I am very pleased to introduce my latest bear, OLD MAC, named for my dad (the little boy in the photo)  Old Mac is a centre seam bear, made from hand dyed red German Schulte mohair.  He stands 6 1/3 inches tall, is fully disc jointed, has black German glass eyes, a waxed nose and is firmly stuffed with excelsior. Old Mac has also been gently weighted with some steel shot, has wool felt paw pads and his mohair has been gently aged and distressed, with tiny bare spots.  His face, ears, and paws have been shaded with permanent fabric paints, for a more classic, vintage look.

Old Mac wears a hand made, leather collar, decorated with tiny vintage bells.  The collar is removable, but it takes tweezers to do it.  Shipping for Old Mac is $20.00 to most places in North America and $20.00 by Small Packet Air to Europe.  Prices are in US currency. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me - thanks for taking time to stop by.

Happy Mother's Day, Mum.  I can't believe it's been 21 years, since we celebrated Mother's Day, together.  No matter where you are, you will be in my heart, tomorrow and every day.  I miss you xx

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.
