Needle Felted Cactus

Mr messyfish looked at this guy last week when I posted it for Cactus Monday, and said "nice carrot". Hmmmm, he was genuine and trying to be supportive, so I have fixed my "carrot" by putting a saucer on the bottom of the TERRACOTTA POT and some soil in the pot. Does it look like a cactus now??
I never thought I would be a "needle felter" but I do love all that poking and stabbing. Great to release pent up energy, and relieve resentments... Oh, and I do like working on tiny little projects. Great for OCD relief. My company name is "Fiasco and Debacle. Small hand made cakes" I am going to change it to "Fiasco and Debacle. Small hand made things"...that way I can sell some of the strange crafty things I have been doing lately. It must be motherhood and hormones...who would have thought?

A cactus in a pot without a doubt!!! Do you follow a pattern or are you stabbing freely and making it up? Would like to have a go at this needle felting lark sometime! Good luck with your newly named venture.

Hi caroline, I just made it up... hence the carrot similarity. I am glad you see cactus though! I googled needle felting, then got some books from the library. I am sure that you would have no problem learning how to do it with your talents.

Well gee, I thought it looked like a cactus before but even more so now.

Isn't it fun how we can find something that we just love! And you do such a wonderful job on these.

I knew it was a cactus right away the first time. It looks more "real" maybe with the saucer and dirt. You do make the sweetest little things.

Hahaha, that's a great story! Well, now that I look back on it, I can see where he's coming from, but I still thought it was a cactus the first time around. Even more so now!

I'm going to try this some day.
