The New Adventures of Hummley The Felted Rufous Hummingbird

I finally am beginning to feel that I am managing to finish some of the projects that were on my must do list this past weekend. Hummley is the newest nestling in the family. This Rufous fellow is needle felted with a gilded gorget & polymer clay formed feet and beak. I perched him on a small madrona branch (a fabulous local wood that is, by itself, a magical thing) that I add some silk flowers to. The base is also made of polymer clay and says, Wish, Dream & Imagine. I was so happy to have finished him this week - since it is, historically the week that the Rufous hummingbirds return to our feeders. I got an order for an Eplet too this week. I will soon be starting to add Blue Birds to the nest as well.

ooh, hello - you're the nice hummingbird lady! (puts two and two together)

Thank you so much for visiting me; the tags I make myself, using Quark Xpress (a graphics/typesetting programme) and setting the type to the dimensions of a jumbo punch I've got, (the kind scrap bookers use) It was a bit of a chore to get the curved text right...and then I just make a hole for the thread with a big needle. All entirely homemade I am afraid!

Well isn't he the gosh darn sweetest thing you ever did see. I have a love for hummingbirds. In fact, something of a coincidence, I posted a hummingbird on my blog today too.
