This year's Christmas was filled with lots of needle felted presents, as it has become my art/craft-form of choice these days. But, even prior to the holidays, I felted up this little guy as an 80th-Birthday gift for a dear friend. This friend is the one who taught me to knit, the one with whom I've spent many a yarn-filled (and conversation-filled) evening, and the one who collects and adores snowmen. So, what better way to celebrate a milestone birthday than with a party-ready snowman? He was fun to felt, fun to photograph, and fun to bestow on his new owner. Felted creatures are that way...naturally fun all around.
