Needle felting

Yesterday was Spinning guild day and after a very quick AGM, an hour or so of chatting over coffee and lunch we were shown how to do Needle felting by a couple of other members.
Some folks went off and did 3D things and others went with the flat, me being one of them.
This is my effort

The base is Needle felted dyed Merino that was pre done and the edge is Wensleydale curls dyed with natural dyes rather than acid ones.
By far the least imaginative one of the bunch (other members efforts included a Seagull, a landscape and a Polar Bear that started out life as a Yorkshire Terrier but the fleece decided otherwise and wanted to be a bear) but I'm quite pleased with it
