A new year and a new craft

Hello and a very happy new year to you all.
I feel like I should apologise for not posting in such a long time but as this is what I always seem to be doing lately I'm going to skip it and get on with what I've been up to.
Over the past few weeks I have been learning how to do needle felting which I hadn't done before but always fancied, mainly because it looks so creative and there is so much that you can do within what is quite an inexpensive craft.  Anyway it started when a couple of ladies determined to learn needle felting came to the shop and asked if I did lessons.  Obviously I didn't but suggested that if they came along and paid a very nominal amount I would not only learn with them but provide guidance where needed.  Since then it has blossomed and I now run lessons on a one to one basis and have a group booked in in early February which is very exciting.
So far these are a few of the things I have made.
The Wren I gave to my husband for Christmas as wrens are his favourite bird.  The dog was supposed to look like Millie, Steve's Nana's dog.  She loved it. The sheep is mine and is displayed in the shop and the picture will eventually be framed and put in the lounge.
I am really pleased with the results of my first efforts and have found a new craft that I can develop and enjoy for years to come.
