The thing with needle felting is that I never know when to stop. Is that enough? Or do I need a little more. Is it OK to have some fibers sticking out here and there or does every single one need to be neatly tucked into another. I usually just quit when I've had enough. This little doll is for Dubhessa's Class 1 Autumnal seasonal table. I wanted to use what I had rather than go buy roving especially for her. I didn't have enough bright orange and I didn't have a really fine felting needle, but she has turned out OK. . I used some pipe cleaners to form the shape and then padded it out with some raw roving I had for spinning. She took me two evenings of stab stab stab, which I think the man sitting on the couch beside me found a bit disturbing. He kept turning the volume up.
