Handful of Handfuls

As I mentioned earlier I was working on my first polar bear!

What do you think?

I've made this guy for a friend of mine, and he was copied from a photo of a real polar bear so they do actually lay like this sometimes! :o)


This little guy is felted from a lovely hand dyed mix of blues and violets. He actually has a top lip but it's a bit hard to see in the pics.

Minty is felted in a unique mint green, he's a basic little bear but still sweet.


Now here is a unique bear! Nothing quite like him has appeared in my work before.I do quite like him in his brick red and candyfloss hand dyes.


This bear is felted from merino in amazing blood red hues. He's darker in person.


He's just a lil sweetie, look at that face! Fabulous sea green wool.

And of course I am still working on more bears, I actually just finished something a little different and I'm halfway through a baby bear which is coming along nicely! So there will be more to show again soon.

I hope you have enjoyed these new creations. I had so much fun making them. I also want to take the time to thank you all for visiting my blog, I know some of you pop in regularly and that is just so sweet of you. Thank you all for your kind comments and your high praise, I really do appreciate it!

Much love and happy crafting to you all,

Another Day!

Hi all

Well, it's another day, end of another week for me, literally. It's almost midnight on Sunday, back to me and bubs at home tomorrow. Its' been a busy weekend, Fathers Day today. Bit hard making it special when you have to go to work, but I did my best.

I'm working on a polar bear at the moment, it's going pretty well, I'm pleased so far. I received so many gorgeous new wools this week. Just love those auctions, there are so many talented woll dyers in NZ, and I plan to buy from every single one of them! :o)

Well, todays bear is felted from a mix I did myself. The blue is called Blue Thunder, and the white is a soy fibre I wanted to try out. Really pleased with it, just enough sheen to it, and they blended well.

Meet Stormy!!

He has sparkly thread for his nose that matches his bow!

I'm already working on another blend called Tamarillo which is just gorgeous. Actually finding myself wanting to work with merino and similar fibres, much to my dismay! hehe

Hope you like little Stormy!!
