A Little House in a Log

I have had such a lovely time, I've been playing with my wool and those sharp, little, barbed needles that turn it into felt. Imogen goes to a drama club on a Saturday afternoon, so after the usual Saturday chores were out the way (washing, shopping etc), I settled down to finish my felting project that I started yesterday.

Remember my little piece of fauna, the little posy vase, little log with the lamb and rabbit...




 ... I decided to start playing with it yesterday. I started with a little house with a red door. My house had a path that leads down to a small pond...




...the pond has 2 little ducks paddling on it




Sheep grazing, flowers, bushes, hedges and a tree with red apples on it.




When we travel across the M62, over the Pennines, we go past a farmhouse between the 2 halves of the motorway. I can't imagine what it's like to live there, even though it's surrounded by motorway traffic I think it's very isolated. Anyway, I sort of had the idea of that house in my mind when I made this one.





I'm very pleased with how it's turned out and have plans to make more. I hope you like my little cottage too.




I've never watched it before, but this year I have been completely pulled into watched Strictly Come Dancing. I've loved it, so I'm popping off to watch tonight's episode, to watch those marvellous dancers glide all over the floor... and the not so marvellous... but I envy them all floating and gliding in their beautiful outfits.

Take care

  1. Hello Cheryl - what a marvellous idea you've had for that little vase! It's so beautifully done - those little ducks are superb - all of it is! Really lovely, and so clever of you! As for the dancing - I've always fancied the Tango, myself, but my husband says I've no chance of getting him to do that.....!!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  6. I loved it, I know just the house you are talking about divided by the motorway. We travel that way when we go to Manchester airport.

  7. That's so cute, a whole little life in miniature. I'm always fascinated by that farm on the M62 when we pass. Hope you enjoyed Strictly, I wonder who will go tonight.

    ... I've always enjoyed Strictly, and last night's episode from Blackpool was excellent. Results show later this evening - who will get through I wonder?

  21. Love the felt scene! And the house in the motorway is one I always look at and think... why did they not move?
    Strictly is brilliant & one of my favourite spots of the week...

  24. I love your little felted project. It's so cute. I've seen animals and birds and flowers, but never an entire little setting. Very cute and creative! I have a friend looking for wool to felt. Can you share where you get yours?
