Needle Felted Delights

I hope you all had a good Easter (and ate plenty chocolate!) I have not had much time to blog lately, I am still busy going through my things and listing some bits on ebay. I have been doing well on my mission to save money.
     Don't get me wrong, I haven't been a total angel. There have been a few temptations that I have given into...
       One of these purchases was from one of my favourite Etsy shops, Miss Bumbles. I have quite a few of her wonderful creations and this time I asked for a custom order. 
     I wanted a little version of my cat Ruby. She loves Maltesers, they are one of her favourite things in the world. No she doesn't eat them, I will explain all in another post. I wanted her to be juggling Maltesers. She is also wearing a Malteser themed dress, red the colour of the packet, brown polka dots to represent the sweets themselves and a white ribbon around her waist to represent the colour of the font on the packet.
       The finished result was even better than I had imagined and when the pictures came through I was so excited.

Pictures belong to Miss Bumbles. You can find her Etsy shop here.

     I loved the little touches that Miss Bumbles added to the piece, the little collar. But especially the little tongue sticking out, I thought that was genius. It captures Ruby's cheeky personality completely.
     I was also tempted by another piece in the form of this cute little nanny goat kid. And she made the journey to my house along with the little Ruby Replica.

        Not only do you get gorgeous items from this shop, the service is great too. The lady behind the shop is really nice and helpful. She was very patient and answered all of my questions throughout the custom order process.
     To anyone who has been thinking of buying from this shop, I can't recommend it highly enough. I am already thinking about another custom order.
