I hope everyone had wonderful holiday celebrations.
I have to show you my best, fun present. My daughter gave me a needle felting kit! I think she read my mind. Anyway, I had to get started on it right away, of course. I've never done it before, and the directions in the kit were a little vague, (not that it's complicated) so I took a trip over to Youtube, which was very helpful, as everyone knows. I also looked at a few photos online, because I wouldn't have known a chickadee if it came and landed on the edge of my coffee cup.
It's a very interesting craft and you can get a fair amount of detail with shaping and shading. The photos here make my bird look rough and fuzzier than it is in person.
