Even though I've already put in two months of planning, I have yet to begin because of it's overwhelming emotional content. So I took a little side line break to make something that's just pretty and fun. After I got the back ground made, it just called for a fairy.
I used new needle methods that I hadn't tried. I did most of the fairy with a single fine felting needle. I have a bag of novelty yarns that I never use, but have just in case. So I broke out some of that to play with.
