Needle Felting
My sisters reaction when she
opened the Birthday gift I
made her.
a farmer, I can't afford to spend that much on gifts.  So, I took on the challenge myself.  After over 22 daunting
hours later I was thinking that six hundred bucks didn't sound so bad after all!  Troy was thinkin' the same
thing, only about how he could have gotten a lot more work out of me around the farm in all that time!  Never
the less the look on my sisters face was priceless and well worth my needle pricked fingers.
