photo of the week...

It's taken a bit longer than usual for my second little pink gal to emerge.... I'm not having fun with my left wrist ... can't hold the tiny bits to work on them because my thumb is bothering me. I think it is because of just that...holding and almost pinching little bits too tightly. It is also the same wrist that has a big cluster ganglion ... which needs to be excised...but, so far... nobody seems willing to do it. One plastic surgeon I saw seemed totally disinclined to do surgery.... hmmm... I always thought those guys were pretty blade happy... but, now..moving on to the next guy because that didn't instill any confidence in me whatsoever.... although I guess I'm dragging my feet a bit now......














This is how she began. A chunk of rayon... that I have been using for my poodles.. of the stitched variety. Like this one...


















Once I've tweezed out lots of tufts ... I stab away til I get a little shape....














Here is the head....those arms in the back were too big for her little head...but, seeing as the arms on original Posie were huge...and now I have two extras lying about ....I may change those arms. She is string jointed...so easy enough. Just a snip and they are off... and string on the smaller ones.




























It doesn't really show in most photos..but, the new girl is quite a bit smaller than Posie... weird that...

Let's help sort out these little lights Posie...c'mon...help me....












Ooooooh..I dunno.... I think somebody is coming. Quick...get rid of them.....we're gonna get in trouble....

What? hey Posie...come back!














oops... busted......















okay then....can I have this instead? What is it anyway? ... is it for me? huh? is it? I bet it is... look.. it's just my size.....

Your teeny bears are the cutest bears I've ever seen!!! Adorable!!

Btw, it sounds like they have concerns that it may affect your tendons if they were to excise it. Have the doctors considered 'needle aspiration' instead?

Sandy said...

Well this is so adorable! You are so darn creative.

Aren't you clever?! I am really enjoying your little stuffies, you're great at this!

The series of pictures at the end had me tilting my head and saying "Awww...." SO CUTE!

These two little darlings are just perfectly adorable!!!...I hope your wrist feels better soon, that doesn't sound like fun. Sending a hug, ;)

OMG...these are just too cute! I'm sorry that you are having trouble with your wrist (could it be carpal tunnel?) but it definitely has not affected your talent in any way.

Adorable!

Not only are your bears absolutely precious and adorable, you display them with such darling poses and props! And that poodle has stolen my heart.

I have two of those ugly cysts -one on the back of my right hand and on the inside of my right wrist, but I was told by two doctors to leave them be because of the danger of permanent nerve damage from the surgery to remove them. Luckily mine doesn't bother me often unless I bump them against something. I hope yours settle down and stop bothering you.

:) very cute :)

i hope the wrist starts feeling better. i have the same problem with my left hand. there is a small cyst in my left small finger that moves around. one doctor told me that removing it could cause nerve damage but my neurologist said the chances of that are very slim. would be nice to get a straight answer out of someone. def. go to a different doc, if its bugging you it should go. if a doc tells you to just live with the discomfort, hit him. ;p joking
