I decided to make a Charlie brown tree. So here goes.........I had some flowers on long stems so I decided to strip them of their flowers to use the stems. I know I would not use the long stems with the flowers.
Stems are striped and here is a picture to go by.
I had an old wreath that I was going to get rid off so I decided to take the pine ends off for my tree.
The branches are all taped on and ready for the floral brown tape. Now if I was to do it again I would first tape every thing with the brown tape. But I did not have any at the time so I used green floral tape. I would of made it easier.
I didn't have a blue little blanket to wrap around the tree, so I used a scarf and I see someone has fallen asleep under the tree.

Well here it is Nov 30 and I just put my tree up. I decided to do something different. I put up what is called half a tree. It is like the tree was cut down the middle. It hugs the wall. I also went out and bought a flocked garland and cut it apart to add to the tree so it looked like it had snow on it. I think it turned out not bad. I was inspired by all the snow we got and how nice it looked on the trees that I decided to try and get the same look. Well close to it. So here it is ......
The bottom picture the lights are on but it looks
much nicer then in the photo. More pics to come when I get it decorated.

I just listed Gentle Spirit on a 7 day auction on ebay.
His auction will end Oct 27, 2013 14:03:11 PDT.
Click on the link above to go to his auction. I was going
to list him last month but it was not in the cards at that time.
It has been a crazy month and a half.
My mom passed away last month, god rest her soul. She
was an awesome lady and I will miss her dearly.
She loved to watch me work on my bears and see them come to life.
She was one of my biggest fans. Love you mom!

I had a chance to go to Bear Country USA and I just love seeing all the bears. I will be posting pictures here on my blog later on. I am traveling through the USA on my way home from a great visit with my daughter and family.
So you will have to pop back to see some of the pictures I took of the bears.

Well to my surprise Dudly is in the October 2013 Teddy Bear & Friends issue. I was so excited!
I would like to thank Joanne Livingston for encouraging me to try a more realistic style bear. I think she has inspired a few people as she has so generously showed how to do different technique on her blog. I have tried the techniques out on Dudly plus for the first time needle felting an open close mouth. It took a bit for me to figure it out and also teeth. I am pleased on how it all came together.

Well I have three bears cut out from this lot of mohair. I am going work on more bears this year. For the past few years I have not been producing much in the line of bears. I am working on different ways to create bears. I have been learning a lot from Joanne Livingston . From there I have been experimenting with different products on how to create more with my bears. I just finished an open close mouth bear with teeth, leather paw pads and nails. I am loving the new procedure I am useing to creat these bears. So stay tuned for more up dates.

Well here it is 2013 and almost the end of feb. Where has the time gone.
I also have another bear cut out and ready to sew. It is a bit bigger then this oneand a different color. I am hoping I will get back in the groove for 2013 with my bears. These bears are a new pattern I have created. They have no neck joint but armature that goes from head to bottom of body. A couple of new things I am trying this year. More to come.
