    I love the kitty!

    Can you bend some fishing line into a 'V' shape and put some hot glue at the end?

    Im not very crafty but I like to see them done!

    Aww, but I like the kitty! I think it's adorable! I've got oodles of wool, but I don't felt it, I spin it. If you need some sheep's wool, a nice, relatively dye-able grey color, let me know. I very literally have bags of it, and I'm sure I don't need it all. I can send you some and fuel your felting ;) It's already carded and in roving form.

    (no but seriously. So much wool. I may have gone overboard in my wool buying.... haha.)

    Well, heck, I would love it! I can pay you for the shipping, and maybe a little more. I dont' use a ton of gray, but I will try to use more . I need to experiment with making horses. I think you have to use pipe cleaners inside the legs to give it stability.

    Here's a picture of it in comparison to my hand (since the alternate background was the couch. Which is also grey). Like I said, it can be dyed relatively well. Not as well as white, but using food coloring and vinegar (sets the color) you can get some really gorgeous darker colors if you've got a mind to.

    I quite literally have a garbage bag overflowing with this. So if you know anybody else who might want some (or anybody reading this - plenty to go around!) I can certainly ship it off. My closet is a mess of animal hair - but this sheep takes the cake! I only wanted a few ounces, but the guy said it was his last year selling and just take the whole bag. Soooo. Hehheh.

    Tiny, I can send some gorgeous brown sheep's wool your way too. It's not in roving form yet (I don't know if that matters for needle felting or not - if it does and you don't have carders I can card some). It's dark dark brown, almost black, with lighter caramel brown tips. I forgot what breed it's from. Took me a bajillion years to clean it all (sheeps wool is FILTHY) - but it's another horse like color, is it not? (sorry the picture of it is sucky)

    Send me a PM with an address - I've got to ship 2 saddles, too, so I'll be in and out of post offices all week.

    Boy that wool picture DOES suck. Here's a bit better one. (sorry, it's late and dark and I just got home from work. My picture taking skills are not at peak LOL)

    For spinning into yarn. The Shepherd's Harvest festival comes around once per year, and their pricing for raw wool is unbeatable. So I go a bit overboard every year, since I won't have another chance till next year. :)
