needlefelting and a giveaway!

the birds!
pooped out!  home from work at 5:30, made dinner and beth, Vanessa and Torry pie came over.  The girls wanted to learn how to needle felt.  So, I taught them to make birds!  they did a great job.

we made tiny birds!  but they are very sweet.  Its sort of hard to explain really, how to needlefelt.  You sort of have to explain it but then just let people get the feel for it and experiment with it.  I bet these girls could whip these birds right out now if they wanted too.

And speaking of Birds...  I am making up a few of these.  A couple of them are gifts and one of them is a giveaway for my bloggy peeps!  I had meant to do a giveaway for my 1000th post.. but didnt get to it for some reason.
so, just leave comments and I'll pick a winner randomly this weekend!
for now, Im soooo tired.  I think I'll go take a nap on the couch before I go to bed! lol!
sweet dreams.. and happy Friday!!

I wish I could still needle felt, but I can do is draw blood now! I used to do it about 10 years ago, and my hands just can't handle it now.
