Just received these beautiful pieces of Italian 9mm viscose with names like - cookies, creamy, and cocoa! Sounds like a teddy bear tea party in the making!

This sweet Little Miss arrived on Easter! I made her for Kim from a pattern from Mo Malron at Crochet Objet. I've ordered cotton from her Etsy shop Crochet Objet and used that for little bunny's body.
I'd like to take you on a photo shoot around the cherry tree in my front yard:
The blossoms start out white and turn pink before they blow away. They are never on the tree long enough.
Happy Spring to all!!

Here's Molly and her special friend! Molly is about 3 7/8 inches tall. Her fur is a delicate mauve color and is viscose I ordered from Italy. I hope you'll visit the preview to see all the wonderful bears (this is a "bears only" show - though they can have friends!) on the preview page!
All the Bears have been adopted! Thanks everyone!!

Once a year, those interested in the needle arts have a wonderful show to look forward to here in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. It lasts for 4 days and I have been know to go each of the four days in years past. Yesterday was the first of the four days this year, and I made a quick run through checking out the hundreds of vendors - and stopping at my favorite. Each year I buy threads, beads, tiny buttons and trims from this shop:
I first saw Cindy Oravec on the Simply
Quilts show years ago! Imagine having her and a bit of her shop right here!
Do check her website: www.quiltersfancy.com
I'm off soon for another day of shopping!

I recently finished and shipped a special order for a red, white, and blue bear.
This is Yankee Doodle!!
He's such a cutie up close, I think!
It was pretty col while I was making him, so I thought he
needed a mohair scarf.
He also traveled with a white hat as well as a red one. A guy needs
a change of wardrobe, don't you think??
So glad his new Mom - Margaret - was pleased. She
only had to wait a little over a year!! Do you remember
a red, white, and blue bunny I posted - well this
is his cousin. What a pair, eh??

What a wonderful surprise to learn of two TOBY awards this year for my panda Billy and my bunny Lilly! Each of these are about 4 inches tall. Billy lives with Pat and Lilly lives with another Donna. Can't wait to tell them! Many thanks to Teddy Bear and Friends magazine and those who selected my bear and bunny for the awards!!
