This is the year I start putting some of my work out there. After not being able to sleep I decided it was time. After finding a couple pics on my phone & camera, uploading them, editing, creating a photo collage for this one, & posting ... one would think I have many to show. One would be wrong.  Grin
But, after being a member of Flickr since 2006 & craftster since around the same time - I am finally getting some pics of my goOdies to share. I'm always so inspired by everyone's work - maybe someone might think my stuff is cool too.  Wink

Oooh, i like the colors! What do you use them for? I was thinking if you flipped them upside down they look like toadstool caps. Very nice!

Bella and I were on the same page. That looks needle felted! If it is, and even if it isn't, you did those circles and embellishments on the vessel really well. It is really cute. The way you made it stand, with the circles going to the bottom, is smart.

Yes, it is needle felted. The kit provided a Styrofoam ball to needle the wool to. They warmed that removing the ball to finish the bowl was going to be a big mess - it was, it was! But, worth it. Hope to make another.

Confession: the circles on the bottom were not planned. Most of the added goodies wasn't part of the kit directions & I got a little carried away. This was the first time I was finally getting the hang of creating those types of add ons & when I added the large orange ring on one side -- the bowl wouldn't sit flat anymore. But, I loved the ring. Decisions, decisions....
So, I was thinking of different bowls & how some of them have little round pieces that the bowls sit on (terrible with correct terminology) & I stuck some straight sewing pins on the bottom of my bowl to see if it would work. It did! The bottom has 3 little maroon balls & the orange ring plays into getting the bowl to sit level.
When the Styrofoam ball was removed the form was a little jacked up, but I'm attempting not to be so hung on on things like that this year. The fact that I'm still needling this bowl is not a good sign.  Tongue

They do look like toadstool caps! I will have to keep that in mind - have a gnome & toadstool needle felting project germinating in my mind.
It's suppose to be a small bowl - got it as a kit with no real purpose in mind for it, but I figured it was a easy way to learn needle felting. I'm not really sure what it's plans are other than decoration somewhere.
Truthfully, the wool has been like catnip to my diva kitty cat Boo. She shoves her face in any of it that's not protected while I'm felting. I made her a couple of plain felted balls with no catnip inside & she flings them all over the place & loves them.
When I put my bowl out for display one morning - came home from work to find it on the floor beside my sleeping cat. I imagine it went all over my apartment & back again. Grin
