Emerald

Yet another challenge... I cannot believe it! This time it's the Needlefelt Challenge.
Emerald!.. I couldn't find any green wool roving in my boxes. So I grabbed anything green: knitting yarn, embroidery threads, organza, fabric scraps,... and I needlefelted everything on a piece of old blue jeans fabric. That's the result. And I'm very proud to announce that I broke my first needle!
