Please tell me that I’m not alone? Some creative ideas pop into my head and I have to a make them. There and then. No turning my back once the idea is there. This time it was a barn owl. What if I made a flying barn owl? Could I make the wings arch without them flopping? How could I do that?

But my owl did!

And the wings hold the shape perfectly.

So I’m happy.

Just need to find the best way to photograph needlefelt.
