Felty pictures

My daughter felted this little robin for me on some wool fabric and then I added some needlework.
Now what shall it be, a nice big brooch for a scarf?

Nope, found a box frame upstairs that just fitted and with an added label which says European robin in Latin (I did alter the label slightly after I took the photo) it makes a nice little picture.

Everybody squash up, and make room for little Robin Redbreast on the mantelpiece, which is getting rather crowded!  We have a nest in the honeysuckle in our back garden which comes to life in spring time with a family of robins, so sweet. There is also a robin that lives out the front somewhere, but never the twain shall meet, cos although they are so cute looking, boy do they hammer each other given the chance!

Now how cute is this, just too cute for words!! Eldest daughter, who needle felted the German Shepherd in my last blog, made this for her sister. Yes, needle felting again. How clever of her. Her facebook page is Amanda.C art, she has also done a pug portrait, which is on her page. Commissions welcome.

Here is a peek at some needlework I have been stitching, more about that next time.

This weeks linky parties are;-
