I finished a zebra today. This is my second needle felted zebra and at the moment I am thinking my last. I spent several days working on him and in the end the stripes about drove me crazy. I am very happy with the end results though. Now I will enjoy him on the shelf of honor until someone decides they love him as much as I do. You can see my last zebra here.

Baby Kitties were born today. One of the many wonderful perks of growing up on a farm!
Yesterday we experienced a spring blizzard here in North Dakota. We had about 8 inches of new snow. We were lucky as some just West of received up to 23 inches. It is melting today, but I am told we are to expect more snow on Wednesday. We had one new baby during the blizzard, she has a great mommy and was well cared for. The rest of the sheep have been hanging out in the barn with occasional trips out to the bale to eat.
A few pictures of my adorable lambs.
Another cold day for lambing, but Girbius and Griffle are doing fine. They are taking the cold well.
It seems the White Witch of Narnia has cast a spell on North Dakota. Always Winter and Never Christmas! I spent the last few chilly days working on these projects . . .
The Bear Creek Bunnies have always been girls. I started making the girl Bear Creek Bunnies after a particularly long winter. I was looking for a way to be able to felt with some fun spring colors and that is how I came up with bunnies wearing dresses. I have been asked over the years to make boy bunnies but I just never felt quite inspired to do so. A couple weeks ago I had someone describe in detail the boy bunny she was wishing for. She described it so well that I totally pictured his cuteness in my mind and couldn’t wait to make him. He was for sale for a short time in my Etsy shop, until the wonderful lady that dreamed him up found out about him and didn’t waist any time in purchasing him.
