NEEDLE FELTED CHICKADEE


 I am finally finished a needle felted piece.  I have to say, I love the process - it's very relaxing.  This piece totals 8 inches in height, consisting of a glass candle stick. holding a pin-cushion, made from hand dyed wool felt, stuffed with polyester and topped with 3 wool felt mistletoe leaves and three clusters of white Fimo berries and decorated with silver thread snowflakes.  The detailed, needle felted chickadee is just over 3 inches long inches long and 1 2/3  inches high, with German glass eyes, a black Fimo beak and wire legs covered in dark embroidery thread and sealed with gloss varnish.
