"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

Trick Or Treat?

They say be careful what you wish for. So, when the goatmother started this whole needle felting thing, and I offhandedly remarked that I was holding out for a fuzzy rendition of myself...well...I really didn't believe I had anything to worry about. After all I never got that crocheted coat. But, of course, as things go, and when Murphy is thrown into the mix, not to mention the absolute spookiest time of the year, well, really scary things can happen.

Meet the dread MiniMe, ace, all-around clone and number one tiny Peanut pirate.

Eeeeeeek! And Oy. There simply has to be some mistake. This is absolutely not what I had in mind.

The left ...

The right...

Even the bum! Scaaarry, I tell you.


So, my friends, be very careful what you wish for this Halloween ...
... because you just might get it! Or worse, something entirely beyond the imagination.

"You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into" ... the Oylight Zone.

BOO!

Rose's Goats said...

Oh Marigold! It is the cutest thing ever! You should be happy that goat mother feels so obliged to make your likeness into felt. Very cute!

Lisa T. said...

I like the waddles the best. Just think how easy she will be to milk and trim hooves. Ahhh, the dream goat. Ooops, sorry...

Smiles,
Lisa

Peggy said...

it looks so real! How do you do that

Marigold said...

To Dawn - ...maybe
To Rose's Goats - ...I am cuter than 'it'.
To Lisa T. - Thanks for giving her ideas.
To Peggy - It has to be a product of the Oylight Zone. It just has to.

Maybe the goatmother will make felted peanuts.

goatgirl said...

Oh my. That has to be the cutest thing goatgirl has ever seen. What a talented goatmother. I'm with Lisa on the waddles.

Marigold said...

To Turbo - We can only hope. If it eats those, my stash is safe.
To Goatgirl - I repeat. *I* am MUCH cuter than that thing.

goatfarmer said...

I just WISH I could get one of those things. I FELT like I needed one as soon as I saw it. oh MY.

Kathy in KY said...

Love the BUM shot! Where are the felted "goat berries!?" LOL

Marigold said...

Dear goatfarmer - One never knows what could happen in the future. *I* FELT it immediately.
Dear Kathy - Oy. A lady, such as myself, would never mention the unmentionable, let alone have any feltings for such a thing. :)

Queen Quattra said...

Marigold...Not to steal anyone's pun but I "felt" I must agree with you...being goats and all..."butt" you have to admit...there is some resemblance here. Sadly, your goatmother has inspired my goatmother, Chris to find one of those needle, felty classes and make one of those things in my image too! OY, is right!!

Marigold said...

Dear Queen - The goatmother says 'GO FOR IT, CHRIS! It is SO much fun!'. But you and I both know the goatmother suffers from delusions...

Texan said...

I love alllllll your needle felting.. I really want to learn how to do this!

Your pieces are wonderful :O)

Marigold said...

Dear Texan - I think you should. I think Texans can learn to do this too. :)

Andrea said...
