…for more snow!?
This is the view from my window ~ today…what happened to Spring?
Old man winter isn’t giving up without a fight here in Michigan! Nevermind…I’m still working on bunnies and preparing my shop for Spring re-opening! I’ve been making soap all last week too!
This primitive bunny is a smaller version of some of my earlier bunnies. He’s stitched on muslin, painted with acrylics, bead eye and stitched nose. I dry-brushed a bit of color in his ear and added a wooly tail. I needle felted a carrot in two halves and then needle felted/attached them through the ‘center’ of the topiary base. Added a few snippets of green wool for carrot tops.
Oh, and tucked in a bit of dried fragrant herbs before I stitched him up!
I’m hoping for warmer weather since we’ll be shearing sheep this weekend….!
Yes Jenny, this cold weather sure is hanging on a long time. By the time it warms up, the katydids will be singing! lol. Our sheep were sheared 2 weeks ago and I had the shearer leave some on…poor things, they didn’t get a clean cut and looked as though someone had stripped them down to their longjohns. Very comical and naked looking, they are/were. (: -Amy
Enough with the snow & cold already! It’s difficult to think about gardening…just worrying about my sheepies. I’d like to knit them all sweaters, but they’ll have to settle for extra grain & hay!
