so now what?

We all know where our strengths and weaknesses lie, and I am no different. Writing has never been a strong point for why am I doing this blog?  Do i have anything interesting to say about soft sculptures that hasn't been said before?  I think not. It does however provide me with a showcase for my bears and animals, and i am extremely grateful for that.  

Soooo I've decided to only write when i have something to show and to steer away from personal side of things.

Today i finished a second fox. I'm not sure i like him more than my first one, but from each new creation i will learn something new. With this one i was experimenting with widening the cheek and muzzle area, and i was happy with the results.  My husband was critical and said the legs are too it will be back to the drawing board again!  Here he is ....enjoying the sunshine in my garden.

Fox is fashioned from rich red-brown, white and black Sassy longpile velvet. He is fully jointed and poseable.

 His nose is leather and his eyes are jet-black German glass.

 Like all foxes he loves the outdoors and can be seen soaking up the beautiful sunshine.

starting a blog is hard work

I though i was reasonably 'au fait' with technology, but apparently not. This little blog has taken me the whole morning to set up.  Who knew downloading, or is it uploading??  the photos could be so involved. First they were too big, then too small........but perseverance finally paid off and I'm happy. Its so sweet to see all my babies sitting so pretty on my page. I hope you enjoy looking at them.
