I just finished this guy tonight. His name is Albrecht after Albrecht Durer. His drawing of a young hare was the inspiration for this guy. Little Albrecht is 7 3/4 inches long and 6 inches tall to his ears. This one is a bit different for me as he has no wire frame. He's needle felted densely and has a bit of heft. He has gently combable llama fur that was hand rooted in. He is adorned with a removable sheer lavendar and white polka-dot ribbon that has a hand cut felt flower permanently attached.

This little bunny is just 4 inches tall. He comes complete with his little spring flower base. I tried something new for his little wings. They were first drawn on to velum paper. I next glued floral wire to the wings so that I could affix them to his wire frame. After they were dry, a coat of liquid polymer was applied to the painted surface. After they were completely baked, I fipped them over and applied a coat to the un painted side and sprinkled some glitter before baking. They were a lot simpler than my old method and I like how they turned out better.

I just finished this little Lily this afternoon. She's only 2 1/2 inches tall ears included and her egg diorama is 4 inches tall. I created the egg out of paper mache. After it had dried I sanded it and painted it with a glittery blue paint. I then affixed german glass glitter over that. It has a flower shaped button glued to the bottom to help it stand. I hope you all like it.
