Finished by Friday and smile!

 
Good morning all - a snowy blizzardy day here but OK as I am inside looking out!!
Just a couple of things to share today.
Above is the  needle felted picture that I made on fun day Monday.
It is hand "dumfed" and then embellished with hand embroidery and beads.
It has a sort of Monet feel to it, I think.

 This little woolly heart is made with re-cycled wool and a Molly Makes "vintage" button. I added a few hand stitches and french knots.

I am putting it on the Valentine shelf in our Sisters Crafty Creations blog shop.
AND lastly - I am linking this post to Annie's Friday Smile.
Follow this link if you want to join in!

I thought my little woolly owl, enjoying a bit of fresh air in his snowy fir tree, might raise a smile this morning.
I won't tell you what my hubby said as I dashed out in a blizzard to take a pic!!!

Have a great day and a fun - if snowy - weekend!!

x Jo

I hope you dried the owl's feather off when he came in. Our dogs have got snowballs all over them from playing in the snow. They make me smile too. xx Maggie #2

Love the picture, it has such mistfulness about it (not sure its a word but it seems to say what I mean)!! I'm smiling over the wintry dash outside to put a cute little owl in a tree... you nutter!! Annette

Beautiful picture (and I love the frame) Jo. But honestly - my smile came from your rushing out into the snow with that darling little owl :)) The things we crafters will do!

Hugs, Di xx

You are as mad as me... but I went out to distribute the crusts (buttered and dipped in seeds) to the birds!!
Love your pic and the heart too.
Love Jo x

hahah probably the same thing mine says when I am out there on my knees taking pics of the bears and dolls in the deep snow and freezing temperatures... ....
We've been having a Chinook with blustery days and Pllus temperatures and I'm off out to take a pic of the funny shrunken tops of my marshmallow plant pots this morning....

your little colourful owl is very cute.... and definitely worth a smile...

Lovely dumfing picture - love the soft shades and, yes, it does look Monetish. The woolly heart is gorgeous too, but the owl is adorable and certainly made me smile, especially when I read that you ran out into the snow to take the pic :)) Elizabeth xx
