Not sure if this is an ok place to post this, but today I did a very fun thing: I took a needlefelting class. My mom and I were looking for something to do during her visit, so we called up a localish spinning/weaving store and asked for a private class.

We both made small teddy bears, about 5 inches tall. I will post pictures of our creations. I think they turned out very well, especially given that we were both totally new to needle felting.

My next project is making a Venus de Villendorf-type goddess sculpture for a present for a friend.

Will post the pictures as soon as I upload them to the computer.

These are fantastic. I have been longing to venture into some new fiber arts, including spinning and felting wool. I loved these little bears. They look so professional, you'd never guess they were your first projects. I hope you'll show pics of the gift you're making for your friend when you get it finished.
