It's been a long time coming, mainly because my dear daughter who makes the cute little Woollie ponies, has had too many other things happening in her life to get little Marble finished. Anyway, she's ready now and has just been listed at Ellie's Treasures.
Just like Icy and Raspberry (who I have to secretly admit is my favourite Woollie of all time), Marble comes nestled in tissue, inside a sturdy box, together with a hand-sewn booklet of "likes" - her favourtie things, two award winning rosettes and a small bag of shavings.
The wonderful Harvey Crafty Cards made the little buttons for the "likes" book - a mint, apple, carrot and heart full of love.
Marble is made from a pipecleaner and blue/grey and beige wool. She has a lovely deep grey mane and tail, black eyes and nostrils. With gentle care she can be posed.
Sadly not suitable to children because of all the buttons, pipecleaner, shavings and other small things, but Marble, Icy and Raspberry would make fabulous collector's items for anyone, but especially for horse and animal lovers.
