Apple for the Teacher….

One of the most difficult things I face every year is what to get as a teacher gift . I love the idea of taking the apple for the teacher concept and making it more personal.

I have recently discovered needle felting, now I am addicted. I went to a great little store in Culpeper , VA called 145 Art and Design. The wonderful owner Noreen sold me the wool roving colors I needed to create my first felting project. Bear in mind, I am a complete wide eyed novice and truly have no idea what I am doing, but there is something so therapeutic about stabbing a piece of wool repeatedly with a large barbed needle. Great way to get out some frustrations!.

The final result was this little apple…..not perfect, but a good start. Hope the teacher likes it!!
