What shenanigans are these two up to??!
“I just finished my latest 2 Halloween kitties. The black & white one is a commission of a real kitty named Eddie. Both are solid Living Felt wool mounted on a slice of cedar cut on our property. Eddie has real whiskers.”
-Linda Maurer-Wonser, Michigan
Such delightful fall creations and so wonderfully felted!
“Here’s my first attempt at needle felting…even though it’s still warm here, fall is in the air! Made from LF core wool, MC-1batts (including fairytale pumpkin) and LF corriedale :)”

What a lovely gift and perfect for the season!
“Just finished making this bowl for the lovely lady who has been selling my silly pumpkins in her wonderful gallery the last 4 weeks. I have made 18 and sold 12, and she is not taking one penny for herself. She deserves so much more for her generosity, but I hope she will be happy with this little token of my gratitude.”
Becky Sullivan-Ollinger, Washington
What a perfect seasonal accent!
“My Autumn sky bowl. I used my mc-1 Orange, foliage and yellow and majestic blue. Wet felted with dry felted purple spiral needle detail, leaf and acorn.”
