The Lavender Festival is coming to town

The annual Lavender Festival is coming to town.... well, almost. It is being held in Newport, WA. this year, which is only 5 miles from here. I am going to set up a booth there so I am busy making lots of new things. I am making clay sculptures, jewelry, felted animals, cat and doggie toys and treats..... well, like I said, lots of things.

Needle Felt Hummingbirds

I just love hummingbirds and soon they will be coming to the feeder that I have put out for them. I enjoy creating needle felt animals and Twisted Whiskers "Critters." It is so amazing to watch a creation come together simply by poking wool roving here and there with a special felting needle. It does take a lot of time, blood, sweat and tears. I still can not complete one without managing to wound myself in action... and poke myself!

Spring has Sprung in Idaho

I believe spring has finally arrived here in No. Idaho. It hasn't snowed in almost 3 weeks now. Of course it still gets down to freezing at night but the days are getting warmer. Soon it will be time for the Lavender Festival and I am looking forward to that.

I have been busy creating lots of new things for the Twisted Whiskers store. My latest creations are needle felt hummingbirds and polymer clay sculptures. If you are interesting in buying any of these you can click on the link on the right.

As always, thanks for your interest in my LV's Twisted Whiskers Creations.
