Ok, I was working really hard yesterday on a new piece and pretty much got it finished except for the ears. When my husband got home I excitedly held it up and said"What do you think?"
"What is it?" he asked.
"You can't tell? Look at the legs"
"I don't know."
"Well don't you see the tail. the long tail?'"
"Yeah, I don't know. Wait , it kinda of has a cat shape head..."
"Yes it's a cat, didn't you SEE the TAIL?"
"Yeah doesn't have any ears, so I couldn't tell..."

So, it's a black cat and if he can't see it up close and personal a photo won't do you any good:)

"Hi dear, what did you make today?"
"Nothing hon, nothing at all."

It's fall y'all!

-- Posted while out and about
The leaves aren't changing here in Florida and it's hot as ever but fall is here.
Maybe soon we'll get a cool breeze. Hope you have a good season of gentle winds, autumn colors and an occasional evening by a good fire.

Working, working...

I don't have any pictures to post unless you find patterns and cut out body pieces fascinating. My time has been spent trying to organize and create my line for next year while getting ready for my next show.

So there are new patterns here and there and the bodies waiting to be put together bagged and laying around. oh and let's not forget the clothing to yet be sewn. Sigh.And still all these ideas are running around in my head, jumping over each other trying to confuse me. One at a time please!

In the meantime all those cut out pieces are jockeying to be made, going me first, make me first! I think I need a cold drink, I'll just hold it to my forehead. Did I hear a bear calling... ah, back to work.

Auction Piece for Teddy Reunion in the Heartland

Well, this is what has been keeping me busy.This is my auction piece for Teddy Reunion in the Heartland 2010 to be held in Clarion, Iowa in June 2010.

This is Remember Me... I Remember You.

It's a Sailor Angel watching over a loved one as she feeds the birds.

There's a close up of each. He wears a National Defense medal.

She wears a replica of an apron from the thirties or forties.

His uniform represents a soldier who has not yet achieved rank in honor of all the young men who have been lost in war. He represents our young women too. I chose a sailor in honor of my husband who served his country for 23 years. He looked so handsome in his white uniform, and he loved wearing this one best even over his chief uniform though he loved being a chief.

We haven't forgot the loved ones we lost... we remember.

This show is only held once every five years and I am happy to be attending again. The whole town welcomes you with open hearts and even homes. They put the artist and collectors up in their homes.

The town feeds you and the artists get to ride in the parade, how cool is that! All the auction pieces will be on their website soon. I'll post that info at a later date.

I better start thinking what my spectacular piece will be for the show. Ahh, back to work. Now, do I remember what sleep was like?!
