I took some time off from working on my book the last couple of days so I could make my mom’s birthday present. Today is her birthday (Happy birthday mom!) so she has it now and I can post about it! She collects chickens, roosters mostly, so I had planned to make her a needle felted rooster for Christmas. I ran out of time then, of course, that’s always how it goes, so I decided I’d make it for her birthday. I am extremely happy with how it came out, it’s quite a bit different than my original picture in my head, in a good way, and also a lot better than I thought it was going to turn out for about the first 3/4 of when I was working on it. Usually I can see how it’s all going to come together in the end even if it looks really weird to begin with, but not so much with this guy. Glad I kept working though, cause he’s a handsome looking rooster.

Sorry about the picture quality, I almost forgot to take pictures so I took them at high speed as I was running out the door to meet my mom and give it to her.


I found a new setting for the photo galleries, I really like this one. Hover your mouse over the picture to get the caption, and for the long captions if you click on the image it will bring it up bigger and you can see the full caption. It’s so pretty!
