needle felted Peter Rabbit

This is a needle felted Peter Rabbit I'm thinking of entering him in the Felt alive contest. I'm just doubting myself a little. If anyone can help with feedback I'd love to hear thoughts and opinions on this guy. He's approx thirteen inches. And solid wool roving. I love how the photos turned out much better, I used white fleece as the background and an overcast day. Happy Saturday

more finds

Hi all its me again on this blustery cold Friday. I've got some good finds first off is this fab cardi purchased from Salvo's store in Boronia. I brought it awhile ago but haven't worn it but am seeing my grandmother on Tuesday night for dinner with my other half so I dug it out and thought I'd show it off here. I paid $5 for it, there was two of them I got this one and the one in black.
I got these today from Salvos in Boronia as well for Tuesday night this really cute necklace will match nicely. I'm wearing a brown top under the cardi on Tuesday night have to look snazzy for grandma.
paid $4 for it And these earrings were cute with the red thought would look nice with the cardi also
I brought this wallet because my other one I brought from another opshop the pockets didn't fit the cards and was useless in trying to get the cards out again.
I paid $3 for it I seem to have a thing for red at the moment and pink This was a great find last but not least is a dooner cover I brought from the Angliss opshop in Ferntree gully for $2! a queen sized cover there was nothing wrong with it and I loved the cottage feel anyways hope you liked my finds

Budgie Boy

I woke up to buckets of rain today and a sale on etsy! my 8th sale is this little budgie or parakeet. I'm making a custom for a lovely girl who sadly lost her pet budgie. Today I have an appointment with a psychiatrist (sp) I struggle with bipolar 2 disorder and major depression. I'm feeling very anxious so the needle felting will keep me nice and occupied. I'm about to go and get ready for the appointment now. Even thoughb I love rain I hate having to be in the car when its raining it just makes getting there so stressful. At least for my other half it does as he is the driver. Happy Thursday
