Who's a pretty boy then?


 Introducing Joey.
 Inquisitive little chap, giving us the eye.
 He's is my latest piece of wet felt for Yarndale and probably my last as time is getting tight now and I still have soooo much to do. Hopefully he and Gilbert will become handbags and greeting cards, I'm awaiting a second order as you lovely people have already purchased a quarter of my greeting card stock for Yarndale. 
Why a budgie?
I have no idea! 
That's just where my head is at at the moment. 
I'm eating, sleeping and dreaming Yarndale and there doesn't seem to be much room for anything else. I'm hoping I've solved my draping, hanging and setting up problems in my allotted animal pen. I never dreamed it would cause such a headache, I wonder if all the other exhibitors are struggling too. Mind you they probably have something a little larger than an ordinary saloon car to squish all their display stuff in. Never mind, I like a challenge. Let's hope it all works out as there is NO plan B!
I must just say thank you to everyone who's emailed me with ideas and suggestions but a very big thank you must go to my Dad for making me a folding frame to hang my work on and some wooden crates. 
I'm sorry I forgot your grass seed!

Oh he's so sweet. I'm doing Yarndale too and it all has to it in a Toyota Yaris!

We thought once the children left home we'd only need a tiny car.....

I have followed your blog for a long time and always admired your talent. This series of felting though is something else, I think you have found your real gift, they are amazing. I think they demonstrate just what an artist you are.

Lovely to see you in Reticule last week. Your felting is fantastic.
We are also very busy and need a car with elastic sides -any car designers out there? 48 hours to the Reticule Challenge Exhibition at the Quaker Tapestry Museum in Kendal. It will be a wonderful sight with 165 entries open Friday and Saturday see us on Facebook.
Good luck with Yarndale

He reminds me so much of my 'Nicki' that I had when I was around 8 years old, bless you. Are you going to have a card made with this image? I want to order some but will wait. Have a wonderful time at Yarndale, would love to be able to woosh over and participate.
