she felt it

My friend Barb retired from teaching Fiber Arts at the local high school this year. Fiber Arts includes everything from crewel to felting to weaving to macrame to embroidery to sewing (of course). Suffice it to say, Barb is a gal of many talents.

Barb worked for months on a collection of felted miniatures as parting gifts for the other art teachers. Each week when our little band of misfits got together to work on our projects (we meet every Wednesday, with breaks for summer and holidays), Babs would bring her felting basket and update us on the progress of each of her projects - nine in all.

As the school year came to a close and Barb's retirement date loomed, she asked me to bring my camera along and take a few photos of her felted wonders. Of course!

You guys, you will DIE from cute poisoning when you witness these. Are you ready? Here we go.

Isn't she amazing? I can't decide if my favorite is that coy snail or the viking (he has so much love to give, if only he wasn't alone on that rock!).
