Christmas Robin

Happy Christmas! (10 days early, I know, but I am in the festive mood)

So what do you think of my card design? Obviously without the self advertising text.

Robin Card

Shall I do other designs ready for next year? (Cannot do them for this year as it is too late for printing last minute etc.)

If anyone is interested in seeing more, let me know! I would love to do more designs and sell them!

YouTube Channel

Starting my YouTube channel with a video of the squirrels in Singleton Park today. Don’t worry, it won’t all be videos of squirrels, I plan to start recording my work progress of needle felting with my snazzy new camera! Woo! Keep an eye out for it, in the meanwhile, here is that squirrel video!

Dark Skies

Happy Easter! I hope you are all stuffed with chocolate and are enjoying the weather! It’s been the hottest so far here in Wales, UK. Here is a catch up with what I myself have been up to over Easter.

I have indulged in buying some new felting needles from Heidifeathers, who always provides great needle felting equipment and service! These needles have 10 different types, 30 in total. I shall look forward to trying these with my projects!

Currently I am working on a scarf, the patterns are to represent dark skies inspired by Turner, Ian Aivazovsky and Moy Mackay. The scarf shall illustrate the one verse of Edgar Allan Poe’s poem Annabel Lee where things start to go dark, the angels in heaven are not happy and a cold wind blows out and kills Annabel Lee.

These are a few felt examples of colour experiments.

Still not sure what colours to settle with, but keep an eye out for my next blog post to find out!

Mini Felted Owl

20140102_005633

Decided to challenge myself and make a mini felted owl! This one is the size of the previous felted owls face. Surprisingly I only pricked my finger once. Here is it against my finger for scale.

Either I am telling the truth, or have a very large finger.

Felted Owl

20131230_22234420131230_222409

Created this fellow with the felting kit I had for Christmas. Isn’t it adorable?! …despite it being a little lop-sided.

100% British Wool

If you are interested in making one yourself, or another animal, then head over to http://www.craftylittlesheep.co.uk/

This website is great for books, wool and tips!

Creating this owl was my first time with the sponge mat and a single needle, instead of the brush mat and multiple needle tool.

P.S. I didn’t use all of the wool, so I got some left over to make a mini one!

New Wool For My Birthday

image

This beautiful coloured wool is a gift from my parents for my 20th birthday last week. Its even more beautiful as it opens out to a sort of netting, and you knit the edging of it. So far I have done this much to give an idea how it looks.

Keep an eye for when I post the final piece!
