"Good as Gold Gallery" - Wed. July 27 at 4:00 p.m. Mountain Time!

I am designing a pattern for the magazine Teddy Bear Review's Christmas Issue.  They would like the bear to be gold in color, so for the next 5 days, I intend to make at least 3 Gold Bears from a pattern that I design and I will post the Gallery of all of the bears on Wednesday.  I will not be selling this pattern, it will be free to those who buy the Christmas Issue of Teddy Bear Review (available in October).  The Bears I make with the pattern design will be for sale on Wednesday!  I hope you will be able to make it to my Gallery Showing!  Thanks so much!

I finally finished the Sedona Red Rock Dyed Booh!

This little one has been a few weeks in the making!   Sedona was made by dyeing her mohair with boiled Sedona, Arizona red rocks.  I needle felted and then rooted strand by strand (Joanne Livingston style!!) her muzzle with white mohair.   I hope you like her!  xoxo

Needing a bear hug and a Mom's reassuring word

Today, someone tried to break in to our home while we were here.  It made me feel frightened and violated even though they didn't succeed.   I wish Mom was here, she always knew what to say to make me feel better in every situation!   I am grateful God was watching over us.  I think Mom would say to find a bear for hugs, be thankful it ended the way it did and hope for an even better day tomorrow...

New Silk Rayon Fabric Has Been Dyed!

I just finished dyeing my latest shipment of silk rayon fabric.  Ooooh, I have some interesting and pretty colors to share!   I'll be posting them for sale from my website and etsy later today!  Whoops, I didn't even post them to etsy!  I'm pleased to say that all of the colors have been purchased from my website!  They disappeared rather quickly and it will be a while before I tackle dyeing again!  Though it is a lot of fun, it's also a lot of work!  xoxo

I'm finding lost treasures!

While making room for my new gifted bearmaking items, I have come across a few treasures that I forgot I had - this one is my favorite - a stash of antique mother of pearl buttons, some of them with beautiful etched designs.   These buttons tell a story of days gone by and they make me smile!

An Angel From Heaven Touched my Heart Today!

The doorbell rang, the UPS truck pulled away and I opened the front door to 2 full boxes of Heaven! A dear friend warned me to be on the lookout for a couple boxes she was sending. I had no idea what to expect and what I found was beyond my wildest dreams! Between the tears of joy and wondering what I can ever do to thank her, I made room for my new "stash"! I will have many bears coming soon from the most beautiful, quality mohair I've ever seen!   I humbly thank you, my dear friend, for your kindness and generosity. I am forever grateful xoxo
