I have to say a big thank you to all the lovely folks who are following my blog now, there are 45 of you and I think that's just awesome!!
Also a big, huge thank you to those who are consistently commenting and sending me lovely compliments on my work! I do so appreciate it and you are so good for my soul! I find that making these little guys and girls is a very isolating pass time. I normally create in the evenings but find I am making time during the day as well now. But this just means that I am sitting in my lounge on my own working away and while I do love it I don't have anyone to share my work with. Sometimes my Mum will pop over, but she makes no attempt to sugar coat if she doesn't like something, she just says "Oh no, that's not to my taste at all!" and I'm standing there all excited to show her so suddenly the wind is knocked out of me and my smile falls off! lol
Hubby is probably typical of husbands who have seen a mountain of what they consider to be the same old thing. He will say it's nice but doesn't really 'get' it. Hardly bother to show him any these days!
And I have one friend who I see once a week, so I can show them to her, she can be a bit like Mum sometimes, but at least she's honest and a little more tactful than dear old Mum! :o)
So on that note, I know hope you will all be jolly wonderful about my newest addition. (I think she's pretty darn perfect actually) So here she is and if anyone has an idea for a lovely name that will suit her please send me a comment as I am finding myself at a bit of a loss with her!
Needle Felted from Ashfords new merino/silk colour, Poppyseed
A lovely lady I found at a show makes the little lace collars! Isn't it gorgeous? She does lots of other things too so keep an eye out for bonnets and hats!
I stitched her nose from a mix of rusty red and sparkly pink threads!
I wanted to try the big toe pads I did on a previous bear! They turned out great!!
She's just a little handful! :o)
