At the textile fair I picked up a few of these batts from Wingham Wool Works.  They are from Estonia and are the product of various sheep over there.    I have to say they make needle felting a great deal more fun than stabbing a ton of Merino roving.

This wool just goes quickly into shape and its just nice and fluffy and great to play with.

Sorry this is not a very good photo, I seem to have had trouble taking these, did some yesterday and they were just as bad!  But here you are, one little robin, bob bob bobbing along .   Here is a side view, the wings are not separate, I just used the needle to enhance the shape, quite a performance getting them the same size, but it was very enjoyable making this little bird.

We have hair!

At last, we have hair!

I trundled off to the textile fair on Saturday – and Sunday for things I had forgotten – and bought my little witch some hair,  even the handbag has hair!

Now all she needs is some transport, still having problems with the brush end of the broom, but hopefully by this evening she will have a souped up  XKR of a broom!.

Little Miss Pumpkin Head

What do you think to this little lady ?  Do you think she needs hair, was thinking of green a la witch hair.

She is made out of merino roving, and started out as three pumpkins and then by accident I just piled them up on one another and Miss Pumpkin was born. So, what do you think, hair or not?

Oh she does have a pumpkin handbag, but not loaded the new pics yet, will do that when I have decided about hair.
