It's party time.......

Time for "Where Women Create II" a gathering of many talented artists and women who create, hosted by our own Karen Valentine over at My Desert Cottage. A peek at their studios, and maybe a glimpse into their heart and soul.....
A look at what inspires and makes us want to do what we love best.
This is where I create my bears and many other designs.....

A little something for a friend...
Supplies, always close by....

Bits and bobs....


Thank you Karen for a wonderful party!!! Please hop on over and take the time to visit all the participants.

Everything is happening so fast, I need a moment.....

Here we are heading into the last few weeks of June already...... where has the time gone?
Sometimes when I need a moment to recharge and relax, I love to look at my photos of "whites"......some how this makes me feel better, calmer. This may sound strange but I am always comforted by white...... What do you do to slow things down?
What does it take to make you feel at peace and relaxed?


Just to touch some soft white wool and imagine......
Okay, now I can get back to work....I just needed a break!

Welcome a Doll Maker Extraordinare....

There is someone special I would like you all to meet. Her name is Evi, and she is new to blogging.....please help me in welcoming her to our blog world!!! Her blog is called Evi's Country Snippets....even the name evokes precious images of hand made delights.
You will be enchanted as I have been by her beautiful doll making skills. Whenever Laura from 52Flea would talk about her doll maker friend, my ears would perk up and I knew she would have some interesting story to share or just maybe a photo of Mrs. Evi's dolls.....I would wait anxiously for her to post about the luncheon or the fun gals day out......come on Laura show me more.... then there they were....glimpses of sweet dolls and bunnies all dressed up in their finest clothes, each one hand stitched with love.

Here's her sweet Zoe Rose .......waiting to light up someone's heart......

What a friend.....



Maggie over at Just Between You and Me has featured me on her blogazine!!! My sweet friend Grandma Yellow Hair also known as Ms. Pearl (hilarious) has gone through some rough times lately....a serious fall that has caused much and pain and a whole lot of complications. She is recovering slowly but can you imagine, she still takes the time to blog about other people. I am honoured and touched by her thoughtfulness at wanting to blog about me.
I am far from being a super talented bear maker but I do love to make them...I can't seem to finish my cross stitch projects, and I am always saying yes when my health says sloooowww dooowwnnn...... I want to knit every pattern I see, and I love to follow blogs!!
What I do know is that I love my blog friends and I am thrilled that the other Maggie cared enough to feature me on her blog.....thanks sweetie!

Hugs,
