Time for a cat???

I had a hankering to try a little anime cat and in the midst of making one I decided to needle felt the muzzle, nose and mouth.. .. Mitzie is the result. I'm pleased with her and will try a few more ideas next time!

Blowing in the wind.... not !

Mr. Cowabunga dude ( my grandson) celebrated his fifth birthday last night with cupcakes ( his choice)... he doesn't "like" cake. Mom made them with help from Dominic, his sister Lili and his friend Carson. Luckily the recipe called for three eggs! They were great..delicious!

Happy birthday Dominic !

Do bears like ice cream?

I can only say that Parker does! I just happened across this little ice cream cone next to the check out counter at Michael's! It was just the right size for the bear I was working on.... who turned into Parker!
Parker is on BearPile now and probably will also be posted in my etsy shop ( Glass Dragon Bears Etc).
ps... Parker reminds me of Corduroy ... the bear in the book with green pants who is missing a button.
