The hairs on my arms were on end the whole way home but things like this have been happening since the day I first picked up a felting needle. Someday, I might need to write a book about it. But something made this story even more magical - before talking with the owner, I had a discussion with another fiber artist I met at the farm about how serendipity led us both to our crafts - I even mentioned that if you don't pay attention, you might not notice it's happening. So pay attention to the signs - especially if a furry creature is holding it!
Here is my Felt Alive tribute to Freddie Mercury - (5 September 1946 – 24 November 1991)
Besides his lovely hair and mustache (suri alpaca) he is 100% needle felted wool.
Part of what I love about needle felting great musicians is listening to their music while I'm working and watching their amazing performances on YouTube during my breaks. This video of Queen performing A Kind of Magic live at Wembley Stadium in 1986 inspired this Li'l Freddie Mercury doll.
