Well done!  I can't show my son, or he might expect me to create a wool portrait of his budgie... and I'm not sure I can do that well....

All the marking details look fantastic! As an experienced felter, I'd say you are an experienced felter too! So much fantastic work coming from you Smiley

Thanks everyone.  Felting is on hold until the weekend but I have a couple of projects simmering away in the back of my mind

All I know about felt is that it feels fuzzy and rhymes with belt, so, I'm no help on technique, but I think you did a very good job on your budgie.  The feathers, markings, and eyes/beak are all detailed well.
