Felted Birds

You've heard me sing the praises of the UK Edition of Country Living Magazine before. It's such a wonderful magazine that celebrates British country life with features on craftspeople and artists, recipes, farming, decor, fashion, and home; All things from the lovely rural areas of the United Kingdom. In the March 2013 magazine there is an article (being the bird lover that I am), I just had to share with you.

Eve O'Neill is a transplanted Londoner who now resides in Wales. An artist all her life, after her move, her love of nature and all things "small" were channeled into the creations you see here. Fforestfelt is the result of her amazing lifelike felted wool sculptures of birds and small animals from the Welsh countryside.

Eve gathers her inspiration close to home, as she sketches her tiny muse.

Eve also uses local wools and materials.
Here she is creating a tiny wren which usually takes a full day to complete.

A nest with hatchlings accompanies this little mama.

 You'll want to visit her Blog and Website to see more of her amazing creations.

I think this issue is still available at bookstores,
 but you'll want to see her lifelike creations for yourself
in her gallery on the website, where not only birds, but rabbits and foxes, 
and display cases are filled with tiny woodland creatures.

Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.
