that needle felting was so "magical" and fun? Apparently, quite a few people before me, but I just discovered it. It was easier than I expected, and provided the quick reward of a completed project. I was amazed at how a puff of wool could turn into something more solid in such a simple fashion (since my prior experience with felting involved crochet first, then wash, then shape and dry). Anyway.....this is my first of many felted goodies, I'm sure.
