Keeping busy....

At least I am getting some sewing done. Another bear for the Valentine show is currently being stuffed. I wasn't sure he was going to turn out the way I wanted but he is coming along nicely. I also did a couple of makeovers last weekend. I found a bear I had put away because I wasn't liking the way the face was taking shape. Sometimes it's best to put these kind of things away before you do something irreversible. I redid her mouth and nose and I think she's kinda cute. I'll introduce her next week.
The other "makeover" is in the photo above. Jessie was just not quite right. So she got a little face work, a new dress, and a ribbon on her head. It's amazing what a few changes can do(wonder if I could do the same for me??) Jessie Joy is available in my Artfire shop.

Knobby the Autumn Gnome

Still pulling out autumn decorations, when I can find them. I needle felted Knobby a couple of years ago. Autumn here in Florida means low humidity and 60 degree nights. We are still up in the 80's during the day but with no humidity it is very pleasant. The fire danger is increased though. I'm not sure what I'm going to do for Christmas this year. I usually have a lot of my shopping done by now. We still don't know where we will be, as we are in short sale limbo. I would love to be settled in our new(to us) home by Christmas but with each passing day then week.....I just don't know. I continue to sew, finishing 2 Valentine bears this week. It makes the time pass.

October's here

I got out my Halloween decorations today. I really don't have many, we rarely get any trick or treaters. Bill and I end up eating all the candy. I can't find Frankenweiner, though. I made him at least 3 years ago(maybe 4). The mohair was dyed with lime kool aid and his brow is needle felted. He wears bolts and nuts on his collar. Bill found the spring for his tail. Couldn't bring myself to sell him, so he usually comes out of the critter room in the fall. Many things were packed away in preparation for a move that hasn't happened yet. Tomorrow I will hunt him down.
All the little bears for the Holiday show are finished and waiting to be photographed. Then I need to format the web page and add Paypal buttons. Make sure to mark your calendars...Nov 20 and 21st, Teddies Worldwide Online Holiday Show.
