HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

It's been 24 years in July, since my mum passed away.  I have such lovely memories of her, both as a mum and a woman.  There was nothing she couldn't do, as far as I was concerned.  She could make re-fashion lovely new clothes out of old ones, bake the most wonderful sponge cakes, and she looked after all of us, with ease.  I miss her every day and more as the years fly by.  Happy Mother's Day, mum - you are still loved and missed.

SADIE

I am playing with needle felting again and although it is much more time consuming than making bears, I love the process.  This is my latest piece, Sadie, a Jack Russell terrier and she is bigger than usual.  She is approximately 4 inches long  x 3 1/4 inches tall.  She wears an ultra suede collar with  her name tag.  Sadie is hand felted and has taken me about 10 days, which reflects in her price.  She is the perfect size to be an accessory to a bear or doll.  The bear in this picture has found a home and he is 7 inches tall.  Sadie comes with a hang tag, signed by me.  I hope you like her.    Her shipping is $20.00 by UPS to most places in North America and $20.00 by Small Air Package to Western Europe.

NEEDLE FELTED MINIATURE DOG

I am pleased to list my latest needle felted miniature puppy, Jack and his Wagon.  He is 2 1/2 inches long (to the tip of his tail  and 1 7/8 inches high.  He sits in his hand made wooden wagon, which is made from basswood and is 2 1/2inches long x 1 1/2" wide.  It has pewter wheels and a metal handle and the wheels turn when pulled.  Both the wagon and the puppy were made by me.   Jack is just the right height to be a companion to a tiny bear.  I'm really pleased with how he turned out and I'm looking forward to trying different breeds. :)  I will consider selling the puppy and wagon separately.
If you are interested, or have any questions, please email me at:  miniatures97@gmail.com

A GREAT EXPERIENCE!

I haven't posted pictures of our grandson, Corson, in quite a while,  because he is growing up and I didn't want to embarrass him.  He's been a busy fella,  finishing his first year of high school, trying to build a career in modelling and doing a bit of acting on the side.  Yesterday, he had an amazing opportunity through his agency, to film a music video with a wonderful Canadian country music band, The Washboard Union, from British Columbia.  We were so fortunate, because they were filming in a tiny town about 10 minutes from where we live.  We weren't familiar with the band, but are amazed by their wonderful harmonies and their talent and their kindness.   Corson and two other boys, had a fabulous time making the video and even though it was a very long 12 hour day in stifling heat, the crew and the band were such fun and made the boys feel very comfortable.  They had a great experience and got lots of souvenirs and can't wait for the video to be released, in about a month or so.  Corson's comment was "I loved every minute of it".    Best of all for us, we got to see him during the filming on set.  Here are a few pictures and a huge "THANK YOU" to everyone involved.
