Something New

I'm trying something new. Needle Felting. I made a mouse today, a blind mouse. He has no eyes because the beads for the eyes are so small that my needle won't go through them. It was a fun little project and I only stabbed myself several hundred times, tiny wounds that bled little.

    1. I think I'd like to try that when I get really good at it. I'm trying to decide whether I want to do the second one according to the package directions or try my own design.

    1. A boy? I don't know. I never checked. ha ha!
      Maybe it wasn't quite that many times. My friend Kim suggested a thimble but I might need a whole handful of them!
