After the incredibly mild winter we’ve had this year, I was not surprised to see that Jimmy the Groundhog was right about an early spring. Not only did my crocuses bloom this week, but my garden is awash in beautiful little periwinkle flowers. Some of our daffodils have even blossomed. All of these signs of spring sent me into a flower-felting frenzy. And that led to a critter-crafting craze. All of which apparently led to a lot of alliteration.
I was a little mad at myself last week for not posting on my blog, but I just couldn’t get myself away from all the little daisies and bugs. Anyway, here are some of my latest needle-felted creations: ladybugs, dragonflies, butterflies and bumblebees – each one with a coordinating daisy. I know I need to branch out into other types of flowers, but the daisies are just so cute, especially with the polka dots, and they’ve always been my favorites.

Also, in a house full of boys (even the cat is a boy), I guess I need a creative outlet for my girly side. I’m still trying to figure out what I could felt for boys. When I ask my kids, they just roll their eyes at me. I’m open to suggestions. :-)
