We're coming up Trunks!! :o)

Hi all! There has been some fun creations appearing in my cabinets and I just had to share this one with you!

Elle is a lovely lady elephant, she is felted in a rather unique smokey mauve coloured romney, 5 way jointed and has the most elegant trunk!

She is wearing clothing completely of my own design and hand stitched and embroidered by myself!

Click on the pics to enlarge them, she has the sweetest embroided hem!

I had so much fun creating Elle, I hope she finds a wonderful new home!

This fellow has been made to order!

Some new brooches! The flower has removable leaves depending on how you want to wear them!
The Arts Circle is just a few days away so I hope to have new show photos for you, it should be a very inspiring day out!
Happy crafting all!

It's Hippo time!!

Hi all! Hey, is anyone else getting loads of Anonymous comments on their blog? They are driving me MAD, keep thinking I'm getting a nice comment from someone and it's just a spammer! Know how to stop it?? I would love to find out!!

On a far nicer note, we have some new additions in the Little Handfuls Den. Please welcome Henrietta, she is my first ever Hippo and I am so pleased with how she has turned out. I wasn't sure what accessories she needed when she was made, she sat 'naked' on my desk for a few days and then it struck me! She is a perfect little Ballerina and I do hope you all like her!!
Then we have Lacey, she was created for the up coming Doll and Bear show as they have a Lavender and Lace theme this year! I made her little hat and coat from a pattern which was supposed to be enlarged for a much bigger bear! :o) Worked out really well.

So I hope you enjoy checking them out and I always look forward to hearing from you!

Kindest regards
Henrietta is felted from a gorgeous hand dyed Merino
She is so nicely sculpted!

Lacey is felted from a Merino/silk blend with lavender embroidery

New Little Handfuls!

Hello Everyone! Hope the new year is treating you all well!
We have had an inspiring and refreshing start to 2010 with our first ever family holiday and some new year resolutions which are going well thus far!

Prudence is a lovely, traditional little girl bear. She wears vintage lemon coloured lace, soft and feminine. She is felted in a gorgeous hand dyed wool of rust and lemon.

Beach Bears! These fine fellows were created while we were away on holiday! I promise I DID get out in the sun and surf some of the time too!! :o)

Felted in Ashford Cookie colour corriedale this little lady bear was made for an order and now sits with her 'hubby' bear making a beary lovely couple!
Gruffy is a stern looking fellow with a sweet sence of humor! Boo!!

Catnip is my first ever cat! When I realised that I hadn't done one I had to amend the situation immediately! Isn't he sweet!!?
Hope you enjoyed these latest additions to the Little Handfuls Den! It's coming into show season here in New Zealand, so I am sure there will be a lot more to see very soon!!
Thanks for dropping by!!
P.S. You can find me on facebook if you are interested, just look for Liza Adams and I have a Little Handfuls fan page too! :o)
