My Easter hen and other makes

Happy Mothers day to all you precious mums out there, I hope you get thoroughly spoilt and looked after on this celebratory day! I have found a little window in my day to post about my needle felting workshop I went on last Saturday. The aim was to make an Easter hen. I have never needle felted before and I was excited to learn a new crafting technique as I have always admired the beautiful things that can be made with this material.

It all began with a hairy, woolly ball and some very sharp barbed needles and a lot of stabbing and shaping which was a great stress release!


Then we got to admire and choose from lots of woolly colours



And learnt how to shape wings and make polka dots and flat pieces of felt to make my hens crown and tail.


And so, my Easter hen Harriet was born...




Everyone's hens turned out differently and it was wonderful to see how each one of the 5 of us made different hens from the same materials.



We got to bring out little starter kits home and I have made a polka dot heart since then. I hope this will be the beginning of a beautiful crafting relationship :o)

Lastly I thought I would show you what little pins (and an extra crochet covered pebble)I made for my blog swap with Hannapat of Cosmos and Cotton organised by the lovely Jo of Three Stories High




You can see the gorgeous gifts I received from Hannapat in my previous post of collages. I love this sweet blogging community of generous and loving people.

Have a wonderful Mothering Sunday everyone

  7. I like the idea that stress relief is inherent in needle felting ... perhaps I should take it up! Hope your plans to move are going well and that any stabbing of wool with needles that's happening where you are is just for fun x

  18. My Ex dumped me two weeks ago after I accused him of seeing someone else and insulting him. I want him back in my life but he refuse to have any contact with me. I was so confuse and don't know what to do, so I reach to the internet for help and I saw a testimony of how a spell caster help people to get their ex back so I contact the spell caster and explain my problem to him and he cast a spell for me and assure me of 24 hours that my ex will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my ex came knocking on my door and beg for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married. Once again thank you, Doctor. Baluru. You are a truly great and gifted spell caster.
