Needle felting!!!

Oh my goodness I have found a new craft!! I guess it has something to do with my craft ADD? Anyway, on Sunday I went into a wool spinning store in town and I had heard about needle felting and watched a couple of you tube videos on it and thought what the heck, let's give it a whirl. So you buy the wool like this below...I don't know the technical name but anyway I wanted to make a little sheep so bought some white and black and the girl sold me two needles in case I break one. The total was $4.50 for the whole lot! How cool is that? So you shape your wool into balls, logs, whatever shape you need and all you do is start poking with the needle...that's it! I guess the poking of the needle makes all the fibres nat together? Anyway, I am not really sure I like the face of my sheep but hey, my first may look funny but I really like the needle felting!
This is just a little sample of the wool...I had a bag full.
And of course my pictures are out of order...just can't seem to get the knack of getting them in the right order? any suggestions? So I got this picture off of google cute are these?

Here is the progress so far...I am not finished with him/her yet but this is what I have accomplished so far...a little sad looking but it was fun to make!

Again, pictures out of order and found on google images...hmmm...I am thinking a cupcake or an owl next?
So funny story, the lady that sold me this stuff is holding a workshop today at the Seniors Centre in town and told me to come...okay first off, do I look like a senior??? I hope not!!!! But I phoned the Seniors Centre yesterday and they said sure come, no problem that you aren't old I am heading there today to learn flat needle felting...I can't wait!
PS-9 more days until Florida!!!!!!
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!!!
Until next time xxooDebbie
