Winter Woolly Tree

Up here in the misty mountains, I've been busy having a little break from the computer. It is nice to come back, sitting in front of the computer with a cup of chai, after a few weeks and see what everyone out there in blog land has been up to. I haven't been able to leave comments on some of your blogs as the word verification has been playing up.

I have been needle felting a tree that I promised my son's kindy teacher from last year that I said I would do for her. Things take their time in this household at times.



Well, here it is; a winter tree - bare, brown and woolly. I hope she likes it - I'm worried it might be a bit scary for the kindy kids. At some angles it looks like a hand reaching up to the sky. It was replacing another bare tree she had that got broken. I am tempted to put leaves on it. I'll see what she says when I see her.





There was a beautiful fog up here today - not so good for driving but Lou and I went for a misty walk, occasionally getting big water drops hitting our head from the heavy dew dripping down from the trees. We found a little spot that was perfect to take these photos.

Lou brought his tea cup full of sultanas for the walk.

That's such a great tree. I like it the way it is. You could easily put some green fleece on it to make it a tree full of leaves, so it would be great to use for story telling.

Love the tree!! what about leaves with a tiny bit of velcro on them so it can be a winter AND summer tree! I like it just the way it is though.

Wow, it would look great with pale pink fleece for blossom in spring!

Fabulous, as always! I love your felt stuff.
It looks beautiful in your mountains at the moment too; so misty and mythical!

Fabulous tree :) I love that you've taken it out into the wilderness for a little photo shoot. It doesn't look out of place at all. Felting really does have a "nature" look and feel to it.
