At our retreat, there are usually two short classes offered.  The first class was Needlefelting taught by Eileen Gurak of Handblessings Designs.

We began by wadding up the wool and then stabbing it with needles with barbs at the one end, shaping it as we went along.  Two balls and a tail were fastened together by stabbing them with the needles.

Blue wook was then placed over part of the white wood and stabbed into place.  A tail was also added.

The blue bird needed a face and beak.

Wings were added, and here he is, all done!  Not as perfect as Eileen's but I am pretty proud of him anyway.  It was a fun class, with lots of laughter while we were stabbing away at the wool.
