My colorful trivet

A reader asked about the colorful balls on my Women's Day table. Years back, I made a few felted wool balls like that, and even though the result was lovely, I found the process of rolling and rolling to make them all round and perfect quite tedious. But maybe it would've worked better with needle felting. I have never tried that.

This, though, is actually a trivet, made for me for Christmas by my sister. She bought ready made felted wool balls, and then she sewed them together to make the trivet. No need to say I love it!
