Felter Skelter - your essential needle felting column from Mr X Stitch!
This month marks one year since I took over this column. It has been a pleasure bringing you my favorite needle-felted artwork and I look forward to more great things in 2014.

To kick off the new year, I give you the wonderful work of Sarah Mandell, aka Once Again Sam. Sarah is a multi-talented artist and needle felting is only one of her many talents. I discovered her work recently thanks to a feature on the blog Gorilla Glue and immediately fell in love with her miniature cactus gardens. The arrangements not only tiny and cute, they are exquisitely crafted. The variety and attention to detail in each piece is fantastic.

  • I have been wanting to do needle felting and this makes me want to even more! I would love a gorgeous pot of needle felted plants that I couldn’t kill with my black thumb!
