It's been a while since I needle felted so I have poked myself one time or two maybe. Ouch! But I love felting in public. It's always a conversation starter with adults and kids. They are totally fascinated by what I can do with a needle. The Oohs and Ahs are quite encouraging. So I keep going till I run out of wool.
I am also hoping to set a good example. A woman who was watching me work the other day said to me: Wow, you know I used to knit or crochet while going to my sons games and waiting for the action to start. Now I have my phone and I just mess around with it.
Just imagine how much creative energy gets lost these days because people - grown-ups and children alike waste so much time on phones, Ipods, and other electric gadgets. If all of that time could be put into creating stuff. Hmmm the world might be completely overrun with cute bunnies like this one?
I think I have to stop myself and work on some little lambs or chicks. The world needs all kinds of cute creatures. So stop wasting time playing games. Get creative kids, big and small!
