Hatching Ducky and Being Featured on The Indie Tot
All kinds of excitement today ... I'm just about finished with needle felting a little duck called "Ducky". I'm waiting for the paint to dry on the wooden plaque I'm going to put him on. I'll post a picture of him without the plaque at this moment. I tried something new ... I mixed real feathers in with the fleece to see how it would felt and I'm pretty happy with the result. Ducky might look like he's having a bad hair day but I think it just add to his character, he really looks like he's just gotten out of the egg! Now I have to keep an eye on Ducky since our dog, River spotted him today and got all excited about a duck being in the house. See, he's a bird hunting dog and even though he hasn't gotten trained to do so this dog is in love with anything that looks, sounds and feels (anything soft in his mouth) like a bird. Now our cat also took an interest in Ducky and tried removing Ducky's feathers so I had to remove her from my studio to keep the little guy safe!
Then I got an e-mail telling me I got featured on The Indie Tot so I'm all excited about that news. So check it out for yourself by clicking on The Indie Tot button on this page and it should take you to it.
That's about all the news I have to share with you today. Thanks for stopping by.
