Birds on a Wire

Yesterday afternoon I arrived home to a very special package in the mailbox. Michelle Palmer, who is one of my favorite artists and people on the planet sent me three (!) original drawings on cloth. I'm so overwhelmed by her kindness and the beauty of these pieces that I'm speechless. Please go read her blog and see all of her amazing work. My favorite detail is below: a beautiful pigeon.

And to Michelle, who I know reads my little blog, thank you, thank you, thank you. This is an immense kindness and I had myself a good little cry about it because it meant so much to me. I hope that you love the giraffe as much as I love my drawings. I'm going to have them professionally framed!


  1. You're so very sweet! I'm so glad you love'em!

I think he's one of my favorite creations ever...and he's for sale in my shop!

On Wool and the Future of Woolnimals

I love animals. The greatest moments in my life involve animals. In fact, there isn’t a fond memory that I have that doesn’t somehow include animals or the natural world.
It’s not surprising that my hobbies and artistic pursuits have always involved the animal world as well. Over time, my interests focused on needle felting and creating small friends that make me smile and bring joy to others. I’ve had my Woolnimals needle felting business for nearly a decade and it has been a huge source of happiness and relaxation for me.
Shortly before I left college, I changed my major from English to Eco-Psychology. I began studying the connections between humans and the natural world. My studies focused on the understanding that direct experiences with wilderness and the natural world foster compassion and a sense of place.
