Year's End

Do you suppose if he's born before the end of the year, I'll get a tax deduction?? Guess not, but this little fluffy chap is well on the way. Sometimes I make the body first and have it standing by for the head (which takes the longest), but the head was first for this little guy as I wanted to see what face would show up in all the fluff - some of that great viscose I've gotten from Anna in Italy. For those who haven't tried it just go to Etsy and enter "viscose" in the search spot.
I think he will have a name and be complete in time to don a party hat for New Yeat's Eve! By the way, I didn't forget - I know he needs ears! hehe :0)

Happy Holidays!

Thanks for all the wonderful greetings from around the world! I've put them on a mirror trimmed with gold bamboo which is in my kitchen. If you look closely, there's a blue rectangle in the middle (my iPhone) with me behind it taking the photo!
And some sweet little animals on my windowsill!
For my birthday today, my family and I are going to lunch at P F Chang and then on to see the new Star Wars movie!!
May the Force be with you!!

And what a sweet addition to my greetings!

A card from all the kitties in my care - with help from a very special friend I've known as long as I've been making bears
as Donna and the Bears!! A big thank you to my friend who lives where the postmark is from!!!

Spring continues!


Rio Samba continues to open enjoying this warmth - as am I! I'm working on tiny bears early in the day and then working outside - playing really - cleaning the deck, raking, mowing, hauling leaves....

It's beginning to look a lot like...

well - Spring!

My Rio Samba rose is in bloom! Here in southern Virginia websrevexperiencing beautiful weather with temps in the high 70's! The cool is coming, though, but  
As I like to say, one day closer to Spring!!

A gift

As I was coming into the house after a trip to the gym today, I spied a tiny yellow Dandilion flower perking up at me. Certainly early by the calendar's reckoning, but it cheered me to see this gift. Unexpected things are often the best!
