Lin's been working on this seagull, commissioned as a Christmas present for a Brighton and Hove Albion fan - nearly 4" from beak to wing tips. He's been elegantly parcelled up, christened 'Drew C. Gull' (client's called Andrew), and will be mailed tomorrow. She must have been working on him for over a week. She works by needlefelting white, grey and black merino wool roving, adding blue striped towelling from a beach robe, making the bird's beak and legs from a pipe cleaner, all sewn together with a teddy (needlefelt), a Christmas tree (cake decoration) and a candy cane (Fimo) into his sack of gifts. Few things are made here. I'm delighted by her handiwork - for example this family of teddy bears sent as Christmas presents to the Greek side of the family last Christmas.
