Putting aside the ruffled feathers

I am not entirely happy but need time and space between me and the barn owl project

    1. Sadly I can't take credit for the tree, I love how the feathers turned out, so am not sure how best to add bulk without ruining the effect.

  2. This owl is amazing! I can't believe it's not alive! How did you do its feathers? I really can't imagine this. You are a master!!:)

    1. I like this kind of needle felting as it is rather like painting with fiber. You pull and blend the different colours together then use the needle to push them into place. Lots of fun if a little fiddly.

    1. Thank you, although he is still in need of some improving. I am sitting back and trying to give myself a little space so that I don't spoil what is complete so far. But he is not quite the right shape!

  5. He is just marvelous! Very realistic, I would never guess he was felted. Do you sell your creations?

    1. Thank you Jeri, I don't actually. Mainly I make them for fun then give them away as the workspace gets overcrowded. I teach full time so I don't have the energy to chase the market place.

    1. I rather like that way of seeing him. May well embark on another at some point, however am now working on a mountain hare.
