Onto another project.

Well here we are again and onto another new project. I started to think about doing plant pokes and then had some people say that they would get wet and buggy. Living in Arizona, we don't have that problem but I guess you would in other parts of the country.
So it was suggested that I try the bear heads on pencils or pens. I have done a couple on pens but I think the pens are kind of short so I have done several on pencils. I think if people want they can still poke them in a plant but that will be up to them.
This is the only one I have photographed at the moment but I have a dozen made in different colors. I have them in grey, brown, tan and this rust color. I have some with flowers glued on the ear and some without. Each will have a ribbon around the neck. I still haven't decided what I need to charge for these. It will have to be somewhere from a dollar to two dollars. I will never get my time costs but this has been a fun project and keeps me busy. Let me know your comments.
If you would, become a follower and you will know when I have a new project in the works. I have a few more ideas that I am working on so hopefully over the next few weeks when it is too hot here to be anywhere but in the sewing room, I will post some more new things.
Everyone take care and don't forget to check out all the things on my website that I have put on clearance. I really need the room for some new things LOL.

Feather bears

Here are my bears that I made with a faux fur called feathers. It is really different to work with and I think the brown and pink ones are cute. But the black one just doesn't look right to me. These are 10 inch bears, made from my newest design. They all have leather foot paws and are 5 way jointed. The top fur on each of them is grey and white but it really doesn't show well on the black. I am going to make a couple more of them and they are available on my website.

Our weather here is the desert is getting very hot now as it is going into the summer. We had 100 degree temps almost all of May and then this first few days of June, it has only got into the upper 90's. Yes I know, most people will say that is really, really hot but we don't have much humidity and so if you stay out of the direct sun, you don't feel too bad. Of course we pretty much live inside this time of the year and just get out in the mornings when the temps are still in the 70's. Grocery shopping and any yard work is done before 9am.

I have some more bears in the works and will try to get them posted in the next week or so.
