check out this giveaway....

Hurry over to Shelley's blog and get in on a great giveaway!  Make a cute little dolly with her pattern.
We all need one of these to carry around don't we?

Look at the sweet little gals she makes...  I'm waiting for a certain other little bear or kitty to appear on her site.... so I can buy one.


Well, that was pretty funny.  Mary Ann guessed right off.  Rumpelstiltskin.   But, maybe I should have chosen something or someone with a much simpler name!  Every time I write it... which, of course, now is quite often...  I have to look back at it, say it out loud to nobody in particular, and assure myself it's correct!

I put on ears and baked him...but, kind of forgot about him because I was on the treadmill.... jumped off and raced upstairs just in the  nick of time....whew...only the tips of his ears got over toasted. the long run...I could have left him a few more seconds to a minute longer anyway.  He would have been a bit browner on the tips and perhaps a perfect colour.

As it is...I did some painting... with several shades of pinks, browns, and yellows to get what I liked for his face, lip and mole colours.

It is a bit difficult to get a perfect shot that shows the real life colours.... but, get the idea.

Still a bit more work to do on the colouring.... but, he's close.... and, of course....some hair..... hmmm...but, what...I'm off to have a look in my stash of goodies...
