Juniper branch in wool...


Our local Fiber Arts Guild hosted a Spin-In last weekend. We had lots of knitters, spinners, and some weavers and crocheters. Also, the vendors had wonderful yarns, roving, felts, and other decorative and handy supplies.

 When a few ladies showed interest in a needle-felting demo, I was happy to do it.  I had wanted to get started on a candle-mat that had needle-felted (cedar) juniper branches embellishing it.  I had asked one of my friends to give me a little cutting off her bush to use for inspiration and a guide.  So, that's what I used to demo how easy it is to get started in needle-felting a design on a flat surface. 

I got a good start, but had to finish it!  It was a perfect project for a cold winter's day, watching the football playoffs on TV.
