Moving Sale!

I know things have been very quiet around this blog lately, but there has certainly been a lot going on.  The biggest news is – we’re moving!  And although we aren’t going too far, just up the river to another small town, it will mean a new house, a new community, and new jobs for…

More Drawings Come to Life!

It’s been busy around here as the sewing machine has been humming, my hand-sewing skills have been tested, and I’ve been experimenting with new materials.  16 creatures are almost ready to make the journey to their new homes.  This is the last of the group of 43 that I have been working on for the…

I am NOT just a sewing machine

Looking back at my blog posts over the last few months it might seem to you that I do nothing but sew cute cuddly create-a-creatures.   And although that part of my life and business seems to have grown exponentially and taken up a larger portion of my time – I really have been doing…

More Creature Friends

It’s a Squirrel!

Although I mostly bring children’s drawings to life, every once in a while I am asked to make something a little more complicated.  I do love these extra challenges, and although there is always those stressful moments (Will it balance?  Will it stand?) I am actually beginning to love working in 3 dimensions. How can…

A Few More Creatures Greet the World!

It has been a whirlwind here this week.  I switched some days with my co-teacher and so worked as a full-time teacher this week.  I loved being with my students all week, but I had forgotten how tiring teaching Kindergarten can be!  In amongst that I also taught sewing to a very full class of…
