He's lovely - just like Hartley Hare (remember him?)   :)
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I remember the name, Acorn, but I don't really remember the character. Either too young for me or too old for my daughter perhaps.

Mid 70's to early 80's I think.  I've just been looking for pictures of him, and your hare is much, much cuter than him!  I don't remember him looking anything like as scruffy and disreputable!!

We have needle felting machines at work, I had a go at one last week in preparation for a workshop. Great fun, they are more for manipulating fabric though. I have this lovely piece of grey wool melton that cries out for some sort of paytern felted on....

Nope, I got it, @Iminei  from my daughter in law. She's an amazing craftspersonand. She went to a needle felting workshop at the stitching show in Harrogate and I admired what she'd made. She bought me the kit and told me to try it.
I have just sent for a load of wool, eyes and 2 books... I'm going to make teddy bears ( about 5" tall ) and animals....I hope. It's something to do when I can't be bothered get to the sewing room, I can do it on my lap on the settee.
