I'm Sorry

Just a quick hello to say I am sorry I have been absent for so long.

A few Bears

These teddy bears are living with me or my children for an assortment of reasons.
Some sit on my shelf awaiting finishing touches or just because I wasn't totally satisfied with the final look. A few are just waiting for me to find a home for them.
 This pair now reside in my daughter's room. She took one look at them and begged me for them, what could I do.
I listed this pair on e-bay a while back, but they failed to find a home, so now they are living in my display cabinet.
I never listed this little girl and her cat. They are Halloween themed, so I guess they will have to wait for the proper season.
 This little Christmas bear never found a home because I was not totally satisfied with her face.
This pair were so much fun for me to make, but alas they did not find homes when I listed them on etsy. I found the inspiration for them in a magazine. Teddy, cat and pumpkin are all needle felted.
Edgar Allen Poe sort of crept into my thoughts one day and I made this pair. They live with my daughter on a shelf in my grandson's room.
These cuties live with my niece in New York.
 My daughter talked me out of this little pumpkin bear.
 Once again, one of my daughters claimed this little bear.
 And finally, this little guy is my mascot. I made the hand puppet for a story time my daughter did at a book store, so now my little teddy wears it.

A teddy tale about two little bears.
It has been a long while since I have made a teddy bear. My head has been full of ideas, but I never seem to find the time to actually make them. The two teddy bears on this post were made last year, and were listed  for sale on my etsy store, but alas they did not find homes.
This little fellow was so much fun to create, he seemed to have a mind of his own and dictated the things he wanted to carry with him.
His little hand knitted hat has watch parts sewn to it.
On his belt he carries all sorts of useful thing, he can never be sure when he might need something, a light, key or button, so he is prepared.
He is even handy at mending his own socks.
How could anyone not be in love with that face?
He is a collector of useful things!
 Miss Scarlet is a real lady, and knows her own mind.
She is dressed in her very best dress,
With a ribbon for her head.
Her companion, little hare
wears a little bow with a rose and
his little white cotton tail.

I am hard at work on a new teddy bear.
