.
How are we all doing today?
Hope you are all well and happy and last but not least creating?
Have to share this with you guys, I got spoiled yesterday afternoon.
See end of this week I will be teaching two needle felting classes in Idaho Falls (Bradys for the locals), I needed more wool and so off to the Lazy J. Now I need to turn this.....

into this.....



On the following picture you see dyed goat hair, I bought it like that and it needle felts like a dream.




Then the other two small donuts in front of the wool are bamboo silk and soy silk.....and omg...these are even better then real silk. The softness and the sheen.. I am in needle felting heaven.

When we got home it was frozen pizza ( yes we did heat it before we ate it!), for dinner. No way that I was going to cook....Hubby saw that one coming, the pizza was actually his idea..lol.
Then into the studio till about one o'clock and created this. Used commercial felt to felt on and then the bamboo silk and the goat hair. The green is some kind of yarn that I bought at a yard sale, it felted pretty good.





Its is going to be a shoulder bag...what you think?
Well guys gotta go back to shovel snow..again and dye some more wool . Then when I am waiting for the dyeing process I guess...I will just have to play some more...sigh...lol.
Love you all my friends, you rock!
Take care and go and create!
Andrea.

What a gorgeous piece of art - I love it! I attended a needle felting workshop a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed this new skill.
You have inspired me even more Andrea, thank you.
Linda :-)
