Eemeli comes to stay!

Thanks to dear gunknitter we have a new house guest, Eemeli. It is always lovely to receive surprise gifts and for me great to have chance to see a fellow felters work up close. He has the most wonderful face and I have to say I am very impressed with your 'needle' work Gunn. Thank you so much!
Here he is peering out into our completely snowed under garden. The snow is very light (hopeless for snowballs and snowmen)and consequently blows into deep drifts(great for snow angels!). Most days I have had a good work out shovelling snow so we can get out of the house and get the car out of the garage. Most of the shrubs are well and truly buried and I have no idea when I will finally seee my daffodils!

I am finally back in the groove with my felting - I even managed to do a large picture I have been planning for ages. I have been saving allsorts of yarn, locks, bits of silk and wool oddments to make the seaweed and plants. I am reasonably pleased with the composition, something I struggle with. I haven't quite got the sea right but nevertheless it's a start!

I am doing well in restocking my pincushions, owls, doughnuts and liquorice allsorts this time, plus easter eggs and bunnies of course. Only a few weeks to my next craft fair in early march, which will soon go especially as one week is half term!
How time flies when your having fun!!


  1. what a brilliant face on Eemeli!
    I love your picture too, it must be fun experimenting with diff fibres.

  2. Wow! That is quite a bit of snow! (For a California girl anyway:)

    Looks like Eemeli is waiting for Spring. Hope it is sooner than later!

  3. Hallo ! How nice to see Eemeli in his new home !! Thank you so much for your nice comment.

    I love your needle painted picture, "Deep sea". You have to make more of that kind, it is so lovely. I also like the other work you do too :))

    Happy felting and good luck with your doughnuts,eastern eggs and bunnies.
