A needle felted Samoyed and an eye problem

Well, it's official, I'm a needle felting addict. I've got an addictive personality, so I don't know why I didn't see this coming. The trouble is though, I've got an issue with my eyes. I told the doctor I needle felt, and he said my eyes are having problems because I'm doing too much 'close work'. How completely rubbish! Considering I'm now a felting addict (and probably have been for quite some time) It might help if I have my glasses checked though, as they're as old as the hills (ok, not quite that old, but you know what I mean)

Anyway, as you can see, I haven't listened to a word my doctor has said (apart from the glasses thing) and I've gone ahead and made a needle felted Samoyed dog. My dog, Betsy, made me laugh so much with her reaction to him! When I had finished making him, I put him on the coffee table, in front of where she was lying on the sofa. Her ears pricked up and she just couldn't stop staring at him. She must have thought....How on earth did you get to be so small? You strange dog!

Here are some pics of him....

Love as always, Mrs Plop xxx

Needle Felted Sleeping Red Fox

Ever since I first started needle felting, I've always wanted to make a fox. But for one reason or another, I never seemed to get around to it.

But recently, I found the time to finally make one. He was great fun to make, and I used lots of great big wads of orangey red, brown and white wool fibre. I'm quite pleased with the result. I hope you like him!
Love Mrs Plop xxx
