I went to a sweet yarn shop in Vancouver called Baad Anna's. She had some delicious yarn that I just could not resist.
I made this crochet scarf (my first with patterned ribbing)
I love the colours.

Needle Felted Brown Bear

My friend Vikki was very happy to receive one of my needle felted bears for her daughter, who just became a big sister! Brynn, who is 6 years old, asked what my last name was, and that is what she named her bear! How adorable is that?
This is Nasby , the silly little bear.

Needle Felted Goblin Doll

Here is my attempt of a goblin creature, inspired by Tanglewood Thicket. She has an incredible imagination, and her creatures are fantastical!

Another Needle Felted Relief Technique

My hubby is getting concerned with all of the "taxidermy" that is going up all over the house!
I just cant help it! I love this relief technique! I am desperately seeking some other samples from artists who do this if you are out there please send me a link to your site! I spend about 8 hours on these guys...which satisfies my need for instant long as I can start and finish a project in the same day, I am a happy camper.

My first needle felted relief technique

The philosophy I live by is simply : the best way to learn is to just do it! This lion is a product of that, and I certainly learned a lot! Inspired by stumbling upon the awesome Birgitte Krag Hansen's website, I am thrilled with the results, and I am already planning many other relief type sculptures. It is fun and addicting to watch their faces come to life. I am so intrigued by needle felting because it is hard to believe you can sculpt such detail with one tiny little needle!

First needle felted landscape

I was surfing for inspiration, and definitely found some from the incredibly talented Andrea Graham
This is my attempt at a river bed. Landscapes are so fun...however I felt like I couldn't stop adding to it. Finally it was exhaustion that decided when to call it quits! LOL.

New Needle Felted Critter

Ever since the clever use of the term "SQUIRREL" in the movie UP, it has been an ongoing joke amongst my friends. We use it to represent any type of distraction at work...lets say for example; a hot guy. One will yell Squirrel, and the whole lot of us will look up from whatever we are doing...strickingly similar to the dogs from the movie! It's hilarious! So this little guy will always bring a smile to my face. (even though he looks more like a chipmunk lol)

The Legend of the Hornycorn

Meet Violet, the "Hornycorn" dedicated to my daughter, for whom I bought a Unicorn costume one Halloween when she was 4. She proudly told everyone who asked that she was a " Hornycorn" My husband & I will forever laugh about this one!

Naraygon The Dragon

Hello, and welcome to my blog!

I hope you will find some inspiration here. I am always up to something!

This is one of my first 3D needle felted art sculptures. My photography skills do not capture all of his beauty and detail. He was so fun to make, and quite a challenge. His name is derived from a combination of my two children's names.
Nathan & Raya. Thanks for looking!
