Hi felters-
 I've just been amazed and wowed by the most awesome and inspiring package from my mum ever! She came to visit in April and I taught her a quick basic lesson in needle felting. As the mega-craft queen herself- she became quickly addicted. Grin  I haven't had a chance to see any of her big creations since we were together this past spring, so I am absolutely floored and SO PROUD of my Mums quick learning, and amazing creative penache.
These are some of the things she's sent to me to add to or collaborate with. fun!  Grin
Flowers  Grin !!!


'Jungle Bird'


'Marbled Buddha'


'Navajo Girl'


and the BEST present to me EVER- a funky frog in a thong!!  Grin Grin Cheesy Cheesy
 
I have to come up with a good name for her. any ideas???

Thanks for looking- my Mum isn't online but I hope you love them as much as I do.. <3<3<3<3  Wink

That frog wearing a thong made my day-- thank your Mum for such a good laugh!  And it definitely deserves a name-- something swanky!  Cheesy 

The Navajo girl is absolutely precious-- next to the thong wearing frog, she is definitely my favorite.  All of your Mum's pieces are fabulous though-- she is incredibly talented!

Like mother, like daughter.  Wow, the two of you are awesome.  Your mother's work is so wonderful and so many variations - such creative minds and hands and eyes that complete the idea.  HurraH for Lexis and Lexis Mom!

thanks-  Cheesy The two best traits i think i picked up from my mama- is a great aesthetic eye, and a GREAT black humour!   Grin We make good pals.
snacker- you've said it.. both my parents were artists, so I guess something can be said about genetics. I cant deny my attraction to pretty things. lol..
