When my granddaughter Lili saw Fleur she immediately wanted her.... and then decided she wanted me to make her one like Fleur but red with purple petals. I have some red mohair and a huge purple flower so I will do some thinking and figure out how to make one that would stand up to an almost eight year old and her friends!
Fleur is 7 inches tall to ear tip ... and will be on BearPile soon.

EdwardJ's new look

As I was getting ready to pack up bears for Saturday's show in St. Louis I decided to give EdwardJ a bit of a "new look"...

love his mohair, a blend of silk and mohair from an English supplier!

( While in St. Louis someone fell in love ... he found a new home! )

Surprise it's not a rabbit and not a bear!

Packy the Pachyderm loves peanuts so I made him some from polymer clay ( no allergic reaction to these!). Packy is about 7" tall and made from scroungy Schulte mohair... big head style. He waiting his turn to go on BearPile....

I'm still struggling with pictures of him... his trunk gets in the way!

Iggy... a new LITTLE big headed bear

I was in the car yesterday listening to NPR when someone spoke to a guest calling him "Iggy". I knew right away that this new little guy had to have that name! I don't know why... he just did! So here is Iggy... a small 5" anime-style bear. His mohair came from Schulte... it's sort of scroungy! His head is jointed with a cotter pin/hardboard disc; but the rest is string jointed.

new little mouse

I made Parker ( Parker because he is a "nosy parker" and into everything!) in between tasks at my son's home! Then I found this metal cup at an antique store in Vinita, OK right on ROUTE 66!

After I took pictures, I remembered that Parker didn't have whiskers! So I added them!

no new revamps...

we're down in Tulsa helping our son unpack and settle in ( still). He's been gone so much on business that he hasn't done much in the last three weeks.
So... the bears stayed behind in Kansas City and some are waiting for updating/revamping. The Bright Star Promotions St. Louis bear show is coming up... March 27th. I will finish revamping and have some new things by then!

Robin's new dress...

I found the hankie but Nancy Hauk of Texas made it into the cutest little smocked dress which just fitted Robin... and then I found a tiny little basket which I filled with "grass" and little colored Easter eggs ( polymer resin).

Then I changed her pictures on BearPile and posted her on ArtFire .

By the way, the hankie has little bunnies on it!
