Spring is hiding so Molly has arrived

I know , there's not much of a connection between Molly's arrival and Spring hiding... but I ended up working on her instead of the outdoor stuff we planned and need to do. We have had days and days of rain and cool weather... not conducive to power washing the decks!

Molly is a 5" or so little jointed anime elephant... I have put her up on BearPile and will probably put her en etsy shortly.

It's a good thing that I have Molly and her friends to work on... the furnace is still running and it will be May 1 on Sunday! I may make a fire in the fireplace this afternoon and start on a bear!

demo result!

I was doing a needle felting demo at a show the other day and wanted to make something that would intrigue the children that were watching.... the result is Patches. Surprisingly it was the adults who checked back every so often to check on my progress! I think that if I could have finished him, he would have found a new home.... but I hadn't brought enough brown wool with me!
Patches was needle felted from wool and alpaca roving with a jointed head, black onyx bead eyes and a needle felted doggie bone. He is about 4 inches tall plus the tail!

Spring..... a bear not the season!

I finished "Spring" yesterday ( and it looks like she may be moving to Australia!) . I did have fun with three colors of Alison McKee's "Not Your Mother's Mohair"! You can't see her purple tummy, but she's got one!
I called her "Spring" because her greens are so new leafy!

Who would recognize them?

I had a show this past weekend with a kid's activity area. My daughter came to see the show and brought my two grandchildren along. This is the result of a visit with the face painter... one cheetah, one monster!

Herbie... a third treasury!!

Herbie is in a third treasury!

And he sold at a show I was at today! His new owner had a table across the room and she said he watched her all day!
I've left him up on etsy because he is in three treasuries but put a note on the listing that he was sold and there would be another shortly! Never had something in so many treasuries at all once!!

another Herbie...

We've been down to Tulsa to visit our son... and to bring his cat home. "Jack the cat" was a visitor while our son was gone on business trips. Jack would rather stay with us than be in an empty house or at the vet's for a week! Jack was really happy to be home!

This year's chicks and eggs have been a lot of fun! Two went to Hawaii! I decided that another white egg was a little boring and decided to do a multicolor one. Is it one from one of those fancy breeds like MarthaS has? Or did someone dye it before Herbie hatched? I've posted HerbieFive on BearPile. How about a duckling next?
