Also working on some other figures both for ourselves and for the shop, and ideas of other items other than figures whirling around in my head.
Works in progress
On Sunday I needle-felted a poppy for remembrance day - I donate but don't pick up the plastic ones, preferring to wear one that can be re-used over and over. I knitted and felted some last year and intended to make more this year but it hasn't happened, and I couldn't find one so made myself a new one this year. Imogen decided she wanted to make one too so she wet felted the red for the poppy, shaped it with my help and then needle felted the black in the middle ... very carefully!

So that's what I've been up to, happily stabbing away at the wool, and yes I miss sometimes as my poor fingers can confirm!
