Easter eggs

With the ideas of my next projects still building inside my head it was time to felt something smaller to fill my need.
Well Easter is on its ways and I have a W.I. Easter egg making class coming up so I thouhgt why not make a couple.
I love that I had no idea how they were going to turn out.
I'm not sure if the colours on the first on are more Autumnal but the second one is definately Spring!
What do you think?

Inspired by the cold.

Todays work in progress was inspired by the freezing cold weather we are having at the moment and the need to use curly wool! 

I want to put more details on her yet and I think the pattern on her dress will change too....
Ps still not decided on what to do with the bust.....

What to do next?

I don't how other felters feel but after I have finished a large project that has taken up a lot of my time, I always feel at a bit of a loss what to do next.
Yes I have lots of ideas, too many really and I think thats the problem. So many ideas so little time.
So what do I do? I sit there stabbing core wool adding pieces until it morphs into the start of something.
This is where I'm up to today..

It's looking to me a bit like it could be a bust of someone. But what???? Thats the next dilemma......

Raymond Van Barneveld 40th birthday surprise!

I while ago I was asked if I could make a felted darts player, Raymond Van Barneveld for an avid fans 40th birthday.
 Well I'm always up for a challenge, so I said yes.  I must admit there were times where I thought I'd bitten off more I could chew, with a few complications along the way. 

After looking at photos of 'Barney' for the last few months I must say I feel like I've got to know him and when I delivered him today I actually felt quite sad letting him go! 
I would say he is my best face to date but I'm still learning and have a long way to go and now, well I'm ready for my next challenge....

I enjoyed doing the details on the shirt

The darts were pins wrapped in wool and felted.

A bit of 2D felting, so much quicker to do.

Ears ears and more ears

What is it about me and ears?
Felting ears that is... They end up either too big or too small but I think these ones will be just right for this fella.
