“I am sooo excited as someone must know how much I LOVE creating foxes because one of the colours is my absolute fave…Pumpkin Spice!!! I am going to have so much fun with all of my new goodies and of course my designated 8 hours of creative time. Thank you so much Living Felt team.

Also…here’s a new fox! Titled “Mnidoo-waagosh” or… “spirit fox”. He’s mounted on a 8 inch flexi hoop and you’ll see that lovely Pumpkin Spice on his tail. I was inspired by Rachel’s lovely sunset raven for the sky in this piece and wanted to try making my own sunset. The trees in my fox are White Pine and they tend to grow all whispy here in these parts. The arrow in the water portion also signifies that what we do on this land also affects the life in the water.

Thank you so much everyone for all of your support and love on my last piece, making these has felt like coming home to me.”

This is truly an inspired piece, well executed and a great composition.

“Hi everyone! So I finally finished my second Woodland Style piece last night and it’s a big one at 10 inches across. I’ve titled it “Maang (loon) Chases Supper.” There are soooo many Living Felt colours in this one! A couple come from little sample bags I’ve had sent with orders…those are the greatest thing, they’ve got me using colours outside of my comfort zone which is always fun and adding certain colours on my next To Order list! :)”

Felted Mexican Cross Folk Art

Needle Felted Mexican Cross Folk Art Art by Judy Chapman featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Judy is quite a prolific felter and you might recall she won an award last year for one of her folk art pieces. This Mexican cross is perfect for our theme this week.

“Hi Everyone! I am really happy with my outcome after studying folk art patterns and going through a few fits and starts with this first folk art project.

I used a 38 Star (mostly) for the first time (thank you to the team that tended to my order recently)!

Very happy.

Hope you enjoy seeing your fiber in this pattern! (Midnight Blue, Violet, Orchid, White, Mandarin.)

… you all are just plain great!”

Fun Needle Felted Beetle

You would never know that Rachel just picked up needle felting last fall! Check out the realism in this image!

“My first car was a ’74 Gold Super Beatle and I’ve missed it everyday since I sold it. I thought I’d pay a little homage to this fabulous car by doing a wool painting of a ’69 bug. Used lots of different LF MC-1. And had a lot of fun taking a trip down memory lane while working on this cutie.”

We shared this lovely piece during our Wooly Wednesday broadcast earlier this week — isn’t if sweet? JoAnn always tags us on facebook with #livingfeltwool. We love seeing what she’s up to!

“Wanted to share my pincushion with this week’s themed colors! I used my own pottery base (I own MudWorks Pottery in Pennsylvania) and Living Felt’s core wool and several MC 1 preferred batts! Love your products and really love the customer service! “

Stunning Needle Felted Cat

Needle Felted Cat by Irene Clark featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Yet another truly remarkable needle felted cat by Irene Clark. Her realism is just stunning!

“Here is my new polydactyl red tabby (mackerel) kitty. This is a surprise gift for the owner. The cat is facing some health challenges and my heart breaks for the family that has to go through it. The cat is made on a wire armature, all corriedale, reverse needle, glass eyes. I am terribly nervous about this cat because nobody asked me to make it.”

Wool for Cozy Birds’ Nests

Wool for Birds' Nests featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog

Last week we began sharing felted birds and things with wings… but it’s also a great time to start putting out some fiber for the real birds! There are lots of ways to do this, like these little wire cages. These also make great gifts!

Keep the yarns under 6″ long and make sure to include some plain white fluff. Other fibers like twigs and straw are great additions!

We would love to see yours! For more inspiration, you can also see our birds’ nest from last year using fishing net.
