Some new things: Sylvia Blue is an irresistible little critter with a white panther costume. She is made with cotton yarn, which is a first for me. She feels great and is super cuddly. Just look at that smile!Another first is with Logan's Cthulhu. He is made with wool that I handspun. He took two skeins. Even though I spin I usually make creatures with acrylic yarns. I really enjoyed this venture into different materials, which I will explore some more.
Hansel and Gretel have been on the Plush Team site for a little bit now, so I thought they should be here, too. They have already been welcomed into their new home in New Jersey. These two were initially made for a plush team challenge involving favorite fairy tales and stories. My partner was Jenni from SLC Studio . She is creating a yummy pot of Stone Soup and I chose Hansel and Gretel from among her favorites. I could not create a normal duo, so I made them mutants : )

a good show : )

Ahh here is my wrinkled sign. I made it for last year's show and I have used it in 3 shows so far. The first z is backwards by accident, but it adds something to it, I think. And it's all hand stitched : )

For Craftstravaganza I brought 33 items and came home with 9. I am glad that so many things found good homes. It was cool to see so many people that I remembered from last year and a lot of people remembered me, too.
A special octopus ring : )
And a friendly face. This little bunny was a custom order that I neglected to get photographed before he found his home. So here he is for the world to see. And she's wearing the original octopus ring!
