What are YOU Felting This Fall?

"I have always loved the look of felted art. I bought a kindle book on felting, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for. Last July, I went to San Diego ComicCon and there was an artist there selling the Woolbuddy kits. Wow, this was my chance to see if I would enjoy felting. I had sooo much fun (even poking my fingers!) I had to find more. I found Living Felt and I was hooked. I bought a couple of the NZ Corriedale bundles and started poking! Attached is a pic of the Pumpkins I have done so far. On some I did just the orange wool, then I got creative and started to mix some gold with it and a little bit of brown. Just in time for halloween and fall. I have so many ideas in my head now.... I just can't stop.
Thank you for all the tips and tricks you have on your website to help me out :
