Little red box

Here's a box I made for a christmas present. Do you think Lori will like her new box?
It's made using different colors and finishes of red delica beads.

Hehehe, I think it looks a bit like blood dripping down the sides of the box.
Thanks for looking.

She's almost done

Meet Copy
I made this little rendition for my friend Laurie Erickson in Minnesota.
She measures 5 inches long and 3.5 inches tall. I need to do a few more things to her and she will be ready for her trip to Minnesota.
She's ready to play!

She is completely needle felted, has glass eyes and comes with her own needle felted mat.

More quilts

Yes, I'm still needle felting. In fact, I'm finishing up a Basenji for a friend. I should have it done this week.
On the other hand I'm still working on the fabric destash. So far I have made eight quilted runners. I have donated three of them to Handmade 4 Hounds. Handmade 4 hounds is a wonderful Etsy shop that donates all of it's proceeds to a different hound charity every month.
Here's the link to Handmade 4 hounds

Below are my three lastest quilts.

I have also finished another beaded box and started on two more needle felted items, a rabbit and whippet.

Oh goodness

Another week gone by and I realize I haven't posted anything. That's because everything is in various stages of completion. And, I've been trying to get some "wet felting" done. I need to practice my wet felting techniques to start on my Patricia Spark's Watercolor Felt Workbook. Patricia's book is all about doing pictorial felts using wet and dry felting methods.
