Warm owl

With her scarf and a pair of purple wellies this little girl is up for any adventure. I bet her day is going to be a hoot!
I knitted the scarf myself. Hardest damn thing ever!

Cherub mouse

Look! How ridiculously over the top is this little chap?

His happy little face as he brings you love

The wire in the tail keeps him standing up, despite having teeny tiny little feet. (The same applied to the fox from the other day.)

Bunny riding an alpaca

I made an alpaca on the train to Norwich (and yes, I have removed all the bloody wool!) And then I thought, it is just an alpaca, that's quite boring. So:

Bunny riding an alpaca!

I don't want to be allamaist but I think this may be a sign of the coming alpacalypse.
Incidentally, I learned the difference between a llama and an alpaca, apparently it is all in the ears and body length.

Teeny bunny. They prefer driving alpacas better than daleks.

Happy sheep

I'm working on a little mouse which requires a certain amount of precision to get the details right. So the other evening after I'd had a glass of wine I thought best not attempt to put a teeny little nose on mousie in case I balls up. But I didn't waste my evening, I made a little happy sheep which it is almost impossible to balls up even with the drunkest of felting (NB: if you *are* going to drunk felt be very careful of fingers. I learned this the hard way last night after a marvelous day out in Norwich!)

I worry his mouth looks a bit too much like a mustache.

All the colours!

Busy fox

This guy is rushing somewhere. Possibly evening class. I bet that bag is filled with books

I'm too polite to ask to look in there though.

Lagomorphic dalek

Remember a couple of years ago I made a mouse controlled dalek? I considered making another one for this craft fair but I get bored making the same thing twice so: bunny controlled dalek.

How adorbz is this guy? Incidentally, sometimes it isn't easy to see defects when you are looking closely at something all the time, and I see things in blog photos that I am not happy with. His dalek dome/dome nobbles need adjusting.

There's that whisk in action.

Hug Monster

Hugz please!

I don't know what this goofy fella is (or even *why* he is) but by the looks of him I think he found something you said funny.

Scary monster

This guy is super-excited about the craft fair next week, he's hoping to find his forever home.

Biggles penguin

I'm doing a craft fair at the end of the month so I'd better get a-making!

I made him at the beginning of the week, and it has taken ages to do the scarf, I sewed it inside out and then tried to turn it which took hours of teasing it with tweezers. Really not worth the effort!

Woodland Waldorf doll

A lot of people get freaked out by waldorf dolls (a method of doll making by sculpting the face and then putting a pink 'stocking' of material over it). They can look pretty evil-twee.
But I thought I would give it a go. Making the head is kinda fun actually. 

Don't you hate it when you get hood-hair.

I'm not terribly good at making doll clothes.

Little booties!
