through the way of Margaret Bloom from We Bloom Here.
Moomah Magazine did a book review of her book Making Peg Dolls and put in a photo of my pirate and mermaid. (oops, editor, you should have checked your sources!)
Margaret and I had a little back and forth chat about it. And there you go. Now, if only I had some source credit. :}
The local theatre group is doing a play about pirates. I volunteered/was asked if I could come up with a seagull.
A sitting seagull to be on a shoulder. Yep, no patterns. So I attempted to needle felt.
This is just the basic shape. I've wet felted it and when it dries, I will add details and hopefully, it will fool the audience. Who won't be sitting so far away as I wish. :}
They were calling for rain all weekend, but the sun came out, it's shining hot and lovely.
Have a great weekend.
