Latest needle felting news


Off to do two workshops in Oxfordshire -  one at The Fibreworks Oxford and another all day session at the dear old Queen's Head in Eynsham. Just managed to get a pattern finished for 'Crafty' magazine (coming out soon) and finish a couple of custom orders.



The elephant is very big (for needle felting) - 8 x 5½ inches. This sweetie is only a couple of inches tall, by comparison.




Not only that - I have some foxes and new style hares to sell, when I return - here's a little preview of one.

I like the elephant's knees....and his (her?) smile. You have a great talent for capturing those little silly details that give it personality.

oh that hare is just adorable. All your creations look so sturdy too. When i had a go at it i made a nice pony but it bends a lot and im sure its falling apart.
More needling needed i guess

Jeepers Gretel...you are a busy lady!

Congrats on the new magazine piece and on every one of these delightful new animals. Each of them has got that special GP look.

The larger elephant must have taken ages to make?

Best wishes on your travels. xo

Oh that little hare is sooo adorable. I am moving at the beginning of the year so think I'm going to invest in one of them :). I love your prints so much.
