I've been busy lately creating this little girl as a special commission for the lovely Julie Marie. It's been fun to design a bear with her wishes in mind. She named her Honeybeary and this little girl has now started her journey to America to be with her New Mum and family of bears.
I am now working on a new design for a grand 20" bear as a commission. I love big bears and am delighted to have this opportunity to bring this chap to life. We have chosen his mohair together which will be just gorgeous. Today I've been surrounded by sketches and lots of paper to work out my thoughts for this bear and his pattern design.
I have also been excited to start designing little gift hang tags of my illustrations, can't wait to show you all and launch them in my store.
We seem to have skipped Autumn and gone straight into chilly winter over here. A few weeks back I took these photos of animals around my village on a sleepy afternoon. The sheep came charging at me with a chorus of BAAA-BAAA-BAAA, sorry guys don't have any food for you!! Don't you just love those donkeys?! I have adored donkeys ever since having a dear Donkey friend in a field down the lane from my Granny's home in the Dorset countryside of England. I called this Donkey "Dinky Donkey", and he would eeeey-ooooorrrrree all the way down the field hearing me walking down the lane until we met at his gate way :)
