First I would like to thank each and every one of you for your continued support and understanding during this transitional time in my life. It seems my muse is getting restless for me to write again. I'm not going to make any promises at this time. I'm going to be falling in love with writing again. I will be working on the next edition to my Women of Strength Series, Karli. I think this is the perfect direction for me to take. I am not going to add any unnecessary stress by giving a release date. That is why I highlighted the sentence in the image above.
So, here I goooooooooooooo................
It was just a matter of time..... my 1st ever Biker Bunny!
This is Ziggy & Zappa. Now part of our family.
All the bunnies are sold and I just finished the bear and it is looking
for a home still, As you can see, I've been keeping busy.
I hope you are all doing well. I'll be in touch again real soon.
Here is the 6 bunnies I made. The 1st ones I actually sold, It brings a great sense if satisfaction being able to make something out of a 2nd hand coat.
My sister-in-law picked me up another beautiful, soft brown fur coat and my daughter picked up the creamy colored coat at a second hand store for $10. Not bad considering it would cost at least a minimum of $100 to buy the fabric.
I'm also going to try my hand at teddy bears like the ones in this picture, but using baby sleepers.
So, as you can see, I'm slowly rebuilding confidence in my creativity.
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter.
P.S. Meet Ziggy & Zappa We will be giving these 2 a forever home.
Right now they are in foster care. Soon they will be given their shots and getting fixed, Once the cones come off their heads they will come here for good,
That's all for now.....
Here is the bunny as promised. It still needs a nose and mouth, but that will come in time. I'm still exploring my options. I have another one almost completely finished out of a recycled Lynx fur coat, and another I made out of a recycled black faux fur coat. It is soooooo much easier to work with the faux fur as opposed to the real fur. I think from now on I will go that route. Occasionally I might do another if someone happens to donate another real fur.
I am keeping busy, reading books on my Kobo. Fueling the fire for when I write again. Yes, I will write again. It's part of who I am/ I will, however go about things very differently. I don't have it all figured out yet, but I'm working on it. Stay tuned....
Wish you all Miles of Smiles :)
May the Luck of the Irish be with you always ♥
I hope this greeting finds you all happy and healthy. I am in the process of making plush rabbits out of recycled fur coats. It's much more difficult working with real fur as opposed to man-made fur. My poor hands are testament to this. Here is one in the middle of being put together and stuffed. I'll share the finished product later this evening. This is from a 100% rabbit fur coat. I do not condone the killing of animals for coats like this, but I figured by recycling them, they'll end up in the arms of a child who will love it unconditionally.
Until today I never really understood the pain of losing a pet. Sadly we had to have Charli put to sleep this morning. She wasn't being herself over the weekend, progressively giving more cause for concern. She wouldn't eat and it appeared she had trouble with her teeth, or so we thought. They took xrays that should her small intestines were more than doubled in size. They tried to give her a shot of laxatives in case it was just a matter of something lodged. Unfortunately that wasn't the case and her health continued to get worse. Charli was very small to begin with, but the vet said given her size and the fact she had a heart murmur, any surgery had a 99% chance of her not surviving. I agreed with the vet it was the kindest thing to do, and ended her suffering.
It's hard to imagine in the space of a year how attached I got to a cat. I am heart sick. Every time I see the other cat, Creature who we got at the same time as Charli wandering around looking for her. Last night she climbed up on my lap and groomed Charli. It sure brought on the tears, so special.
I am off to see if I can get a little sleep. I think I've been up for 48 hours now. A special thanks to all those who expressed their concern and said a prayer. It brought comfort to know so many of you cared.
Love and hugs to all ♥♥
Please give your fur-baby a hug today for me.
