Cy ~ Scrumbles and Needle-felting update

White Wrap Scrumbles & "Brock" Needle-felting

 The latest work on my needle felted Woodland character "Brock" has included a tunic change and a new hairstyle.
He is now 'Brock the Wayward Wannabe' and I can just imagine all the fun and mischievous tricks that he will be participating in.
He still needs more work in certain areas, but he's fun to work with and I keep dreaming up new characters to join him in his Woodland abode. 
Here he is now.






Progress on my White Wrap has been happening this week too.
Some scrumbles have been joined, and more scrumbles made to fit the gaps.
Not all joined together yet, but it's coming along nicely I think.





Gardening has taken up a fair amount of my time this week. 
It's Spring here in New Zealand, and everything is starting to bud and flower. 
The first lot of daffs have come and gone, the swallows have returned to the nest under the eaves on the deck (one egg so far), the rosella parakeets are busy chattering away to each other in the orchard, the ducks, pukeko's, plover's and pterodactyls (sorry, I mean herons)  are nesting around the woods and stream.
I love Spring.

I love Brock! He looks so natural in your photographic settings. As your scrumbles come together, I like how it looks. So many different textures and designs, this is going to be unique and beautiful.

Brock reminds me of back in the punk days with my son!

I think Brock looks best in his natural settings too.
Texture within the scrumbles is what I love about free form crochet.

I love Brock! Can't wait to see his family.

Yes, I was wondering whether to give Brock a couple of nose, lip, or ear piercings, lol. I might just settle for some black leather and chains though.

I'm sure they're playing hide and seek in the bush.

He's wearing a crocheted vest though, so he can only be a half-hearted wayward punk.

Are you sure Brock wasn't roaming around Seattle this weekend? Could have sworn we saw him walking down the street! He's very cool, Cy. And I can't wait to see his friends. Love you white wrap and the way you've added a touch of color; it's going to be fabulous!

Brock is wonderful, and I think he totally rocks the crocheted vest.

Brock may well have travelled magically to Seattle Judy. His Grandpa was once a trainee of the Mighty Wizard Huckenbough who had a spell for fast and invisable travelling.

Cyra said...

Thanks Barbara. His mother taught never to out without a vest.

Was Brock at DragonCon this weekend in Atlanta?
