I have devoted this page to talk about my felting. The animals and creatures I create are totally my own. I sometimes use photo's to help me get a realistic feel and to make sure they are correctly colored and proportioned. I will also do replicas of pets for people such as dogs, cats, horses, birds or any other creature.
I discovered this medium quite by accident while surfing the net for animal pictures. I saw these awsome realistic animals so I clicked on them and learned all about needle felting. It's just like sculpting out of wool. I find the results very satisfying and working on them a good way to get my creative juices flowing.
After discovering felting I had to find out where I could get supplies. I went online and found a great sight called "Living Felt". They carry everything you need. I then found out about a place in Peterborough called "Needles in the Hay" that also carried wool roving. I was talking to some freinds one day and they told me about a little shop in Port Hope called "The Black Lamb" that has the biggest supply of colors and textures that I could ever want and it's so close to me! I was so excited .
So now I have a large supply of colors etc to make a lot of critters and I'm hoping to get a lot done over the summer to sell for Christmas. I think I'll put some up for sale on my blog. I have a bunch that I've made that need a good home.

Today I'm putting the finishing touches on a red fox I've been working on. I should be able to post it soon.
