Happy New Year to you all!! Late I know but before the Chinese New Year!
What are you planning for 2015? Great plans and ideas here at SheepyCreations…will share over the coming months.
Felting needles were put away for Christmas on the 24th December, and are yet to make a reappearance. Have been trying to knit a handbag over the festive break as knitting is a little more sociable than needle felting, but that is another story.
Family visits, the good, and illness, the bad, have meant an extended break over the holiday season. Having my sons home from university was wonderful and it great witnessing what amazing young men they are growing into. Sorry, but I am just so proud of them!! Just into 2015, my OH decided to keep up his amazing generosity, having bought me Horace for Christmas, by sharing his cold. Of course, it has to go and land on my chest resulting in me barking louder than Dexter…On the mend now and ready to get back to ‘all things sheepy’!
2015 is the Year of the Sheep. So I have high hopes for both myself and SheepyCreations, after all my name does mean ‘ewe’ in Hebrew, so this is our year!!!
SheepyCreations will go on making the miniatures, but I have promised myself some creative freedom. Not sure what this will fully entail but pictures, sculptures, wearable art, etc. are the outlines.
Well, before I start on the new range I will share over the next few days some of the miniatures, made before Christmas.
This beauty is Bridey, and was my first American model. She was commissioned by a lovely man David for his wife Donna’s birthday, it took a little bit more organising, but the result was my first needle felted sculpture to go across the water to America. David was so excited when ‘Mini Bridey’ made it to Arizona, needless to say Donna got an early birthday gift.
Now settled in to his new home.
I love making Haffies as they have such wonderful colouring, and when doing their faces it is the subtle way the colour fades and greys are introduced that really can bring out character in their faces.
Myfanwy sorry but still I have not managed to start the winter journal, but I have good intentions to catch up very soon! Honest….
