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.

Thanks everyone! Joanne, I hand sewed her and dyed her mohair. She was a lot of fun to do. I really like the anime style of teddies. I think because it's so different from what I normally do.
