Hi everyone!It's so nice to be back and share some new pics of my works in progress(and there are alot this time lol!).June has been a very busy month for me so it has been almost impossible to find time to do any updates.The first of this month was me and my sisters and yearly rummage sale along with some more health issues for me involving a shoulder impingement needing a dose of cortizone being injected into my shoulder and also discovering I have a heel spur in my foot near the ankle bone.Along with this was the prescription for naproxin 2x a day that makes me feel sooooo tired!But I did find time to work on many new creations that will be available soon.The bigger yellow/cream teddy measures 16"tall,baby kitten wears an adorable baby gown and bonnet and measures about 11 and1/2" tall,little old style polar bear is 6"tall,grey tabby kitty is 7"tall,little panda is 5.5"tall,antique style blonde teddy is 11 and 1/2"tall and my two brand new primitive panda designs are 8 and 1/2"and the larger panda measures 11and1/2"tall.The yellow teddy,grey tabby kitty,old antique style bear,polar bear and the mini panda will be making their debut in my etsy shop by next week.The rest of the gang will be available in July on ebay and my etsy shop.Thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope you enjoyed meeting the gang.HugsxxxxSharie
