During my one hour lunch break, I'm pretty much able to get the bare bones of a creature in place. The detail work takes much longer, but the general shape can be pulled together in about an hour. This is a huge step forward for me. I've broken three of my tiny felting needles now, and have more on the way from an etsy seller in Canada. I sort of feel naked without them...*CRY*
I have always loved Barn Owls. They have a particularly ghostly beauty and presence about them. I saw one once in a tree in the middle of the city and was saddened that it was so out of place. I hope someday to live somewhere near owls. I'm hoping to finish this little guy today.
Tomorrow I'll finish my photographs and should be opening my shop on Monday. I'm really nervous and excited. I have so many beautiful little friends to share with the world and so many more in my imagination to make.
