wow.. it's been such a long time since i last updated. what has passed since then?

I've finally quit my job after thinking about it for a very long time & moved on to greener (i hope!) pastures. Since last monday, I've started on my new job and am feeling very tired everyday!

Katy has received Smudge a couple of weeks ago & I've received Bay from her. He's a darling little bear. ^_^ Coincidentally, we both designed our summer bears similarly. They are both going for a swim and have swimming floats and little rubber duckies! i swear they could have been siblings. hehe.. pics of them are at the end of the post.

I've actually just finished another little bear. but... he simply looks terrible... failure! that's another reason why i've been stuck in the rut for so long.. But! I've decided to leave him aside so that i can find my mojo again.  so now.. I am starting on a grey little bear today. Fur & design chosen. Head drawn already. Backing of fur is treated and waiting to dry. I can start cutting out the head tml. =)

Here's Smudge:

Here's Bay from Katy:

Smudge is on the way to Scotland! Hope she gets there soon. ^_^

Smudgy is completed!

(But i cant show you pics yet cos her new mom hasn't seen her yet.)

Well, Smudge was originally a HE but after the ears were attached, Smudge become a SHE! It's amazing what 2 little things at the sides of a head can do to change a bear's looks.

I can't say anymore now, but once Katy has seen her, i'll post up some WIP pics! ^_^

The Plunge

Well. I've finally took the plunge and signed for a bearpile account. I decided that my bears will not sell if I just let them sit at home slacking and taking any action. So out into the world they go! I think i will try it for now and see how things go.

Deep breath.

Here it is:

Bears Swapped!

Finally i can show my new bear! Melrose has reached Karon in England now. =) She has also given me a very beautiful little Forget-Me-Not.

Melrose is about 10.5 inches tall and made of Sparse mohair. She's my largest bear to-date  and my first panda.

Teddy Web Gazette 197

OMG!! I'm so surprised! My bear is in the Teddy Web Gazette  newsletter issue 197. omg! 

ok, *take a deep breath* from the beginning: 

Some time ago in december 09, i made a little bear head keychain named Pearlie (who later became Frosty). Since the fabric was from Bearycheap, i sent them a picture of Pearlie for their newsletter (they usually showcase a few bears made from their fabric in the newsletter).

since there was no reply from them, i had forgotten all about it. But today, when i opened my email, i saw Pearlie in the latest issue! woohoo~! *dancing around in joy*

Thank you for showing Pearlie in your newsletter Bearycheap! It has certainly made my day. ^_^

 Someday, i must try making an elephant. A distressed elephant.
I've seen so many Ellies around the web recently it's hard not to get infected.

And a mouse too. A lovely little mouse. Since i'm born in the Year of the Rat.

And a little mini bear-giraffe. I have some lovely fur sitting in storage.

And a large bear. An extra large one. About 1 metre tall. in shaggy maroon fur.

Ahh.. So many projects and so little time.

Maybe.. someday...

blog background

Because of Lisa of  A Whimsical Bohemian having a brilliant idea of hosting the OWOH, I came across this fantastic blog by Plumrose Lane.

If you have seen my previous blog designs, you would know that while it is simple and easy to navigate, it is supremely boring as i've been using the default templates. I've tried to customised the template but the html codes were just too complicated for me. Imagine my joy when i came across Plumrose Lane!

She has some wonderfully beautiful blog backgrounds. Do visit her! ^_^

In progress

Phew! finally managed to start sewing my new teddy. ^_^

Had a super busy weekend with not much rest in between and longing to start working on the bears. haha.. really addicted.

Started sewing the arms together yesterday and realised that faux fur is really terrible to work with. arggh! I'm so glad i bought the mohair Edward kit from Bare Clubs. i cant wait for it to arrive!

Ok, off to lunch now. Stomach growling...

Guess what this is??

it's fluff from the fur!

i bought a subscription to the bare cubs design club last week. now the patterns are all traced and cut out. 

opp sides laid out...

pile of fur...

anotherWIP.. this time of my own design.. a little mini.. hmm.. din really turn out the way i imagined it to be though... i shall work on this 2 at the same time.. haha..

looks a little like the teenage mutant ninja turtles don't you think?? i temporarily lost my mojo when i saw how this bear turned out.. then i started on the pattern from helen from bare cub.. and i'm all motivated again! =D

now this one looks like a voodoo doll. it's actually a needle felted (soon to be) bear. wonder how long i'll take for this..

hatty hats

Decided to crochet some hats for my bears. And ended up with 2 different sized hats. 1 for Frosty, and 1 for a little store bought bear.

I think Grouchy now looks like some hippie breakdancer.
