My mom had, for some holiday I think, bought me a really beautiful fibers for needle felting from Halcyon Yarn. (Which, by the way, just happens to be in my home town. Jealous?

But I kept stabbing away and in the end I got this little, loosey goosey, funny looking version of Goldie.
I just found her today and I honestly have no idea how she has stayed in tact as long as she has. I was sure that her little arms would have been long gone by now at least.
For the record, here is the real Goldie:
