Penguin ornament... it's a start!

Having done minimal amounts of fiberart this year, I figured it was good to start up small with needle-felted ornaments.  Here's my 2015 Penguin.

Massachusetts State House

The Bolton Artisans Guild had the opportunity to display art at State Representative Kate Hogan's meeting room.  This was just the inspiration that I needed to get back to my felting.  I decided on making a wall hanging of the state house.

Started with 5 layers of wool...

Wet felted the layers...

 Needle felted the details...  voila!!

Finished size ~ 22" x 19"  

The art works will be on display from June through Sept.  My understanding that we can view the works when the meeting room is not being used.

Finally back at it...

I haven't posted since Dec, 2014, and worse yet, I haven't needle felted a 3D puppy in a few years.  My son's friend wanted a mini version of their new puppy Coal so that he could partake in their upcoming wedding festivities.

Working from a photo, I created my needled version of Coal.  Since he's a puppy, I exaggerated both his paws and his nose...  He's approximately 4" tall and 6" long.

Hope they like him..
