This little critter started out as loose wool roving in a kit from Michael’s. First attempt needle-felting. He still needs a name.
more old things.. a quick digital doodle from last October.

So, naturally, I decided to go with variegated threads in a rainbow wheel.
Unfortunately, the piece lost momentum and was set aside during the move to the new apartment.
But, I have found it and am working on the last two segments — purple and pink. Once those are done, I’ll remove the interfacing (used for tracing), and decide how I want to mount/frame it. Perhaps in a hoop.

It doesn’t look nearly as bad as it feels. Which, honestly, isn’t that terrible (though I have a high pain tolerance), but it is definitely going to hamper my ability to MAKE THINGS for a little while. Just until it stops hurting to use. Since… it’s my makin’ things hand.
Right now would be a useful time to be ambidextrous.
