I’m so excited to be here in this site and of course with YOU! I’m sharing my many years of working within wool, my stories, a little bit of music and more. What do I do daily? During my day, I’m usually poking wool – it’s not painful for the wool, just me when the needle ends up in my finger! I continue until it sweeps me off my feet when I hold the sweet, soft, beautiful completed figure of one of my fairies, gnomes, or mermaids. It’s like a wedding between wool and my imagination.
You might ask: “Does it appear within 15 minutes?”
“How about a half an hour?” Keep raising the time.
“Ok, so here goes my last try: One hour.” No, I’m sorry. Maybe you’ll understand a little better if I describe why creating a figure takes so long.
First, decide what figure you would love to make, like a fairy, gnome, mermaid etc.: let’s say a hanging fairy. Every step in the creation process takes more time than you might expect. Here’s how it goes without too many deep details: If you add the many minutes needed for at least 21 steps, it should take about 2 hours.
Some might think, “Yikes, why in the world would you want to spend that much time for this?”
Well, I love needle felting. When I use my hands, head, and heart, I start forgetting about time. With all of my labor, wool moves closer to the creation of life. With one last exhilarated thrust, I deliver a birth! “Happy Birthday, My Wool Baby!” I could never put it down, because I love it!
Thank you for visiting! I hope you have enjoyed being with me!
With Light, Love, Life, and of course, Levity!
