Sea Monsters and Ships


Hels and I are enjoying this new needle felting/tapestry gig. It is the end of Hels's block on "Age of Exploration" and her head is just filled with ships, sea monsters, scurvy, unexplored lands, and conquistadors. I think the sea monster looks a bit happier than the early explorers might have envisioned!

Another cool tapestry! You are inspiring me to get out my needlefelting supplies, lady. :)

Of course he is happy, he is about to devour the ship! We are busy felting pumpkins for the nature table, but we all have the "crud" so we are mostly lying on our backs between going out and taking care of the animals. Can we have one day off?

I neglected to mention that this was made while Hels was home from school with the "crud."

That is so cute! Your last post about the needle felted tapestry inspired my daughter and I and she's been making some of her own. She'll love this sea monster one.

I love needle felting! Haven't tried a tapestry yet but you and Hels have inspired me to do so:-)

Wonderful. My boys are into sea creatures...like "Nessie" right now. Love it.

I think he's thinking to himself, "Hmmm...that ship needs a figurehead, and I'm the scourge of the deeps to do it!"

Cute! I love the sea monster's head - and the eye! The waves are great - the two blues are perfect.

Your last two posts have inspired me to try needle felting. We have been looking for a fall handicraft, and this might just be it. Thanks for sharing your lovely work.
