For those friends and family not on Facebook, this is a recent picture of our grandson, taken on a cruise in March. I think he is growing and changing more now, than when he was as a baby. Almost a teenager - it's hard to believe.

Wishing all of you a wonderful Merry Christmas and I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy the season with your loved ones. We are sitting at Tim Hortons at Peason International Airport, waiting for our son to arrive home from South Korea. Then our Christmas will officially begin!

I have decided to re-pose my needle felted chickadee on a more natural base of wood. He is secured by thread and could easily be removed, but I like the way he sits on his perch. The detailed, little needle felted chickadee is just over 3 inches long inches long and 1 1/2 inches high, with German glass eyes, a black Fimo beak and wire legs covered in dark embroidery thread and sealed with gloss varnish. He sits on a perch of exotic wood and together the piece is 3 inches high. His postage is $20.00 UPS to most places in North America or $20.00 Small Packet Airmail, overseas. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me. Thanks for peeking.

I found out this week that my wee bear and his friend, 'Oscar and Felix the Frog' have won a 2015, Toby Industry Choice Award. Now that it is officially posted on the Teddy Bear and Friends website, I can share it here. I am over the moon because I know the level of the entries in this competition is world class. It is a lovely honour to be included with so many of my peers, whom I admire, and to share these pictures with you. I hope you enjoy them.
