Oooh this is LOVELY G, what a sweet little film, I love the music, what is it? and the bird is just fantastic, you certainly have taken to needlefelting - like a duck to water I was going to say...oh well.
Hope you sell lots in your Etsy shop, your creations are brill.

Really magical, Gretel. I went in feeling a little cynical and you charmed it right out of me. I also want one of your creations now.
