Time’s Whizzing By…

And another fortnight has disappeared! I have completed all current customs drawings (except for a friends) so looking forward to not getting all stressed out with finding time to draw. I’d like to do some equine inspired artwork at some point too.

I’d like to share a photo of something I have recently completed, its my first needle felted picture and its of a fox and moon. It took longer than I would have liked as I had little hands trying to ‘help’.  I really enjoyed having a go at this, I think its safe to say I’m a bit of a felt addict as I’m about to have a go at wet felting too.

I used merino wool tops and 100% wool felt as my background. I bought my tops from sarastexturecrafts.com, there are some beautiful colour tops available, I especially love the colour blends. Anyway, I have submitted  photo of my needle felt picture so hopefully it may be featured in Sara’s next newsletter!

Needle Felt Fox Picture

In other news…the small one is doing really well and we are very proud parents! She has been getting the hang of her walker although we carefully limit how much time she spends in it. This past week she has been starting to speak much to our joy and surprise. Yesterday we visited a private pool where she suddenly demonstrated that she wanted to swim. We are really pleased with T*’s progress and looking forward to further ABM next month.

Happy Little Lady

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

…And I’m still not ready! But I’m not to worried, the world won’t come crashing down if a few gifts don’t get to their recipients on time! This year winter solstice falls on the 22nd December and if we get the chance we’ll do something small to mark the occasion.

I have to confess to be addicted to needle-felting. I bought a kit from www.handspinner.co.uk and I’m loving it. Disaster struck on Friday when I managed to break a needle…cue a mad scrabble to order more needles in time for the Christmas postal standstill. I’m managing to get a bit done while little T has her daytime nap in my lap. I’ll post photos of my progress soon.

I’ve also been trying to fit in a bit of reading. I got hold of a copy of The Horse Boy by Rupert Isaacson, but I think I’ll have to come back to it in the future, I’m already put off by some of the references that are made regarding the horses. *Sigh*

Our Didymos Ginkgo wrap was converted on Saturday by Fay at Opitai and I am so excited! I’m anxiously awaiting photos via email to cheer up this miserable winter day…EEEEEEEEEEEEK!!! Lol!
