1. Headless Hare


Happily, this doesn't happen very often, but occasionally
I get halfway through a piece and realise that it is wrong to my original intention. As with this pre-ordered hare, Willow. Yesterday I realised that her arms were going to be too long for her body; cutting the arms down, as I did, didn't help. She needed more neck length. She was looking too tubby anyway - more like a rabbit than a hare. Only one thing to do...find the big scissors...
(If you are Janet of the Empty Nest, you might want to look away now...)


Cut off her head. It gives me a rare chance to look at cross section of one of my toys and see how densely it's been worked.



So the neck extending begins.





Once the wool is taking shape, I can hold the head on with a spare felting needle so that I can work on her more easily, in my hands.
