Dip your Tootsies in the Little Handfuls pool!

Hi Everyone!

How are you all? I hope everyone in the cold is keeping warm, and all those in the heat are keeping cool! :o) As for me, I'm in the wet and trying to keep dry! lol

I've been spending far too much time at my 'real job' lately and haven't gotten anything finished in ages! (peace felt doesn't count as I pretty much finished it a month ago!) This little bear was started weeks ago and because it was such slow going working with this ultra fine merino I put it aside and was not tempted to finish it in my rare spare moments!

I finally got it done tho and I'm really pleased with the results! Here is Tootsie!

Yup, those are tootsies! :o)

Don't you love that little face.
Keeping the fibre amounts in scale was really tricky, so the feet ended up rather large! Now who's to say that's a mistake!!
Such a thoughtful little bear!

I hope you enjoyed visiting Tootsie and thank you so much for dropping by!

Peace Felt

Hi Everyone

Some of you may have heard about the Peace Felt project which has been running for the last month or so. Today/yesterday (depending on your timezone) was the official day of Peace and felters from around the world have been creating works from their hearts and souls with the vision of peace being their inspiration.

These wonderful pieces of art are then posted forward, to someone they have never met! In this way it is a circle of giving with no comparisons or disappointment, just giving and receiving with the peaceful spirit of sharing as it was intended.

I have really enjoyed making my piece. What I wanted to do was to create something that embodied peace in two ways, World Peace and Peace Within. I guess this is because, for myself, finding my inner peace is often difficult! I am always dashing about, thinking of the next thing I am doing, and worrying about everything all the time. This figure epitomises inner peace for me, and I hope that the lady I am posting it to will feel some of that also!

Here you can see Australia and New Zealand along with my tag.

I tried to get a few other countries on there too, as close to their shapes as I could!

Thanks so much for dropping by!

Midnight the Moon Fairy Bear

Hi Everyone!

Well It's been nose back to the grind stone for me! I have so many orders at the moment I'm having trouble keeping up! But this little fellow was rather tempting and I got rather 'in the zone' with him and just kept working and working until he was done! So thanks to my lovely repeat customers for giving me these inspirational pieces to create! This one is therefore made to order so he is already sold! (awwwwwww sorry folks! lol)

Midnight is needle felted from black alpaca fibre which I blended together with some gorgeous, sparkly glitz fibres!
I attached these lovely polymer clay wings to his back which were made by a friend of mine!
Midnight has lovely 'gems' for his toepads with the bigger one being a heart shape!
Don't you just love this little eyes! I used a metallic thread in silver for his nose and other features!
Hope his new Mum will like him, he was inspired by the water fairy I did recently too apparently! So if you like the idea of a unique fairy just drop me a line at and let me know what tickles your fancy! :o)
Happy crafting all!
