Something Different!

Hi Everyone!

Well I had an attack of the 'make something interestings' and came up with this little lady! Suzy is an anime bear with auburn hair and big blue eyes. I had fun making her eyelids, haven't done many of those before and it's been a while since I 'dressed' a bear too. Then she had to have a friend, so along came Suzette her little sheep.

I love Suzette, she is firmly felted in black and white and then I did a soft coat of merino over the top which is squishy and wooly looking.

What do you think? Are they a cute pair?

In Dinah's Room

Hi all

I do believe I already told you I was working on some fab new ideas. Here is the first of them. I have been doing little room boxes, I have a number of boxes that are just awaiting their perfect beary counterparts.

Dinah turned out perfectly for this roombox. She is the perfect size, the colours work well and she has the sweetest little face.

Her room is fully wallpapered, it has a window and mirror and carpet. She has a lovely bed with hand stitched counterpane and pillows to match. Her handmade toy box is filled with lovely bits and pieces, from her boxed Barbie to her pipecleaner bear. She also has a dolls house and a book of paper dolls.

Just look at that face!
She is a little messy, her paper dolls and books are on the floor.

Dinah loves to show her guest around her room. Thank you so much for popping by to meet her, you are welcome back any time!

Happy Easter!

Hi all!

Happy Easter to everyone! I hope you have a lovely time with family and friends. We intend to relax and do as little as possible. It's been a long few months since the last long weekend and my husband and I have not seen much of each other. It will be nice to catch up again and spend time with the kiddles.

Of course there is all the chocolate too, let us not forget that! Mmmmmmmmm As if I could! :o)

Speaking of Easter, here is my latest bunny. Her name is Tinka and she is felted in a gorgeous hand dye of rainbow colours. I decided to pick out the yellow for her accenting. Really pleased with her!

Next we have HeartLove. This little bear didn't photograph very well. Must have been the time of day. She is actually a candyfloss pink and a nice mauvey purple. She is named HeartLove as that is what my babies have always called love hearts, so cute. She has white pearl hearts on her belly and feet.

Toots is a wee fellow felted in Toffee and Butterscotch wools. He's just a little guy, short and sweet! lol

Perry is one of my new favs. I wanted to make something really nice and for once it worked out. Perry is felted in the gorgeous Ashfords Merino and Silk sliver. A lovely grape shade and I stitched his nose etc in a thread which faded from purple to white and back. :o) He has a gem in his belly button too!

And lastly, pop the kettle on and join me for a cuppa! hehe I had been wanting to have a play at felting cups and bowls. Here is my first attempt, in more of the merino/silk fibre. I'm quite pleased with it, they are rather robust even tho they remain soft and flexible.

Hope you enjoyed visiting. Eat lots of chockie and I will catch you all again soon.
