Does it ever happens to you that something you are crafting sort of... comes alive? No? Umm... Me either! No!
Just this... once...



" 'ello!"
Eh, don't push your muzzle right at camera, you got to go take few steps back...



"Is it better? Can they see mee now?"
Yeah, that's better. Now you just hold still...



"Yayy! Catch me if you can!"



"Isit me you drawing there? My neck doesn't look like that."
Oh my...



"What's this you're putting in your...?"
Tea? That's honey.
"Can I have it? Can I?"
No.



"Pleeeease..."
Don't give me that look! Uh. Ok.



"Njam. Nice! More?"
Not now. No.



"What's this?"
Well, I thought you might get cold out there. So I'm making you a blanket.



How do you like it?
"Does this colour make me look fat?"
No, you are just lovely.
"Yeah! I know!"



"This is your work table? It's a bit messy."
I know...
"Is it because this you work on dining table?"
Um. Yeah.
"I can help u clean this you know."
NO! No. Thanks anyway.



"And that's my blanky in there?"
Yeah. Watch your fringe!



"Is it ready yet?"
Just few more things..



There. Now you're good to go.
"Yayy! England, here I come!"
Be nice to post office folk.
" 'kay."
And don't cause rumpus on a plane.
" 'kay."
And keep your blanket on, it's going to be cold.
" 'kay."

"Are we there yet?"

So this little fellow went to my Unicorn Swap partner. Good luck to her with this girlie (and keep your honey jar behind locks)...
So, technical details: She is needle felted from super soft merino wool (She got hugs from everyone in our household because of that). She has wire armature that's covered with thin layer of foam. Hooves are round wood sawn slightly diagonally and glued to wire. I broke 14 felting needles doing this, seriously.

Yeah, me too! This thing sort of came to be by all by herself, I only bought the wool and there she was Cheesy I'd like to call her my first unicorn so there might be others coming too..

She told me about how she heard stories about humans and wanted to come and learn more about them. I asked her name but obviously unicorns don't have ones because they have no need for them, I found out that she was referred to as "mischievous one" though. When I told her about names and how we use them she graciously allowed me to give her one. She wanted me to name her after something I love so I would always smile when I say her name. I called her Sunday Brunch for a while, but she got bit upset when she found out about bacon... Therefor I told Maimy (my swap partner) to give her new name when she arrives.

She also liked to be chased by my terrier and napping with cats. She is a bit touchy for remarks about size of her ears and likes being brushed and knock-knock jokes (I doubt she completely understands them though, I think she just likes making that knocking sound). I think she is so small because she is one of those breeds used by fairies. Maimy also told me that she likes heraldian unicorns, so my unicorn's breed is Fairybred Heraldian.

I can't help it! These things are just coming to me all by themselves!  Grin

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE HER! What a character. I've let her try pancakes with honey, and toasted waffles with honey - now she wants to try it with everything (pizza with honey anyone?!). I woke up the other day to find her on my bedside drawers, gazing towards the window, and since the rain had stopped for once I thought I'd show her the garden -- I think she stopped to sniff every flower!  Roll Eyes And she had fun playing with Lola (the dog) and Dinah (one of the cats), as they decided to join us.

And she's been with me at my craft table ... apparently, mine is just as messy as yours, she wonders if all crafters are the same  Wink

P.S.... I have been calling her "Brunch" while I think of a name for her, I don't think she finds it very funny  Tongue I might call her Ommella, which is "to sew" in Finnish, is that right? Sewing makes me happy ... and I thought it would be a nice reminder of where she came from Smiley What do you think?

Hahah! So she continues blabbering to you too? I'm glad I'm not the only one. Cheesy Thank you for pictures, is great to see she's happy in her new home! I could so hear her demanding pizza with honey... Grin I think Ommella is a great name for her (or maybe "Ompeleminen" which is noun as in "sewing", but perhaps a bit too long that one...) and I'm really flattered about your idea her having a Finnish name. Kiss

It still amazes me how popular she became! Featured even! But I can hear her voice in my ears saying: "Well, of course they love me! Why wouldn't they?" I thinks she means to say "Thank you!" by that...
