Blowing out the cobwebs

It's been a busy month so this morning was all about de stressing and blowing out those cob webs.

So I took Bunny , my salty old sea dog on a four hour walk , she did a lot of swimming in the sea and it was surprisingly warm for this time of year.

It's a good time to think and plan before 2019 arrives. So I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful happy New year filled with joy

Hartley Hare Puppet

Imagine my delight when I was asked to make a Hartley Hare Puppet from the 1960s.

I really enjoyed making and designing this one, I made him rather big, with jointed arms and legs that swing freely, causing more animated movement.

A large puppet with a lot of hand sewing.

I hope the recipient loves it, as it's been commissioned as a Christmas present.

I hope you are all on track for Christmas, I have a lot of catching up to do :)
