is here. I have no sheep... but this week I have found myself determinedly making myself a flock! It all started out with this little chappy - whom I fell head over heals in love with while making him :)
He's just GOT to stay at home with me! So I decided to make him a brother to go in the shop... And then while working on these, with their natural colours & the textures of the locks, my bronze moongazing hare caught my eye. mmmmm my brain started figuring out just how to recreate it in felt. The fingers started itching.. and a felted moongazing hare was born that afternoon :) She is mostly white - bathed in moonlight, I`ve felted in BFL locks so the white is textured.. and a couple of black Lincoln locks too. She isnt finished yet.. but will (I think) become a doorstop. I really like her.. think the hares may multiply too :) as they are supposed too in March!
I have also made 5 Feelin'Sheepish brooches / lapel-pins.
I used 3.5" hat pins for these. The little black sheep was made from the black lambs fleece from last Septembers charity event.. I washed half of it this week ready to use, and it is sooooo soft. The black pin is mine, as I felt quite fondly toward that little lamb - would love to of brought her home with me!
More about what Ive done with some of the others soon
