Meet Jacob the Sheep

needle felted jacob sheep sideI’ve almost finished my latest sewing project. So rather than finishing it, I decided to pick up by needle felting kit and a big handful of spinning fleece, and make a sheep.

That really is the point. So many of my other craft projects take days or months, even years, to complete. It’s just nice to finish something in a couple of hours. To be able to hold the finished piece in your hand on the same day of starting it. A good feeling.

I need to go over it a little bit more with the needle too, but she can wait until I finish my sewing project. I’ve itched that particular craft urge now.
