I am fortunate to belong to a wonderful postcard group called Postmark'd Art. We started doing element exchanges where you create a 12 x 12 inch piece based on the element then cut it into six 4 x 6 inch postcards. This exchanges element was "earth." For weeks I kicked myself for signing up for this exchange because I could not come up with an idea so I simply stopped thinking about it. While I was digging out my mailbox for the third day in a row, I was thinking about how much I was looking forward to digging in the dirt when suddenly I got the idea to needle felt. Once I got going all the stress and worrying that I had been doing evaporated. I even used some precious felt from my beloved Georgia (country not state) and lots of other roving that I had purchased but never used. I also felted in the little felt balls that were on one of my sweaters! It was almost as good as playing in the dirt.
