Christmas markets and more needle felting.

It was a very busy full weekend for me. I went to the Bizarre Christmas Bazaar  Saturday from 10-6. Long day there. But it was so fun. We had live music, good food and really nice people. I had fun.

Then Sunday, from 1-7 was the Christmas in the Cove market. In an old barn. The county bought this farm and now there is a restaurant and the barn is used for weddings and events. It's a beautiful barn. I had a good time again there.  

And I actually sold some of my felted sheep! People like the white ones. And a little girl bought Annabelle and Buttercup. She loved them. There were a few other kids that wanted white sheep too. SO I am making more for the Wed. Main St. market.

 Here are the ones I've made so far. To the far right is the pig. And a snowman. Then a white sheep and the darker sheep. And I made a rainbow unicorn. I love this one. I'll have to make more. But it took about 2 hours to make. And I'll have to get more of the colored roving from All Books. I do believe I am hooked on needle felting

                    And here are the Suffolk ewe and lamb. I'll make more of these for Wednesday.

                                               The rainbow unicorn. What do you think?

                                               The old barn at Mt. Cove Farm. It's so pretty.

 The inside was decorated so pretty and Christmasy. But it was freezing! And there was some snow on the mountain. Cold all day. But we had a fantastic turnout, both days here. I will definitely go again next year.

                                          I hope you all had a great weekend. And a good week.

Thank thank you for more pictures of your felted critters!! They are wonderful! My 5 year old grand daughter would love them. Especially the rainbow unicorn.

I didn't know you were doing this, Kris. You might have told me, and I didn't understand. They are all cute! Audrey would love the unicorn!

Thank you all. I'll make a few more of the unicorns. And I want to make a donkey too. I need more colors. I stopped at All Books this evening but she was closed. She has all colors of roving to make beautiful rainbow unicorns. I'll go back Wed. before the market.

Those are so cute! I love the Suffolk sheep. Can I ask how much you get for them? I thought about taking up needle felting many years ago. I got some books from our library, never got the needles and then forgot about it. I do crochet and felt though. I need to put some handbags I made for sale on my blog.

Kimberly, since I was just learning to needle felt, I sold the ewe and lamb pairs for $5. But I think I might go to $10. Or $5 each. And the unicorn might be about $18-20, not sure. It took the longest, a little over 2 hours. That's what I'm doing today and tomorrow morning. You should do some. It's addictive. But very tedious. I looked up you tube videos and pictures of needle felting and there are some really intricate pieces out there.
