Roly' Poly

Here's little Roly' Poly. I tried something different for this little hedgie's spines. I sewed cotton crochet yarn in. Each spine took two stitches to anchor it in. I liked the look better than spine of my other spine experiments. But it was way too time consuming. It took me twelve hours just to do the spines. little Roly' Poly's auction starts on Sunday at the usual time of 6:45 PM PST.

Playing Catch-Up

 Pictured first is my latest creation, Ellie May.  She was listed on eBay and has already sold. I like how her fur turned out. I first needle felted a dark layer of llama wool and then rooted the light grey alpaca wool on top. It gave the fur a kind of tipped look.

The second picture id my Trumpet. Way back on October 25, I won a pattern from Jenny Lee of Jenny Loves Benny. I've long been an admirer of her cute little poppets. I was so shocked to learn I had won one of her prizes. Her work is just so sweet! If you're not familiar with her work, you really should check it out!

Finally, my Molly, a needle felted bull terrier, placed first last year in the Teddy Bears and Friends contest. There were several really nice entries and it was a nice surprise to see that she won.
