Addicted

Needlefelting is addictive! No wonder there are so many out there doing it :)

Anyways, I made another softie late last night. I wanted to make a blue bird for a friend but my hands obviously decided to follow some other secret orders as the thing shaped itself into a bear! Seems like Bluebeary from Kitty Vane was really a huge inspiration.

BB-I

He is about 8 cm tall. What do you guys think? Want me to make you something? :)

Giving needle felting a try

I wanted to try needle felting from the moment I spotted those adorable tiny bunnies and mouses and teddies and all the wonderful things that are out there (and I'm sure you've seen them too). After having the needles and some wool at home for about two weeks I finally gave it a go. And so Tomzi came to be.

He is 10 cm tall and has jointed arms and legs so he can walk around. I took him out for a photo shoot today because the sun came out and it was wonderful.

Originally I wanted to make him smaller but he just kept growing :)

And look what I was able to take photo of while outside:

bird house in use

I'm so happy this house is in use I can't even describe it. I'll so be hanging the other ones too!

Hanging Things

I've been working on bird houses lately. I tried and tried to come up with that beautiful form and make enough of them to give away for Christmas but I guess my goal was to ambitious. I did make a couple of them but I have a feeling they will be more of ornamental value. I'll hang them up of course and let the birds decide. They might surprise me :)

Anyways, here is one of them. Unfortunately the thing broke while drying from coloring and to think I wanted to have it all white (but then I decided to try something new and it resulted in catastrophe). Fortunately it didn't break to pieces so we still baked it and I was able to assemble it. There are others I need to take photos of as well. Not looking like this one.



hearts

I think you all know this. It's Ikea's lamp from Regolit series to which I added some embellishments. It's meant for my client's daughter's room and I hope she'll like it.



I really like trees and woods in this gloomy weather because it feels like I'm in one of Tim Burton's movies. We found this great trail the other day where you walk in promenade-like path for a few minutes and it's really charming. I have to take photos next time we visit.
