Wet felting class

Felted Bag, I made this too!!
wool roving

felt. I made this!!

Felting tools

Well yesterday I took a class taught byUna of wooly walkers .. Oh what fun. I made a little piece of felt and a cool bag. Who'd a thought it would be so easy. All you need is soapy water, a bit of merino wool roving, a piece of netting, a piece of pool cover, a slice of pool noodle and a couple of strings to secure the pool cover to the noodle and last but not least a whole lot of imagination!!..That's it.

We're finally off to Canada

Hi all, Mack here. Well as you can see my sis Emmy is finished. She's the one in the middle. And my dopey brother Houds on the end in that goofy pose. We leave for Canada next Tuesday as Vee has to trim us up and make our hang tags. We will be sorry to leave Washington as we know it's plenty cold in Canada. Hopefully our new mom, Susan, will keep us plenty warm..Thanks for watching us come to life.

Belated Bucket List

Please accept my appologies for not posting sooner. But, it seems this nasty virus I got had other plans for me, like broncitis and sinusitis. I'm feeling a bit better now so must get this list done. Last Monday I got myself tagged by The Neophite Blogger

Have you heard of The Bucket List? Well, that's what I want from you! Make a list of things you want to do before you die. It must be at least five items - and you can make it as long as you desire. Photos are optional. And let's hear about some of the wackiest, most bizarre to-do's on your Bucket List!

So here are the things I want to do before I die:

1. Never get this nasty virus again!!!

2. Get my butt back to New York City and take my husband, can't believe he's never been.

3. Ride every rollercoaster in the US.

4. Swim the English Channel.

5. Get upfront and personal with a Polar bear.

Ok, so it's not world peace. Enjoy!

Sorry for not posting and a few items felted by Geri Williams

I apologize for not posting lately but have been a bit under the weather. So I thought I'd post a couple of pin cushions that were needle felted by my friend and business partner Geri Williams.

Geri and I met at a local Teddy Bear Club Meeting in 1993. I had just started making and selling mohair hand made Teddy Bears under the name Bearly Legal Bears. Geri and I became friends and would see each other at local shows and the like. At that time Geri was making alot of bears out of real fur, like coats and stuff. Eventually she moved on to Mohair and and became famous. We both designed bears for QVC. Geri also went on to design for Disney and has done shows in Japan, Germany, England, Australia and New Zeland. Geri has aslo won numerous awards in the Teddy Bear World. Currently Geri teaches classes in Australia, New Zeland and the United States. She is also working on a Needle Felting book for advances needle felters.
