Hedgehog classes

We have had a couple of hedgehog classes and have one more in the middle of September but here are the hedgehogs that have been made so far.

Aren’t they cute?


A busy couple of months

I would like to apologise for my lack of blogging for the last couple of months. I have been so busy with classes and making bears for Hugglets  that I have not had time to keep on top of my blog. I did however take photos of all the lovely bears that were made at my classes so here they are and they are definitely worth waiting for.  Again, I am so pleased with how they all turned out. Everyone should be so proud of themselves. Well done everyone.


The latest bear making class

We had a very relaxed bear making class this week. Everyone except one had made a bear before on my earlier classes so the pace was good. Everyone had finished by the end of the class even with a very long lunch break. Maureen made us all laugh as Ted (her husband) what a good name!!! had marked in her diary that a new bear was to be born that day. Maureen texted to let him know when “the head was out” Yes!!! she is THAT mad but then so were the rest of us. The Thing About Bears is…… they make you smile and act daft. They seem to speak to you and give you that look that makes you start chattering away to them. But enough of this soppy talk. You must want to see the latest bears. Here they are…..

I’m sure they would love to see your comments…..

Another busy needle felting class

We have had another lovely felting class with lots of chatter and many beautiful creations being made. The classroom was absolutely full again with all 12 seats taken, meaning no seat for me (not that I would have time to sit down anyway)


It was great fun and everyone is now an expert as far as I’m concerned so it’s time for a new challenge.George needle felted character doll

The bigger projects! I’m not sure if I ever blogged about George but he was my first needle felted character doll that

I made using an online workshop by Kay Petal of Felt Alive. She is one clever lady.

I know some of my ladies are itching to start their bigger projects so I am hoping to teach a few new techniques to help them get started. There is talk of needle felted ET, Dobby from Harry Potter, Minnie Mouse, Rosie and Jim and even Betty Boop. All sounds very interesting and I can’t wait to get started. Now that Anita has got all the supplies into Swanstitch for us we are raring to go. So watch this space and when the photos start appearing, please leave comments and let us know what you think.

Bear Making Class

We have just had another very successful bear making class. Everyone was using the same mohair as Pickle shown on a previous post. After lots of singing along to my playlist on my ipod and general chatter plus a few short silences where deep concentration was needed, five very beautiful bears were born. But don’t take my word for it…….. have a look for yourself below.


Latest needlefelting

I haven’t blogged for a little while so I thought I would share a few pics of the needle felting everyone has been doing on my Thursday evening classes. We have had such a wide variety of felting and they have all been fantastic. Here are a few of the wonderful creations.
