German Shepherd and sockies.

 I wonder if you can guess what this German Shepherd is made of? I'll tell you! It's a dry needlefelted 'painting' made by my eldest daughter. This is her first try in this medium as usually she works with paints. But after seeing my wool stash and some photos on the net she wanted to have a go. We were amazed at how well she has done this picture. It looks like a painting! Needless to say that my wool felting stash has somewhat depleted as she has squirreled them off to her house along with the needles to go with it.
 In a temporary frame on my mantlepiece. She will be doing commissions if anyone is interested in having a doggy/cat/pet portrait.

This is one of my makes of the week. Two little sockies, can't help making them occasionally! Cute little monkey socks and a cheerful flower pattern. Best of mates as you can see! (not ce marked, so not for kiddies) We have needed our hats and scarfs this week as it has been a tad chilly.

                                                   The cheeky triplets made from some scraps of baby socks.
Getting cosy in the furry blanket.

Does my bum look big with this heart on! haha.
