My mom took a trip to Newfoundland last August. They went to the recreated viking settlement Lanse Aux Meadows where she was given a demo of nalbinding. She thought it was pretty cool and, knowing my crafty streak and love of challenges, she bought me an instructional CD and a needle. This is my only completed project because nalbinding takes forever. I've only learned the simplest stitch so far.

The purple swirly things are needle felted on. I thought the plain green hat with a purple brim was a little boring.

This is beautiful. I love the colors and the simple design of the swirl. Your stitches look awesome.

Good for you for mastering nalbinding! I took a class once but never actually managed to make anything Smiley.

This is really pretty!  I'd love to learn some kind of needle felting or nalbinding but it hasn't played out in the cards yet...  kind of like spinnging.  Oh well.  Your work is excellant!  And those colors are great together! Cheesy
