This week...

Hello, It's been busy here, but I managed to get a few things done...



The first 2 pictures are brooches with pin backs sewed on, the last one of the two toadstools is being featured in the 1000thingsalpaca team challenge right now on etsy. they're all available in my daughter's shop:

You should go see the new dinosaur and elephant that she needlefelted!



And I painted these 2 little, tiny canvases of "belly birds" for my etsy shop. I have so many more in my head if I just had time to get them all painted. I like them because they're so quick... unlike the huge palette I'm still working on slowly. Pictures of that to come soon, as well as pictures of the wonderful sketchbook I received in the mail and will be adding my spread to soon.
and don't forget to stop by the angelfaces charity auction going on, it's almost over...just click on the picture on my sidebar!

Now off to work, and later to check out paint party friday at the link on right, whimsical wednesday at the link on the right and crafty fridays at the home sweet farm link on the right and creative fridays at natural suburbia @ http://naturalsuburbia.blogspot.com/2011/05/creative-friday.html,and fiberart fridays @

  23. haven't tried needlefelting; I'd probably do them in raised embroidery, 16th century style. Love the mushrooms and your belly birds, they are really cute. Happy PPF!
