After a first pass at the needle felting (with MUCH more to come) I am cautiously optomistic that the satchel won't look completely crappy. Maybe partially, but not completely!!!
Onward I go. It is a large piece with a lot of details, and of course the details are what makes the bag look so great. I do a little bit at a time and move on.
New yarn expected to deliver today! YAY! Nothing like the promise of a new project to make a knitter smile!
