Still practising the needle-felted birds. (Which reminds me I must check my tetanus jabs are up to date.) Lynn suggested making a nest....but I think I made the wrong size. A snug fit, you could say. I tried making wire feet but couldn't get them right....so this one is sitting on a twig. (I thought I'd better make that clear because my DH took one look at it and said its feet are at a funny angle. Grrrr....)
The lovely Rini and I have swapped inchies this week. She sent me these gorgeous blue and gold ones which I absolutely love. You can see better photos of them on her wonderful blog here (my camera just wouldn't get the colour quite right today.....I think it was probably the light).
She also very kindly sent me a dangly charm which she made herself. It has a special fragrant stone in the middle.......which smells wonderful and goes beautifully in my bathroom (which is where Rini suggests putting it - see her blog).
My third gift is a friendship pillow....what a wonderful idea! I shall definitely make some of these in future. Thank you very much Rini; I hope you like the things I have sent you!
This year Halloween was a bit of a non-event in the area where I live....we didn't have one trick or treater! My son and daughter managed to have some fun though..... they went to (separate) parties over the weekend. You can maybe guess who they dressed up as (I spent about an hour drawing tattoos on Liz's back and arms).
I'll be posting the ABAA Challenge tonight because I'm away for the weekend and won't be able to do it tomorrow. Here's a sneaky preview of one of my pieces. Its just 2" by 2"..........
Hope you'll come and join us!
