Z’s Mobile: Needle Felted Beads

I’m so close to finishing Z’s mobile.  I’m not sure why, but this is one of those projects that I’ve needed to work on slowly rather than obsessively.  My cousin is turning 8, and I absolutely love her.  She’s a quiet soul, and I’ve always enjoyed the times we’ve shared sitting and creating.  As I construct her mobile, I find myself finding a new theme to my work.

This past week, I’ve designed four other mobiles.  One will include some needle felted killer whales I’ve had forever! The second uses my Baby Emmz while the third will have birds and pine cones.  The last mobile is only partly formed, but I’m thinking mushrooms.  As for Z’s, I’m 90% done.

I need to attach a couple of crochet hearts and needle felted beads, and the mobile will be complete.  I spent way too much time felting the beads today but came up with lots of ideas for other embellishments.  Here’s a few of the beads:
