egg pillow

Another stuffed thing for the Gathering. It's called "Oops."

Get it? Get it? gargoyles lay eggs and so...ah, nevermind.

Just a quick post to let you all know that strange little bear and I have been accepted to the July 8th Felt Club! Apparently another vendor had scheduling issues, and I was top of the fill in list! It's a craft show in Hollywood and I'm going to start panicking about getting enough stuff together, being good enough and getting all my promotional material

Eggplant, the bear(from summer 2005).

Robyn sent me pictures of Eggplant, a bear I made in Vermont and gave to her. He's my last completely handsewn bear and stuffed with goodness knows what(a lot of dryer lint and scrap fabric, I think).

This is my favourite picture of any of my bears.

He has weird feet!

I'm going to make more vegetable/fruit themed bears in the future...even though I should be making more gargoyles! Aaaaaa.

elsie, the gargoyle

This is Elsie. Elsie is a shy little gargoyle with self esteem issues. However, today she is going to ask her crush out to the prom!

I swear, I'm going to end up creating a series of gargoyle stuffed animals based on my high school experiences. Actually, I wasn't terribly shy in high school and I NEVER asked my crush to the prom.

I started out with the intention of making cure plush versions of the Gargoyles canon characters. Hahaha, yeah right. As if I could ever develop that much attention to detail. I couldn't even remember what colour Goliath was(I couldn't remmeber if he was purple or blue. apparently it's a purplybluey.).

Stormy, the bear

Summer vacation has technically started. Yesterday was the first day I really had to stop and actually think and do things I wanted to do. Well, I did have to run over to the middle school and lubricate some swivel casters with PAM(yes, I would have preferred WD-40), but other than that, it was a nice day for me. Today, I have a strike, but I don't have to begin thinking about that quite yet.

I made another bear recently!

His name is Stormy and he wears scarves a lot. Too bad he lives in Southern California.
