This guy is all ready to be stuffed and there is a big pink bunny sitting next to him... things are in fact happening. Slow yes, but surely just the same.
The studio has been busy. More busy that I have hours to give, but it feels good to be working furiously and then skip out on it all to care for my kids, myself, my family. They're still so little I keep reminding myself. Now just 3 and 6 they're all love and play and energy and chaos. I miss the days in my old big studio where I could spend long days and work into the night, but this... this right now: this is better. This is rich and full and hard and I love it. So with all that energy and heart, when I sit down to make one or two of these pieces, I'm showing up with my whole heart, and I think all that goodness gets in there too.
I've been working on a few new bears and animals. Many more are in the works and I'll post images as they come together over the new few weeks. My hope is to have a website update later in March. I'm excited to be working on some pieces that I've had cut out for years, and a few new pieces like this panda, which I just hand dyed the fabric for... it all feels new and fresh and I'm so pleased to be spending a little time just like this...
Making two new bears old...
I've been surprisingly prolific in the studio the last few days. I had been starting so many bears and animals, and now things are quickly getting finished and ready for a website sale... Wednesday? Thursday? Stay tuned.
