Hare Finished

I finished the needle felted hare I had started in my last post.  

I chose to put him a slightly more active pose than others who made one.  Most of my hares here, and there are many all over the place, are moon gazers so I thought I'd be different.  

Other than that I have been pottering in the garden when cool enough and not too much else creative.  I did have a day with West Country Embroiderers yesterday with guest Margaret Beal. 

The village hall was stifling and using hot soldering irons only added to it. I put together a little sample piece of some of her processes but concentration was lacking! The car which had been in the shade all day read 32 centegrade. 

I have a current pick up and go project, other than the continuous knitting, of some felt garland pieces.  The pattern is on Shiny Happy World.  It's small and simple and nice to do sitting the the shade of a tree.  

We had a lovely day, before it become silly hot, at West Wittering with some friends and the Pointer dogs.  

It was glorious and cool with the tide out.  All 16 dogs could run and run and run. 

And run a bit more.

There was plenty of snores going on afterwards.  

We have Remi staying with us for a while.  I think he enjoyed the trip home in the convertible. 

Also Chris arrived with his Rotti Polly for a visit so we had a family photo opportunity. They actually sat still for 10 seconds!

And finally our Robins fledged but I missed it.  I did see one go but it was all so quick.  However this little lady and her beau has been back again. 

We now have more Blackbirds in the studio nest. This was Sunday 18th June.

And this was this morning.  

Growing like weeds!  I'm quite pleased it's a shady part of the garden at least.  I count four this time.  

We have a house of men changing the boiler for the next couple of days and a few visits out and about.  I hope you can keep cool if you have the heatwave too. 


  1. The hare is quite extraordinary. And very different from your usual hares, really like him.

  2. Your hare is wonderful, so full of character. Not sure I could have coped with soldering irons in the heat.

  3. Your hare looks as though she is lolloping over fields. Delightful! Much cooler here than there, thank goodness; we are of course, at winter solstice here...chilly and dark. Maori celebrate it as Matariki.

  4. Your hare has personality plus, and those dogs look happy enjoying the water and beach.
