I've just listed the two tiny bears above in my Etsy shop! Both are about 4 inches tall but are as different as can be! Fluffy is made from the softest Tissaval fur you can imagine and Blossom is dressed for a garden party in a lovely green dress my daughter, Kim, knitted just for her. I hope you'll stop by the shop and read all about them!
Both bears have been adopted!! Thanks so much, Jill!

Last weekend was exciting in Hampton Roads as tall ships visited the ports. We went to Yorktown where the Hermione from France was visiting after her maiden voyage across the Atlantic.
Many artists displayed their wares at the event including my friend and clay instructor, Lynne Oglesby.
Jason was along with us and chose one of her mugs
Picture quality doesn't do it justice but I was taking the photo from the back seat of a moving car! Lynne's charming illustrations make her pottery so special in our home and now in Jason's new home!

The one of a kind (because of limited materials available) young lady shown above will be offered in the Etsy shop after the magazine with her ad is mailed. Just thought you'd like a sneak peek! To be fair, I cannot offer her for sale before then, but check back here in a couple of months for info on when she'll be available.
Our plan is to have bare bears and outfits available separately so that you can dress the little bears - or not - to your satisfaction. I'll have more info on that soon!
Do check out Kim's Ravelry page to see some of her magnificent pieces!www.ravelry.com KimGriffin

The phrase "you could have knocked me over with a feather" comes to mind! I knew that a lovely article about me written by Pam North was to appear in the upcoming issue of Teddy Bear and Friends magazine, but what a surprise to see Dandy Lion on the cover of the digital edition this morning!! Thank you Pam, Joyce Greenholdt, and all the staff at the magazine and Jones Publishing, Inc. What a surprise and what an honor!!

This tiny tangling panda had a few steps in his development.
Tiny head first gets nose and eyes!
Then a body - and I can already tell he's a sweetie!!
And the white is added to each eye!

All that April rain has brought magnificent flowers! I think I've added photos of this clematis every year as the blooms are just so stunning!
And the tangles continue whenever I have a spare moment.
I hope the recipient will enjoy receiving it!
I hope everyone is enjoying May as much as we are!

The architecture and art of the Grace Episcopal Church in Providence is spectacular.
I was lucky to be there at a time when the church as open to visitors and we were allowed to photograph the magisty.
I was so delighted with my iPhone's ability to take wonderful low level photos with no flash. I'll soon post more photos from the Rhode Island School of Design which also had the "no flash" requirement for photographing.
