Wheelie Wednesday - A Pressie For Me

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!Mom is still knitting mini-stockings. This one just needs to have the knitted hanger made and it will be all set to hang on the tree! She didn't like the way the last one hung when she was all finished with it so she knitted the top shut! Gee, how will Santa Claus ever fill it with goodies? Doesn't this defeat the purpose?!Mom told me that she needed a break from the stockings and that she wanted to make me a special gift! Oh goody - who doesn't love pressies made just for them?!

She got out her basket of wool roving with all of her basic browns and blacks and whites and grays.

And she got out her orange sponge and her needlefelting needles, which just happen to be VERY, VERY sharp and must be kept away from all nosey furbutts - yes, I think she means you, Maggie and Mitch!
And then she started poke, poke, poking like crazy at this round brown thing!

This is supposed to be a pressie for me? What could it possibly be? Can anyone help me out with an idea? I haven't a clue! Do you?

Hopefully mom will be finished this special pressie by next Wednesday so I can show you all what she made me!

See you all next week!

A very confused, Autumn

Ooooooo! We can't wait to see what it is! Tell your mom not to jab her fingers...those needles are hazardous to your health! We'll be watching next Wednesday to see what you get, Autumn! BTW, that wool roving looks suspiciously like Aire-hair!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Autumn!

Is she making you a big coaster so you can sit on it and not get any "liquid" on the furniture? Or, maybe it's a donut sled and you'll be able to zoom down the hills in the neighborhood after it snows. Other than that, I have NO idea!

Goober love,
Stanley

We are intrigued. H-Mom and Man-dad met a gorgeous 3 year old Airdale by the beach, her name was Olivia. We wish we would have had Madison with - they would have looked great in a photo together.

Hmmm... Not sure what it is but I'll bet you'll like it!

One household member here is into needle felting and we're saving Penny's hair until we figure out how to use it. When I saw that first picture, I thought, like Penny Poppy and Patches, that it was Airedale hair!

We got excited because we thought your mum might have figured out how to use dog hair.

Please tell your human family that we are grateful for the support they have given us over the time of the awful bushfires here.
