~Sharing Pics~Custom orders completed~

I'm so happy to announce I finished my three custom orders and thought I'd take a moment to share some pics of them with you.
The pink kitty on the left is much larger than my regular size measuring in at about 9 inches tall.The realistic kitty in the middle measures a tad under 13inches tall and is a very close match to Cassy kitty(her pic a few posts below)even though they are not an exact match.I could never make two exactly alike so thats what makes them special.The last teddy on the right was crafted after one of my sweet blush bears and looks nothing like the original as her mohair is denser and didn't curl as much as the original.The outfit was a special request and I just love the colors her new mommy chose as I don't know if I would have ever picked yellow as a theme.I hope you enjoyed having a peek at the special requests and I hope their new mommy will be pleased with them.If you would like to see even more pics please visit my other blog here

~update on Misty after surgery and custom orders~

As promised I wanted to pop in for an update on Misty.Her surgery went smoothly and she took it like a trooper!I do feel sorry for her as the vet found she had a yeast infection in her ears and the medicine I have to apply makes her head greasy(from her trying to wash it out)not to mention she is not thrilled went I have to apply it lol.She was very drowsey yesterday went she got home but just as I thought she still tried jumping onto things so she had to stay put in the bedroom for the night to keep her from tearing any stitches.She still insists on getting on my lap when I'm on the computer so I let her,but very carefully.I have to say this has been such a busy week I have fallen a bit behind on my custom orders.Not only did I have Misty's surgery apt. this week I have also had problems with Time Warner.....again,the phone and internet were on the blink.I had to have a service tech come on Monday only to not find any problems,then on Tuesday same thing with cable going crazy so yet another appointment today.To make the story short the tech canceled the apt today because he found it was an area problem and not any modems or outside cable lines at out home eek!The good news everything is working allright for now,so thats a good thing.I thought I would also share the other two orders I'm working on.One is a pink kitty from 2008 and I had a heck of a time even finding her pattern lol.I'm also finding the kitty in progress looks quite a bit different,more like a whimsical fantasy kitty but she is cute and I think her new mommy will be happy with her.Then there is my sweet blush bear,the original shown above
with the custom request of being in a pale yellow clown suit with matching hat and collar with pastel polka dots of pink,mint green and pastel blue.Again,the bear and the outfit are turning out beautifully but the bear looks very different from the original.I know one thing for sure~this will be my last custom order because it really stresses me out to get them just right and done on time!So thats about it for now and I will post the special orders when they are completed*~*xxxSharie

~A wonderful shop on etsy for kitty lovers everywhere~

I just had to share this wonderful etsy shop with all of my blogging friends(and kitty lovers in general!)I had the pleasure of meeting Judy Johnson through a recent pattern purchase and she is just a sweetheart~she kindly offered to post my kitty pattern and link on her blog so I had to return the favor by sharing her awe inspiring kitty creations~like the one above(LOVE*~*)so if you have a moment be sure to have a peek at her blog and etsy shop to see her amazing creations.Speaking of kitties,I am taking my Misty girl in Wednesday to have her spayed.I will be worried about her until I know she makes it through her surgery safely and is back home with me!I'll keep you posted on her results.I am also busy working on a custom order for a realistic kitty like my Cassy kitty(photo above) I created in 2010 along with a big pink kitty and a sweet blush clown teddy.I will share photos of all three once they are completed.I will also be sewing up some new creations for this months etsy update so I have a lot of work to do lol!~xxxxxSharie

~New designs in progress~Little kitty&bear pincushions~

I have been drooling over the wonderful pincushions I came across while browsing etsy and I decided I just had to try to make one,but in my own style and here it is~ my prototype kitty cat pincushion in progress~(as you can see she has no eyes or nose yet!)and I'm pretty happy with the way she is coming along.The finished pincushions will have another bottom piece attatched

~like the top~and will be made from beautiful colored wool felt that is also available on etsy.I plan on kitty,bears,elly and other friends dressed as clowns,for the holidays and other fun themes.You will also notice the tiny kitty in my hand above~I finally found a way to make a 3and 1/2 size which I am totally delighted with!I think this little size would be wonderful for Blythe doll friends.I'll be sure to post more pics in progress*~*xxxxSharie

It's been awhile since I had the chance to get any new bears and friends listed but I am happy to share the gang who...
