Felted squirrel

Here is the squirrel I needle-felted for my Dad for Christmas. He has newly become a squirrel collector. Somehow my needlefelting supplies wound up in my suitcase on our trip to my folks' for Christmas. It started out as a running squirrel, but looked terrible, so he turned into a sitting squirrel and is much happier. Its Icelandic wool and about 6" tall. Now I know that most squirrels are grey, but that's ok. Maybe the next one will be grey.

Its one of my first animals and was much fun. Thanks to the felters list for sharing ideas !!! And to Kathy Barger for inspiration as well : )

Fall in Montana. We have more time of dry and snowy grass than green grass !!!

Happy December !!

Well, here it is December. The lambs are grown and sold. Being able to sell lambs was a new and fun experience. Hoping to be able to sell most of the lambs privately next year.
We've been going through the Chicken Pox at our house, all the kids have finally had them. One dd was covered with 100's, the other two kids had 3 each !!!!

I'm getting some Icelandic fleeces ready to get processed into roving. It will be combined with mohair, should be lovely when its done, brown, curly and shiny, much fun. This is a special order for a lady.

Hoping you all are having a great start to Winter !!!
