A New Commission & a Week Break From eBay



Well Sunday has come and gone. As many you may have noticed, there wasn't any eBay listing for this week.  I decided that since this next Sunday is July 3rd and many people will be off vacationing for the 4th, it would be a good idea to give my sales a bit of a break.  But I will still be working on a few things. I'm presently working on a hedgehog. It's been a real challenge for me to create realistic hedgehog fur.  I  know that you can buy hedgehog mohair fabric. But it would feel like I gave in. So now I'm wet felting little merino ropes that will be needle feted in, painted at the root and then cut. It's a good thing this one is going to be small. I thought of doing a little hedgie when I purchased a small picnic basket.  I could just imagine one peeking out from the lid.

My next project is another commission piece, a life-sized crow.  The wool that I ordered for him arrived today. I can't wait to get started on him. Pictured above is my standing hare that I just finished for a client.  The hare is 12 inches tall, ears included.
