Cheesy Seriously new to felting!! (Got the first 100% wool I have ever owned that wasn't already a sweater in the mail 2 hours ago)! Was originally planning to try spinning it. . . annoying husband "borrowed" the dowel rod I had purchased to make a CD drop spindle. But I wanted to try a little felting anyway, so that was a fine excuse. Put down the precious ballquickly read the "felt a bead" tute (eternal gratitude to Lise), grabbed a chunk, ran to the sink and viola!

I must be PMSing or finally pregnant, because I immediately burst into tears! What joy is there in life for those strange non-crafty people?Huh Took me at least 15 minutes to calm down long enough to get a pic!

I am so dang glad I have you all to share with!! Whew.I've gotta sit a minute. Cheesy

Felting is like magic. I'm sure you will continue to get a thrill everytime you make something out of felt.

Congrats!! That's a beautiful shade of green, and oh so round!

I'm very very bad at spinning... so I think that I might just start felting... where might I find this "felt a bead" tute? I haven't been able to find it using the search feature.  Sad

edit: I am a dork. I just found it.
