Got a good photo of Benny The Bear earlier. Picture of a ginger and white cat with his head cocked and looking down

Lovely walk yesterday along Ynyslas Beach. Photos show sand and sea and the view across the estuary to Aberdyfi.

Time to share some of my work I think. I make all kinds of needle felt and sculpture. From simple flowers to large rainbow roosters. Below 1. Rose bud broaches. 2. Needle cushion in a teacup. 3. 2D picture (an interpretation of the valley I live in) 3. Miniature duck wearing wellies (no one sane attempts duck feet that small using fluff!)

A few things blooming in the garden. The Peach rose was planted in memory of my beloved one eyed cat Peaches. The lilac is looking good this year. The Wisteria grows up a pollarded Silver Birch. Don’t know what the tiny bright blue flowers are but the colour is intense.

I only went down the to empty some compost. 1 hour later I was still sitting on the old bench. photos 1. close up of a bumble bee on my garden glove. 2. Henrietta the red . 3.Benny the ginger in a patch of daisies 4. The Gunnera plant growing.

Benny The Bear. Blissed out and showing off his floofs! Picture shows a large bellied ginger cat lying upside down complete with bunny paws.

Redo because I forgot to add the picture 😁 From this pile of wool (fluff) and wire a mighty dragon will emerge. Hopefully! I am doing a guided course with the fabulous Em from Stab the Fluff which starts on Saturday. My aim is to design my own dragon (a sea dragon seems appropriate) and create it over the coming weeks using both needle sculpting and wet felting techniques. *gulps*

Cat 5 ‘not my cat’. When we moved here nearly two and half years ago there was a sad bedraggled Tom cat living in the greenhouse. No one seems to know anything about him. He’s now fed by me and has a better bed. Great for controlling the rodents in the duck house! A tabby and white cat we call Dylan Thomas. He’s an outdoor and can’t be touched!

Regular visitor cat. So cat 4.5 if you like. Belongs to my daughter and comes with her when they visit. This is Poppi, adopted from Battersea by my other child who moved into a shared house with a dog. She’s a very dainty little tabby with very dark paws. She loves our sunroom and when she visits I am responsible for feeding and tray emptying (not sure how that happened! 🤣)

Cat number 4 was my daughter’s but didn’t settle when they moved to a flat. She likes to be upstairs! Raya is a three year old Tortie and white with a lovely ginger blaze on her head. She’s an absolute monkey!

Cat number 3. Katie Kitty Beanz or Beaniez. She’s another adopted cat but directly from previous owner who had to move. She’s about 17 years old and like all Torties she has lots of attitude! She likes to climb so here she is balancing on our weeping silver birch tree with a clear blue sky behind her.

This is Jaspurr. Another rescue. He is18 and we adopted him aged15. He was going to be put to sleep but vet refused and he was taken in by Cats protection.

Let me introduce my cats. First up is Benny The Bear. He’s a rescue, allegedly ‘feral’. He likes cuddles, food and sleeping in the sun. Very purry!

Hello! I am a fibre artist living near Aberystwyth. I am learning to speak Welsh (slowly!). I have cats, hens and ducks. I enjoy working on my mountainside garden.
