Sometimes you get to change the world, and other times the world changes you.

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?

The steps were almost too high... and the tulips were definitely too high!

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...

I repinned this, and squealed, and avidly read every single sentence you wrote! I've always loved needle-felting, but I've never seen it this masterfully done!

I love personal swaps!
