Fungi the fairy bear

Hi everyone,

I was gardening this morning and spotted this little fairy .She was kind enough to allow me to photograph her on her toadstool.

In the real world I just listed this wee soul on ebay tonight.She is a 4.5 inch traditional style bear with dinky wee wings.I have made her a pin cushion toadstool in red mohair with vintage mother of pearl buttons for spots.

I would love to make another one sat on a unicorn.Maybe next time....

I just finished this wee flump called Posi.She is made with hand dyed fluffy mohair.I dyed fawn mohair with olive green then sprinkled it with blue and left it an hour then rinsed.The result is a bluey greeny fawn surprise surprise!

Woo second day in a row on my blog!I still havent remembered how to do a lot of stuff but I am working on it.

I just finished a wee bluey green bear called Vertigris.I love sea colors and this one is a favourite.

I have patched him with vintage laura ashley fabric for a well loved look.

He is on ebay today.

Thanks for looking at the wee soul.

Beauregard is a very traditional boy bear in a lovely had dyed mohair.He wears a simple french silk bow and is on ebay now.
I havent been very good at keeping this up to date but plan to start!
My bears have changed a fair bit since starting this blog and so have I.I had an accident if february which left me with a mangled leg with lots of titanium screws and rods etc.Its changed my view of life as I was very lucky to survive.
I plan to live life differently from now on and do more of the things I have always wanted too.
I will start keeping this up to date too!
