Druckfarben at the Mod Club

Canadian Prog Rock band Druckfarben played at the Virgin Mobile Mod Club Thursday night and performed their debut album, "Druckfarben" live. It was a great show and in spite of the mist in the air from the fog machines, I managed to get some half decent photos.

Needle Felted Chickadee

I discovered that making birds in wool felt is a lot more difficult than making mammals.
The feet are tricky and it's not easy to imitate feathers. I think I'll continue with mammals.
