Felted eggs

Well we can finally feel spring in the air. It is so nice to see the flowers out and the grass is greening up nicely. With the change of seasons comes new inspirations. For the easter and spring season I have been needlefelting eggs. A simple technique of using the felting needle to punch fiber into styrofoam eggs. They can be as simple or fancy as you want. I did some classes recently and it never ceases to amaze me at the creativity of students in the class!!! Check them out.

Now I working on a line of hand-dyed, hand-spun yarn. I have learned alot in the process, mostly how long it takes to have a mill spin the yarn for you. So I decided for this first batch I am going to be spinning it myself. I will be posting pictures as we go along.
Happy Creating!
