British wildlife abroad.

I've been busy with the woolly stuff again people. I'm afraid your going to see a lot of this this year as I'm hoping to do a lot more art/craft fairs in 2014. Here's little Robin Redbreast in felted wool. He's now winging his way to new home in the USA with a travelling companion...
Can you tell what it is yet?
Here he is finished. A wily old hare, ready for his long journey to the States.

Love Fi x

Your work is absolutely stunning and I am always amazed by how you can do this with felting. I don't understand how something you can roll about in soapy water can still come out so perfect and lifelike. I take my hat off to you.

As far as I am concerned Fi you can post stuff like this every day - your work goes from strength to strength = I am so pleased. The area must suit you. We passed the end of your road today, so thought about you.

So love the Robin Fi, it's just beautiful and the Hare looks amazing too.
What were they made into, if you don't mind me asking........

Your work just amazes me. This is something I have never seen done before and I am so wanting to buy a piece from you.

How would that work?

I would LOVE this robin! I would also love to be able to make one similar. I haven't the vaguest how to start anything like this as the nearest I have been to felting is making a bag and washing in hot water!

Your hares and other animals are so undescribably beautiful (if I've even written a correct word for that)
