I want to thank everyone that purchased my books, art and critters this year, from my shows, or my website. As you know, I often use blog posts to promote my work,
and at years end, I present you with some offerings that didn't find new homes this year; perhaps one will speak to you.
Allow me to introduce you to several furry friends,
from the smallest to the largest.
The pincushions in the background are mine, I really put them to use! But I have some similar to these, still available.These are needle-felted with my sheep's wool...as are
All leaping buns are $112. You can hang them from your tree, or pop them in a flower pot with the stiff stem included.
I started the season with 11 cats. This is the last of the litter
You can see more photos of these 3 kitties on my website. Oops, that last kitty is not Midge, she is Tink.
Thadeus Beebe is a rather large fellow. Stitching his topcoat with tails was
quite a job, but I think he looks just dandy in it.
Speaking of stitching rabbit-wear, it is quite an undertaking to dress a rabbit.
I must first make the patterns to fit a particular bun... many of the buns are different shapes, heights and widths, so one size does not fit all.
I make the patterns with paper towels because you can wrap them around the bodies for a good fit.
Next I find the most becoming fabrics with a hint of history. I use tea, coffee and dye to age the fabrics.
I had a particularly nice time dressing these 2 fine ladies.
Both ladies are quite tall at 14" with amber glass eyes, articulated neck and arms.
They are needle-felted with alpaca wool and merino sheep's wool.
Odette is stitched with a lovely copper colored English Mohair. Honora is stitched with a deep rust colored English Mohair.
Honora wears a straw bonnet with old ribbons and millinery, her bodice would have been worn with a big hoop skirt...if she were a human. but rabbits cannot leap in hoop skirts, so we left it at that.
Nigel Willowbright is sold. I have to confess, I was sad to see him go.
Odette wears a nest of flowers for a hat, a bodice and a bustle.
Each of these large rabbits is $550.

There are more birds and rabbits on my website. PLEASE visit the site to take a look at more of my items, my books, my art. James did a wonderful job re-making our website, and even if you don't wish to purchase anything, take a stroll through our site, I would like your feedback.
