A Sunny Saturday Morning...

I woke up this morning and the sun was shining so I decided to sit on the porch and sew with Maisy. Maisy was looking so cute sitting on the porch enjoying the sun so I grabbed my camera and snapped a couple pictures of her and the flowers blooming around my porch.

My pal Sarah says these are called Camellias. There are two big bushes/tress of them in my yard and they are so pretty and hardy. They stay in bloom for a long time and also bloom twice a year. Last year when it snowed here they were blooming in the snow.

There are also some pretty tulips blooming and you can see some purple iris pushing up. I am so excited for spring!

Lastly the lilac bush is budding. Lilacs are so touchy so every year I hope they will have a good season and last a while. Lilacs are my Mom's favorite flower and I think they are one of my favorites too. They smell so good.

Captain Weirdbeard!

It has been so long since I posted! I thought I would share my newest creation. This is Captain Weirdbeard! He is a drunk little star fish pirate. He started out as a doodle and is now a completed plush made from orange minky dot fabric and felt (oh and his peg leg is a cotton wood print). Right now he has a little felt liquor bottle which I will be replacing with a better creation. Cap. Weirdbeard is wired throughout his body and can be posed in all kinds of ways.

I hope to create a new photo set with him that will include sand and beachy type things. In fact I am thinking about taking him to the actual beach for a photo shoot but we shall see if I find the time. Look for more fun plush creations soon!
