A Milestone

If you've been reading this blog in the past few months, you know I've been complaining about my felting arm troubles. My plan for this year had been to felt a bird almost every day, but the arm has not cooperated with the Plan.

I've been practicing felting with my right arm, making bees. It's still slow going, but this morning I hunkered down and determined that I Was Going To Make a Bird With My Right Hand.
And now I'm thrilled to introduce:

Mr. Right Handed Goldfinch.

You should've seen me, bent over the felting, tongue sticking out the corner of my mouth. He really didn't take all that long, but I really had to pause many times as I realized I had positioned the work for left-handed felting, and how would I move it to do it right-handed?
It was a challenge, but now I feel so left-brain enriched!


  1. He's beautiful. By this time next year, maybe you'll be doing two at a time, one in each hand! Or maybe not. Could be dangerous....
