Seahorse plush needle felted

The horrid weather continues and I'm full of a bloody headcold! I hate being sick, I'm hardly sick like this. Which is a blessing I know but its just frustrating when it happens. My poor other half is getting it too we all know how men are when they get sick! lol anyways this is my latest a needle felted sea horse plush. Available in my Etsy shop along with the Macaw and squirrel.

I love his bright red colors, I used a really pretty blush rose color on his belly and a lime green for accent. I used merino wool roving of course which is my favorite.

I'm also happy with how the pics came out I think I'm finally getting decent at taking these photos. About time haha. What do you all think?? Have a great weekend.

Grey squirrel needle felted

see told you I haven't forgotten my first love needle felting. I made this little squirrel last night in front of the telly. I've been watching sensing murder lately and its really good. Anyways this is little squirrel I can never think is grey, gray or grey? I spell it gray.

I'm thinking of learning how to make pdf patterns I really think some cute needle felting patterns would be interesting to try that way then I don't need to worry about printing. Hope you all have a great Wednesday.

amigurumi crochet cake

I am obsessed with crochet it would seem! I havne't forgotten my first love needle felting though. This however is a amigurumi styled birthday cake I created last night. I did have trouble with the candle lol the first one I made was too big so I shortened it and sewed it in a little. I think its turned out really cute. I love ami!

cake is actually how I got my nickname in real life which is piggles. This third pick reflects how I react to desert haha I eye it off and go gnom gnom gnom gnom until its all gone. My other halfs mum nicknamed me piggle as I was always the first to finish the desert.

Crochet along cowl

Here is my finished cowl for the crochet a long. It does have a few mistakes lol I kinda went wider again I dunno why must have added some stiches but I still like it. The different colors seem to hide most of the mistakes I think ^_^ excuse me for looking so pale. Yesterday I had a reaction to something and my whole face went red. It's still a little red, tight and kinda weird feeling but its a lot better I think I had a delayed reaction to some of the drugs from when I was in hospital Friday. But otherwise this is the cowl lol I digress.
It's not as long as what was intended.

I brought the wool from Kmart of all places lol its an acrylic yarn and was a 250gram ball. The colorway was called Brights.

Christmas bauble needle felted snowman

This is my latest a crocheted amigurumi styled Christmas tree bauble in acrylic gray yarn and needle felted snowman onthe front. I'm gonna be making more of these! I've brought a whole heap of yarn to play with. These are so much fun to make. It's about three centremeters in diameter. Would look cool on a mantle I think strung up with other decorations.

My other half just rolls his eyes now at me when I mention anything to do with crafts I always seem to go through phases

needle felted vampire bat

My hospital procedure went well and I'm recovering well at home. I didn't even feel icky after the operation which I normally always do.
But this is my latest feltie which I started last night and finished today, my Halloween vampire baby bat called Fang. I think he's rather cool though my other half thinks he's ugly and gremlin like! he can spread out and close his wings.

I brought the handmade wooden button its rather cute and works well as a stand. I'm selling it along with Fang on Etsy. Happy Friday

Bring on Spring sheep

So I'm having my last tea until tomorrow afternoon sometime its nearly midnight here and I'll be officially fasting... why? I'll be in hospital tomorrow for a day procedure I'll be having a hysteroscopy and dilation and curette. Hopefully we'll have some answers out of it.

Anyways this is what I worked on thanks to Spring inspiring me

I've called it a sheep halo it is a sheep wreath lol but halo sounded more original but anyways the sheep I did in natural gray, brown, beige, black and white and the green and brown balls are to represent the lands they live on. I'll post an update when I'm at home again.

needle felted black bird

look what I found when I went birdwatching today, a needle felted black bird! he's a cute little guy and followed me around the garden.


I've been making a new friend this week, I've been chatting to a lovely lady who works at the supermarket I go to. I asked her if she had any free time and if interested would she like to go for a coffee? we're catching up tomorrow at our local Gloria Jeans.

I've been feeling somewhat lonely these days, its hard to meet like minded women who are on a normal wavelength that I can understand lol but she seems to be the type I can talk to cause whenever I'm shopping we're talking a mile a minute. Is it strange I asked the check out chick for a cuppa?

Whimsy girl painting

I've been exploring mixed media lately and this is my first ever whimsy styled girl
I'm a member of and Tam the lady who hosts it has a free art class
which is awesome. Art, Heart and Healing its called. This is my attempt following a pdf
of that class. It's not bad, I wouldn't call myself an artist just yet of course but I'm having fun with it. I first drew out her shapes and then filled her in with acrylic paint. I'm going to have to get crayons. I might add more to this as I learn.
