valentine love spots

I made these needle-felted hearts for my shop and they were great fun. I sold all I listed, but made some for me. Soft and warm and love in your pocket.

Needle-felting is my favorite new art; I can't believe I'd never even heard of it until a couple of years ago at a Waldorf school fair, but am secretly delighted it's still under the radar. I bought most of my fiber from an ebay seller, lambkinwool, who has a small operation in Maine, writes darling personal e-mails, and won first prize in the state fair this summer for her fleece. I love knowing my fiber and getting small, personal bits. Like knowing my bag of snow-white alpaca (bought at the Shippensburg Corn Festival) came from a little sweetie named Laurel Rose.
