I'm still here!
I didn't realize it has been almost 2 weeks since I posted! The days have flown by. I can't even remember all that I have been doing. Last week I was feeling a little off because of a "vibration" in my ear. I don't know how else to describe it...not ringing but like my ear drum was humming. After 2 days and little sleep I went to the doctor. She sees a hair poking my ear drum. The nurse flushed my ear twice with no luck getting the hair out. They made me an appt with an ear, nose & throat specialist for the next week. Bill suggested I try the stuff for ear wax removal because it bubbles up. So I tried it and sure enough a little hair about the size of a small eyelash came out. Weird huh?? The appt with the specialist was canceled(thank goodness...can't afford it anyway).
I did manage to get almost 3 critters finished. I am waiting on some accessories to complete them but I can't "reveal" them because they are going to appear at TBACA's Black & White Ball in June. I can show you Cubby"s Easter Surprise. Cubby appeared in the TBACA's Easter Challenge and is now on the front page of my web site. He is the first bent leg bear I can remember making. His little chick is needle felted, as are the Easter eggs in his basket.
I am working on a Pekingnese and struggling with it's face. They have such cute smushed faces and since this one is a request I want it to be just right.
I am also struggling with the decision about whether or not to get an Artfire shop. There introductory $7 a month forever will soon no longer be available. It will go up to $20 a month but I'm just not sure it is the right venue for me. I have to decide very soon.
