I had a wonderful holiday. France Germany and then the wonderful cruise in Alaska. I had the best time. But on coming home I ended up tearing a couple of ligaments in my back by doing the simple of things. I bent down to pull a weed from between the pavers. Yep gardening will get you every time. Its been a month now and still it hasnt healed. It may take another month before it comes right and only if I rest. .....Doh!....sigh Eventually I will put holiday shots up but my back just will not allow me enough time on the computer to get it done at the moment. At the moment I am making Ducks. My next online show will be 'The Teddybear and critters 2011 Valentine show'. I also am planning critters for competition. My Vampire Duck 'Roberto Patisini receing an award for outstanding achievement in design and workmanship.
I enjoy creating my 'Teddy Style platypus'= PUDDLES from a variety of materials.
I love using Sassy mini fabrics and my all time favourite fabric is the Japanese silk. I totally and absolutely adore it. The many pile lengths and its ability to be dyed leaves it self open to my creative flow.
