My New Critter....

Well actually it's a giraffe.  I've just painted the last of his spots & now he's ready to go to the Ipswich Doll & Bear Fair tomorrow.   Last weeks show was a bit slow so here's hoping this one will be a bit more lively.

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Off To The Bear Show On Sunday In Brisbane....

It's on at the Holiday Inn on Roma Street from 10am - 4pm.  These are some of the bears & critters I'm taking.  It's hard work getting them all dressed & finished off especially as I've been battling a cold for the last couple of days.  Then to top it all off my son rang this morning to ask if he can move back home this afternoon.  (He's been gone 3 years).  Just hope my daughter doesn't go into labour this weekend, that would really throw a spanner in the works!!  She's actually due on the 29th.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

I'm In Love....

With my very first little dog!  I've named her Lucy after our very special dog who is no longer with us.
I've made her out of dark brown viscose & then dressed her in a little spotted dress, knitted cardy & topped it off with a vintage RSPCA badge.  I love those big soulful dark eyes!

She's coming with me to the Brisbane Bear Show, on this Sunday at the Holiday Inn.

If you want to make her yourself, she is from the Noble pattern range.

A big hello to all my latest followers.  I hope you all have a great week!
