Crazy Times

It has been nutty here at the funny farm. I've been fighting an infection under my eyelid. Being on the computer annoys it so this won't be too long :)
My poor little toy poodle FiFi had a minor seizure on the weekend. She had not had one in so long I was hoping they were gone for good, but she is okay. It bothered me more than her.

My barn cat Ollie brought me a beautiful present of a goose leg. Not just any goose leg but one with a huge webbed foot bigger than his head. The bone is about 1" thick. I don't know how he carried it over the back door of the barn..but he did! The two cats are having a grand time playing with it, so as disgusting as it is I have not thrown it out......yet.
Finally Timmy has a sore nose. He has had this since I got him and it flares up every once in a while. I had a biopsy years ago but no results. It makes his nose swell, get red inside the right nostril and drip a bit. If you look at his mug shots you can see it starting. Does not seem to bother him so I don't worry...well maybe I worry a little.

Here are my new felties..I've been busy but now am going to take a break from it.

I've been counting sheep day and night! I love the blue guys pudgy face...

My Piggie!

Mr Lion with a real mink mane. Recycled of course

My newest Unicorn. She was alot of work. I added some "light" to make her more dramatic.

See you on Easter Thursday!!!

We love your felties (especially the ones on our living room mantle!). We are curious how you make them (not that we would even want to try). they look like hard work and yours have such personality. we just cannot figure out how you put them together. oh you artists!

Love, Dozer

PS: Please send us the goose leg, please, please

Dozer..you are not getting my kitties goose leg!
To make felties you take a ball of wool and stab at it with a barbed needle over and over agin. Then you stab it some more..and more..and more..you get the idea.As you stab the barbs on the needle grab the fibers and matt them together making felt. So you just add some here or there like you would with clay and just stab them all together. Stabbing something over and over is actually a really good exercise for anger management.
If you want to try it let me know and I will mail you out a little kit!

Gennasus said...

Those sheep are just gorgeous, you are very talented. I'm sure if I tried doing as you describe, no way would I get those results!

Hoping eyes and noses are sorted soon.
