Time for another Show!!

Hello!!! How is everyone doing?? I hope all you crafty peoples are happily creating to your hearts content! There is just nothing like that sence of achievement when you finish something you are really pleased with!
Speaking of which, I have some new things to show you. I am really pleased with some of them, and they are all pretty good really, I guess, kinda, lol.

First up is more of a 'sculpt' as it were. Missy is a big girl at almost 9 inches tall. She is felted in natural wools over a wire armature! I wanted to do something a bit different as the show that is coming up is the Arts Festival and I wouldn't consider a lot of my work to be 'Arts' really! (wonders what the heck she is doing having a table at THIS show! eeekk)

Her tail is wired also and enables her to stand alone.

Her clothes are felted on, tre chic!!

Trying to decide if she needs whiskers, she will probably get some!

This is how she started out, the wire armature has had one layer of wool in this pic.

Wilber is felted in a mix of corriedale which was hand dyed and a fibre called Glitz so he is a little shimmery and sparkly. It's a really fine fibre.

Not sure of this guys name yet, currently it's Jim. He's a bit different, felted from a lovely hand dyed Alpaca which is quite unique.

This little guy is felted from a gorgeous hand dyed rainbow mix!

Dress ups! This little girl bear has gotten into Mums best dress and her pearls!

Alpie is felted from natural Alpaca and I'm really pleased with how he turned out! He was my first bear for 2008 and I think I am off to a good start! :o)

Well, that's it for this posting. I have lots to do tho, working on my next piece already and I have plans to do more 'sculpting' for the show so that I can fit in a bit more! :o) Thanks for taking the time to look through my work once again!

Lisa.... not to worry about it being an "Arts" festival. You will be shocked at what some people call "arts".

Everybody likes to think their "stuff" is art. ...but, believe me, there will be a ton of crap unless it is what they refer to here as a "juried" show. Where pics or samples are actually viewed and accepted by people in the know.

Your little guys and gals are definitely works of art in many respects. You will be very well received.
