Beautiful Rhode Island

I love the beach. Last night we took an impromptu trip to the beach. It was a perfect night and a beautiful sunset. Nothing bear related, but I felt compelled to share. I will miss Rhode Island come August!

An unexpected rabbit

There are still some details that need to be attended too, but I wanted to share a little sneak peek of my new bunny. She was supposed to be a bear, but when I had finished putting the head on the body, I felt that her head needed a little more substance so I added large rabbit ears. I hope she looks okay as an unexpected rabbit!

He's Here!

Royce arrived this morning and he is just beautiful. Even more handsome than his photos! Jeanette really outdid herself with this little guy. He has beautiful shading all around his face where it borders his mane. It doesn't really show up in photos, but is stunning in person. Thanks so much Jeanette for this treasure of a cub, I am just loving him! If you are interested in seeing more of Jeanette's beautiful creations you can visit her website at

I can't believe my name was drawn for the blog giveaway by JRB Creations! I was beyond thrilled (and shocked, I never win anything) to see my name on her blog as the winner. His name is Royce and isn't he adorable? Thanks so much Jeanette, I can't wait for him to arrive! Doing the happy dance in Rhode Island!

One big bear!!!

After years of doing miniature bears, I finally finished a big bear! I think he is about 16" (completely hand sewn) and is pictured below with my next biggest Sam (who is only 6"). He doesn't have a name just yet (any ideas), and I still think he needs some tweaking (a wow factor he seems to be missing), but I'm happy that he is at least assembled. I made him heavier than I typically make my bears so he snuggles right in and he was my first experience with Trapunto paws (and possibly my last, sooo time consuming). I would love to hear what you think, and any opinions on what to add to give him a little pop. Thanks for visiting!

A new Little Leaf

This is Sam, my newest Little Leaf. He stands a whopping 6" (the biggest I've finished) and is made out of a really fun cream mohair with a brown/redish colored backing. I gave him turned down paws and shaded pulled toes. He is one of my favorites. You can see more photos of Sam on my available page. Thanks for taking a peek!
