Something Different

So aside from needle felting I enjoy quilting. Well, we've been remodeling our house for the last 7 years. Thankfully we are nearing completion. Anyway, there is a spot right in the middle of the wall in the master bedroom for access to the attic. So I decided we needed a piece of art to cover the area which is 24 x 36 inches. Here is what I came up with. I took 3 pieces of 1/2 yard fabric and cut them into 6 inches squares, mixed them up and sewed them together, then added batting and backing fabric and quilted. Placed it into a 24x36 inch frame and voila! We have access cover. Hope you like it. Oh and I will also do quilt commissions.

Remember the horse

Here's what he looked like a few weeks ago.
And here is what he looks like now.
He will be getting his mane and tail soon.
Next will be the addition of ears, eyes and facial features.

Meet Mack in progress

So, here I am. My name is Mack. I've gotten my tail, a bit of nose and a bit of color. I still have a ways to go but I think I'm starting to look more and more like a Whippet. I'll be making my way to Canada with Houdini and Emmy sometime in the new year. I'm thinking a new coat will be in order cause I heard that the winters get pretty cold in Canada. Enough of my rambling..

Oh yeah, I forgot to add that Houdini finally got his ears on..But it don't mean he can hear any better..Love ya Bro.

Hi mom!!

Black Whippet

Of course this whippet is along way from being done. This is the first time I have not used a core wool..This leetle gal is black all the way through. The toughtest part will be the eyes against the black wool. Thanks to Annie of Wild About Whippets for letting me use pics of her beautful black dog Zinfy.

Houdini in progress

Here I am in progress. Mom had been adding my coloring and brindling, plus my eyes have been set. Notice I don't have any ears yet..Gees she's slow. I do believe I'm coming along nicely. I'm in what's called a "down dog" pose in Yoga, or what is also called the "play bow" pose.
Thanks for looking and do feel free to post a comment or two.
Hi Mom!!

Meet Savvy Roo

Hello everyone, I leave tomorrow for England. I'm completely needle felted and sport a beautful hand beaded collar. I also have armature in my front and back legs for extra posability. I'm about 10" long.

Don't you think this is a sweet face..I'm off to my new house tomorrow.

Thanks so much for looking..Please feel free to leave a post.

More works in progress

Here are soon to be Mack, Houdini and Emmy. Each is a needle felted dog in varying poses. The standing one is 7" tall , the seated one is 6" tall and the last one is about 7" long. Each one takes hours of poking with a barbed needle. At this stage they are still many hours away from completion. Although, one of them is now getting some coloring and sample eyes. When the are finished they will make their journy home to Canada.
