I love to make things, and once I learned to needlefelt I discovered a new world, little animals especially give me great joy to make!

My daughter-in-law taught me to needlefelt, and said I should start a shop here as she had one going and was doing well with it. She helped me choose my banner and paid for it as I didn't have internet at the time! I opened up with nothing in my shop, then when she came to visit at Christmas we went crazy Christmas night and listed what I had made, within 24hours I had a sale! I was hooked! It has been a steep learning curve, as I had no computer skills at all. I love making little animals, books and photographs help me to create them. I also have a secret love of anything fantasy especially dragons!
I bought my first unwashed fleece of wool to get my start, and used my mother's carders to prepare it, then learned to dye the roving, I love that part the best I think. My studio is just my favourite easy chair and my kitchen, and my back yard where I wash the wool. My clothes line is often decorated with wool hanging to dry, or in the winter it hangs on a drying rack over our wood stove.
So all in all I have loved this experience and continue to create, I am always looking for new things and ideas, and even after 4 years of needle felting I am still just as excited to begin a new project as I was with the first one!
