COLOURS Exhibition, Estuary Arts, Orewa (NZ)

I've got some pieces in an exhibition called 'COLOURS' at Estaury Arts Center in Orewa (North of Auckland, NZ) during March. This Squid is one of them - I like him alot as he was fun to make and has felt (tentacles and necklace/cord)!

I need to work on my names for things though as the most creative title I could come up with for him was 'Felted Squid' ....or something similarly boring.

Gosh - my two little kiddies are off tomorrow for 3 nights holiday with their dad to the Coromandel. I'm going to miss them SO very much, but have lots of things waiting to be created in my head. Plus I get to have a lie-in in the mornings (can't remember the time that last happened - and no nappy changing!).

I'm also finally getting around to doing a one-on-one 3 hour lampwork class - which I won in the Beadhold Wirework challenge last year. Its with Lisa-Jane Harvey at Born To Bead Studio in Auckland. Can't wait - although I know I'm then going to go off on another tangent wanting to make glass beads/critters....

Maybe I could then felt them....?

Thank you Pam! Your fantastic work is what inspired me to have a go at felting - so thank you for that.
