Wee giftie: the big big (tiny) ocean

A few weeks ago, I asked Silas what we should make for Papa (my dad) for his birthday. Silas said we should make him a big big ocean. Since an ocean is a little difficult to package and ship 2000 miles, I made a tiny felted ocean scene instead. It's maybe 4 by 3 inches at most. My father said they will hang it on their tree.

I am becoming increasingly familiar with sea creatures and needle felting techniques. Papa's tiny ocean was just a warm up to the big December project I'm in the middle of. I will take some pictures and talk more about this project as soon as I can...

Below, Silas helps get the tiny ocean ready to send to Wisconsin, along with a dishcloth. My parents use the other dishcloth I sent to them and requested more. This one is Diamonds in Your Dishrag, by S.M. Kahn.
Much more knitting/felting to do for the Holidays...
