Name change and other fun stuff

Happy 2016. Can you really believe that in five days we will be into February. Where has the first month gone?
Did you notice the name change, I hope so as we are taking this blog in a new direction. My hope is to make this the place for simple art lessons. Whether in felting or whatever creative artistry I am up to today.
Late last year we changed our Etsy shops name from 'The Artsy Clutch' to "Blue Poppy Feltworks".
Changing your name would seem to be an easy process, it was in some ways but I forgot when you change it in one place it seems there are loads other that follow; so as of January 25, 2016 all those places are now changed. Yeah !!!

(I am  not a technical genius, or very computer savvy, I'd rather save my creativeness to my art. So, if like me your comp. skills are somewhat lacking rest assure your secret is safe .)

Getting back to art in general, I have a couple of fun hand needle felted pieces to show you. These were done late last year.
First up are a herd of Elephant Brooches. These have been making a hit on the Etsy site. Keeping new ones coming is always a fun task.

Big Pile of Assorted brooches

The second pictures is a few other brooches we have created . Elephants not your thing,  We have loads of others.....hearts, zombies, trees, birds, pumpkins or just fun abstract ones. 

This next piece is a blank slate so to speak as it has not spoken to me on what it will become as of yet. Possibly a messenger like cross body tote for a potential client. We will see where it goes.

22"x 11" Bohemian Rhapsody

This small piece was done about a week ago, my first landscape with a horse. 

Here is a preview of a new piece I am working on today, it will be a large ( 20" x 20") 2D tulip pillow when complete. I am hand needle felting it onto a black wool base. Just about ready for some creative stitching as we add the petals on to it. I'll post again as soon as its finished.

A couple of cuff bracelets.

 This last piece for today was actually turned into a clutch called Neptune's Gold. Look for it on my Etsy site.
