wool painting

This is a felt painting I created last night... I've always struggled with wool painings but am happy with this one as it has nice texture and a certain style to it I think. I've used a variety of wools. I like the wave crashing, the boat sailing away from it. The woman is waving away to her betrothed Captain, I've dubbed this picture High seas goodbyes.

Today is a lovely sunny winters day, I'm making the most of it by visiting a new craft and patcwork shop in my area and am finding out if their interested in hosting a craft group. Wish me luck.

Soldier Peep the quail

we have had some excitement this morning! we've had in the incubator king quail eggs, six of them in total however only one has developed. He's a pied King quail. I've dubbed him Soldier Peep, he is very brave. My other half had to get him out of the egg as it had been too long and for some reason he hadn't turned himself properly in the egg to be able to eat the membraine and get himself out. We wouldn't normally intervene however we had felt the need to this time as it had just been too long. We could hear him peep in the egg.

Here he is in the egg getting a hand out from my other half

Here he is dried with a hair dryer gently

he's looking quite well, he's in the incubator keeping warm. We cross our fingers for you little Soldier Peep!

I'm featured!

Hi all I've been featured on this awesome website! Bronwyn is showcasing artists every Monday. she's a Melbourne gal like me, one day when I'm got spare time amongst doctors appointments we're catching up for a coffee and crafternoon.

special gifts

How cute are these? I found a lovely gal on Etsy who does these cute little round birds. I ordered a custom order because it was my five year anniversary with my other half and I couldn't decide what to choose for myself but when I found her and her birds I knew it was what I wanted. I ordered one Blue Quaker parrot, one Green Quaker parrot, one Rose breasted cockatoo (galah) and a Lutino love bird. The first three are my own pet birds. Nessie is the blue Quaker parrot, Jimmy is the green one and Bert is the galah. The lutino lovebird is my other halfs passion as he breeds lovebirds. I am so excited and cannot wait for this little ol' package to arrive. peachesproducts is the gal from Etsy who makes these brilliant birds. peachesproductstook this picture of them at her end I'll take mine when I get them. I can't wait!

also for your chance to be in the draw look back a couple of posts and you could win a great prize from me that is needle felted and made with love.

My new womens support group

I realize this is rather off topic for me however I have started a yahoo group hoping to start a supportive environment to share stories, information, advice and so on for women who suffer menstral cycle issues and problems relating to it. I've called it women 2gether. is the link for those that wish to spread the word or join. It's going to be a friendly and respective haven for women to vent frustrations, and find solace in the fact they are not alone.

I suffer prolonged, heavy, excruciating periods along with migraines and other symptoms that is undiagnosed at the moment. I hope to see you soon if you are interested at all.

Castle in the sky

I'm dabbling in some wet felting lately and this is my latest piece. I have used some needle felting and embroidery as well. I call it Castle in the sky. I rather like the calmness of the castle colors and the clouds around it. It's about five or six inches long and about five wide... I rather like how its come out. I don't dabble in wet felting often but it is fun to do small projects like this.

Wintery bird

Nature right outside our door, this was taken from our back door. It's such a wintery day today that even the white cockatoo is blending in! they must be feeling the cold and hunger. There were three hanging about but I don't think they liked the camera noises but I'm glad I got this one as it really shows how wintery it is.

There is meant to be snow in the hills near us... not surprising we can feel the ice in the air. My hands are that cold as I type this I'll have to find my mittens.

Don't forget about my give away, winner will get three surprise gifts from me.

wedding bear family

Hi everyone, gosh what a horrid day we're having, this bad weather is continuing all week, and to make myself sound old and grumpy we're getting cold wind with chills that seems and feels like ice is in the air even though we don't get snow where we are.

But this is my latest project, a gift I've made for a girlfriend of mine, she is getting married in 22 days actually eloping as she and her fiancee can't stand the family drama lol. They are running away for a romantic wedding of their own. She is actually 6 months pregnant so I joked that its a shotgun wedding.

But here is a little bear wedding family. I needle felted over the weekend. The little pink bear is the baby of this family as my friend knows the sex of the baby which is obviously a girl to be. I'm so excited for my friend ^^ we're actually catching up tomorrow afternoon for a girlie catch up of our own and I'll present her with this gift then.Don't forget about my give away which is running for the month of July. Just search back a post from this one.
