URCHINS WHO MAYBE HIDING IN SANTA'S SACK



Its been exceptionally busy in the Urchin workshop this last month, and I thought I would share with you some pictures of the new Urchins that have been made. 

Some maybe being prepared to be put into Santa's sack for a Christmas delivery.  Now I hope you all have been good girls and boys you never know a little Urchin might be under your tree on Christmas morning :-)

If you are a fan of the Urchins there is a brilliant Facebook site called Doodles Diaries and it features a little Urchin called Norm with his new pal Doodles, it will certainly make you smile when you see what Norm and Doodles get up to.  This is just a few of the pictures to show you what they get upto, they are always upto mischief.





This is my favourite picture Doodles wrapping Norm up for Christmas.

FLUFF AND STUFF


Wow its nearly been a month since I last posted, I can't believe where the time has gone too and its nearly Christmas.

I have been really busy with orders and having lots of fun with the new "I Love Urchins" Group on Facebook, some of the pictures posted by Urchin collectors have been amazing and so funny, if you have a spare moment you might like to have a little look, with over 200 members there is plenty to see.



This is one of the many pictures posted by members of the group.  These Urchins appear to by very naughty and upto mischief.

I have had lots of fun making some really fluffy big 15 inch Urchins this last month, and have lots of ideas for new ones.

I LOVE URCHINS



Yesterday I launched a Group Page on Facebook called "I Love Urchins", for collectors and fans to have a chat and perhaps share pictures of some of their Urchin friends.  I am so thrilled it has been really well received with over 70 members already.  If you would like to join in the fun, have a chat with other collectors and have a laugh at some of the pictures already showing, please do as this is an Open Group for all to join.

If you would like to join in please click 'I LOVE URCHINS"

Right I have lots of new Urchins to make and a couple of new wacky Kats, so I have a busy weekend ahead.

Hope you all have a lovely Halloween weekend, don't be tricked LOL!

PRETTY IN PINK

I did not realise it had been a month since I last posted....what happened to September!  I know it was a very busy month for me, especially with the Hugglets show, which turned out to be a brilliant show for me with plenty of commissions and orders, so these will keep me out of mischief for awhile :-) but I must remember to keep postingLOL!

I thought you might like to see a few of the new 8 inch Urchins I have made for One More Bear in Staffordshire,  and they all have a touch of pink.




Well I am going to say bye for now as I want to get on with my new 10 inch minty green, alpaca, wacky kitten as I just love the colour and I have the best part to do...the nose :-)

SUMMER SCENES IN MY ENGLISH COTTAGE GARDEN






Betsy Butterscotch perhaps my last bear for this summer!

Well it looks like our summer has said its goodbyes for this year, so I thought I would post some pictures from my garden without the snow LOL!!

Its amazing what you can do with an old sink and a chimney pot!

Trying to brighten up an old brick wash house with trailing begonias.


I'm a Poppy lover.




A tiny visitor.

Teasing you with Teasles :-)

I think I need a new bicycle!


I hope these sunflowers, honeysuckle and beans are disguising the outside toilet LOL!!


A small corner of my cottage garden.



Before and After.


Before and After.
It won't be long before we are picking up the leaves again, its such a shame our British summers do not last very long.
A wild flower spot in my garden and of course it has to have Poppies.

An old stone area.

I hope you have enjoyed this little peek around parts of my cottage garden.
