The Colour Purple...

Boy, did I marvel at that movie...Alice Walker is such an AWESOME lady! Well, I can't say that my latest bear was inspired by anything purple sounding but somehow he came about and ended up verrrry purple! I even went a little purple crazy and created him an odd ball purple hat with a button that reads 'Made in Paris!!'...oh no, he was made in Oz for sure but I think it makes him want to see the Eiffel Tower or something very French...Maybe a croissant and an Edith Piaf CD will get him feeling like he is there...Edith Piaf always reminds me of coffee...strange huh?... they used to play her songs on a coffee ad here in Australia and so now everytime I hear her I think of coffee...WOW, the power of advertising...anyhoo, I digress...If you'd like to see Saihoo, yep, that's the purple ones name, he is on eBay now...

PS...Miko and Shoochi found FABOTASTIC homes in the UK and are on their way there now...lucky things will meet their lovely new familes soon!...Oh to be a bear and travel the World...Can you send humans by post??...ahem...

Rainy Days and Rumbles!

Rain, rain go away, come back another day...No, no we sure do need the rain and this lot has been FAB! I think the Earth here needed some rejuvenation and that's just what she got...only thing is the sky was dark and was rumbling like a bears belly without honey! Still, the thunder and gloomy day is worth the new freshness that comes with the rain...A rainy day also means fun with the crochet hook and what jumped off my hook this time is a very sweet traditional looking Amigurumi girl in baby pink...Awww, Shoochi, that's the name she chose, just melted my heart when she was finished and I could almost have kept her but she whispered in my ear that she'd like to travel the World and meet new people so she convinced me to pop her on eBay to find a loving family to adopt her...I just love the look of traditional Amigurumi, it's so simple yet so, so sweet...and they give such lovely hugs on a rainy and gloomy day!

Starting the Weeko with Miko!

What a FAB start to the Week! I have completed a sweet little pink girl in the Japanese-style...I got plenty of sore fingers from the needles but she was well worth it, I managed to get her to 1 1/8" standing so was very happy with that, I think I will go a little smaller on the next one though. Unfortunately I didn't create a mini dress for her but I hope I can do it soon, I just have to have the right ribbon for it and the oranza I had this time was a little narrow...It would be good for a 3/4" beary though. Anyhoo, the little bearies name is Miko and she is on eBay right now...

An Australian Kitty Cat in the UK...

WooHoo!! The Owl and the Pussy Cat are off to the beautiful UK to be with a wonderfully friendly collector! I am so glad they found a home!
I have other mini's in the UK, maybe they will have a reunion some day...tee hee...
Tonight, I did some felting but nothing came of it, I just went waaaaaaay too big! The micro's are so my FAV bearies, and I am always surprised at how little they are...So, I put my big felting schamozzle (spelling?) away and started on a micro mini in pretty and soft pink...I am predicting she will be 1 and a bit inches or so...This time I would love to try my hand at a mini organza dress for her...wish me luck, I think I'm gonna need it!

The Owl and the Pussy Cat

The Owl and the Pussy Cat went to Sea in a beautiful pea green boat...etc, etc, etc...My Mum discovered the funny little Owl in a thrift shop and so I spirited it away hearing Edward Lear's funny rhyme in my head...well, the first line anyhoo! I couldn't think of the rest but a visit to Google reminded me of the whole story...and while my new micro mini felted pussy cat sitting on top of the little Owl isn't sitting in a pea green boat with honey and a five pound note, she is still a little cutie...She will be making an appearance on eBay tonight some time so pop over and see her soon if ya like, I'm sure she would looooove the visit!

First post!

Well...I am new to this whole Blog thing but I hope to have it up and running properly soon for sure, although since I am writing this I guess it means it's working!...tee hee... I should introduce myself though I guess...I am Kaz, I live in South Australia and am a miniature bear and doll artist. I am a mad miniature felter...mostly using NZ Corriedale Wool to create teeny little bearies though I do crochet them as well and even use faux fur or mohair on occasion when I feel like sewing. I am a big fan of the Japanese-style bearies and have been creating them for a long time now and still looove them to bits!

What's Japanese-style right...well if ya don't know here is a little picky of one of my 'Anime' bearies!

More chit chat and bearies coming soon!
