Sheep King , Needle Felted Farmer Gary

Our very close friends Gary & Mary are our local sheep farmers in this area and Gary supplies a heck of a lot of my wool and it always amazes him what can be made from his sheeps fleece , When Mary saw my li'l scotty she asked me to make Gary's head, i jumped at the chance to have another go at yet another head and i'm sooooo happy with the way he turned out. I will be making a body for him cause i think our local sheep king really needs one, Li'l Gary is Needle Felted using a single barbed needle

Needle Felted Li'l Scotty

My son Sean asked me to felt the head of his best mate Scotty to give to him just for fun, I had to have a go and Man did i have fun. Sean thinks its Awesome and cant wait to pass it on. This is only the 2nd time i've worked from a picture and i really love the way he turned out. Big Scotty's gunna get a huge kick out of it and his Lady Love Erina will have something to throw when he's naughty lol
This took me a whole 9 hours of Needle Felting to make because i just couldnt put him down so its lucky i didnt have to make a body for him as well :)

the Real Scotty,

Needle Felted Mick & Jolly Roger

I'm really really loving this guy Mick, i love the expression on his face and i put my hand in so you can see how big he is. I'll definitely be making a body for him but just not sure how he should look yet. He looks like a Mick dont you think lol I didn't want to make an older person but as he was coming out i was lovin him. !! He's all needle felted using a single barbed needle !

I reworked Jolly Roger a bit because i wasnt that happy with him, Now he has a new bigger nose, i've pulled his eyes in a bit more, still maybe need to do more, and straightened up his mouth and chin, He looks a lot better now and probably needs a nice big fat body lol

Cheeky Milly

I'm trying not to stress so much when felting and making it harder on myself , its supposed to be a fun thing. Well i was having fun making Milly and she's just so colorful. For the first time i didnt actually add eyelids but pulled down the brow instead, Still cant make the eyes smaller but who care's as long as its fun right LOL

Frustration Plus lol

I started this Character the other night and i hated him. I have this idea in my head for making more human looking characters and they just dont work for me, yet, so ended up squishing him all up and making a whole new face straight on top. I'm liking him a lot better and i think i've come to realise that you have to just let the wool take you were it wants to go and not try to do something else. One day i'll try for that human looking person but for now i'll just try exaggerating some features and see what happens. He still needs some work as he still looks like most of the other characters i've made but I'm moving on lol
not sure i'll make a body for him either, i think i'll just watch him for a while and see if the next one is different.

The Big Day Arrived

I know a lot of you would have rolled your eyes as i went on and on about my Son ( Sean's ) upcoming wedding, Well guess what lol Its happened and its all over bar the shouting lol
I know i'm bias but it was the most Beautiful Day ever and all 130 guest's agreed it was the best wedding they had been to. Tears flowed during the service as a poem was read out that was written by Sean, I didnt know he had that in him. It was perfect
Sean has his 2 brothers as Bestman and Groomsman and his Best Mate as another Groomsman
Kelly had her best friend as Maid of Honour and her sister laura and our daughter as Bridemaids. Kelly's sister Laura made the wedding dress by hand . I'm sorry you cant see much detail in these couple of pics but it truly is Stunning. the Bride and Groom are so Happy i just love them to pieces lol
