The Storm is Over

Everything is so beautiful today after the all day snow storm yesterday.I know that you folks up north are shaking your heads in dismay. Here is Virginia, however, we are thrilled as snow is so rare here. I finally got UGA off the porch. I guess that he was not as thrilled as I was.

The Mad Hatter's Hat

I love the story of Alice in Wonderland and all the kooky characters.I was inspired to make a little rabbit to sit in the Mad Hatter's Hat. You can read all about him in the new Arts a Flutter which will come out on February 1.
He is number one of this design. His prototype is living with a friend in Albuquerque. Let me know if you want to purchase him in advaxcne of the Flutter release. I'll send more pictures on request.

Snow and More

There is so much excitement here in Norfolk, VA. We are finally getting a huge snow storm. We are expecting at least a foot of snow. My only problem is getting my Bull Dog, UGA, to get off the porch. I listed some cuties on the Arts a Flutter site which is due out on February 1.
Here is a preview of 3 of them. Whoops, the jointed white elephant is sold but here they are anyway.

Another Elephant

When the January issue of PFATT Marketplace was published on Sunday, I had 3 little cuties for sale. Although they all sold right away, the most popular was the pink elephant. Here is another smaller elephant made from white mohair and trimmed in pink. If you are interested in purchasing her, please email me for details.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year
I just received my March issue of Soft Dolls and Animals Magazine. The pattern for one of my historical rag dolls, the Golly Wog, is published in the issue. Golly and Teddy have a long history of friendship. On the page facing my pattern is a beautiful doll by my dear friend, Robin Seeber.For Christams, Robin presented me with 2 of her most beautiful creations.Hopefully, I can post their pictures soon.I have 4 new bears for sale in the January issue Arts a Flutter which should some out sometime today. On Januasry 10, I will have another 3 bears for sale on PFATT. I am working on them now. I hope that one of them will be a Roly Poly Teddy. I have the idea in my heart but I have to transfer it to mohair. Stay tuned. I have added a catagory to my eBay store which is: Orphan Bears Looking For a Home. There you will find some of my prototypes and bears from my collection which are gathering dust. I want to thank all of you for your kindness during 2009. I continue to pray for peace on earth in 2010.
