What fun!

Everybody needs an extra giggle or a good laugh...and poor old Lyle definitely provided that didn't he?  I loved making him. Especially enjoyed all the comments.... what fun.  And... I have to say... I'm no sculptor.... anybody can do this.  Dawn makes it easy with lots of photos and great instructions.  It is like a paint by number project... using bits and bobs of clay instead of brushes and paint.  Although..you do use some brushes too! and paint....
I think I need to look for a few more shells.  Manly man shells........ no more frilly bonnets.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And, speaking of bear making.... we weren't? ..oh.....

Sage and Otis had fun getting ready to fly to Ontario.  They were giggling and jumping in and out of tissue paper.














Arranging it just so in their little bags.....















Enjoying the whole procedure....


































ahhhh....got it..... that's perfect now.......

Sage disappeared...down deep into pinks and yellows....































She mentioned how dark it was...but, that she thought it would be perfect for sleeping all the way there on the plane .....















...and murmured something about how her pretty tissue was like special sheets....  and so comfy.....

These two are headed to Ontario for a silent auction in aid of the Primrose Donkey Sanctuary.  If you would like to place a bid for either of them... email me ( vphilion@telus.net) with the amount and I will make sure it is entered on the appropriate bid sheet.  The top bidder (including all the attendees as well as the online bidders) wins the bear.... but nobody knows who that is till the end of the day.  Why not put in a bid and see if yours is the winning bid?   You could win a cute little needle felted bear and help a great cause.  Serious bidders only, please.

If you want to know more about Sheila and the sanctuary ..  my special little cause...... click the direct link on my sidebar near the top....

Sage is 2.5 inches, felted from hand dyed New Zealand Romney wool.  She has black onyx bead eyes, an embroidered nose and wears a little garland of tiny flowers.  She is string jointed for gentle posing.
















Otis is a whopping 3.25 inches... felted from Natural Alberta Romney wool.  He has black onyx bead eyes and an embroidered nose.  He wears a turquoise glass bead around his neck...I don't know why, but he stole it from my bead bowl one day and insisted on carrying it around....

Otis and Sage are travelling in style and I'm sure they will be a big draw card at the silent auction. I love the character traits you bestow upon each of your creations, Vee.

I love the way you bring your little bears to life and show us their wonderful little personalities! These two are such gorgeous characters.. Otis, so cute and cheeky looking, and Sage so sweet and darling. I'm sure the bidding on them will be rather fierce, and they will go to wonderful homes. Give them both a wee cuddle good luck from me. :-)
