Sorry I haven’t posted lately, but I’ve been ill pretty much since the end of November – ugh! However I did get 2 creations finished, and another nearly done, he should be ready to pose for pics tomorrow.
I’d like you to meet Rudy. Unfortunately Rudy hasn’t made it to his TT ornament swap recipient yet, having been caught up in the great Royal Mail bad weather debacle. He was posted on the 6th December, well within his posting time to Europe, but alas he’s still lounging in his box. I do hope he arrives soon!
Rudy was a completely new design for me, as he has a double neck joint, and a joint at his wrists. I do hope his recipient likes him!
Next up is Berracht, named by my dad, who received him for Christmas, because he’s sporting a Cameron of Erracht tartan ribbon. Berracht has a double neck joint, elbow and wrist joints and is my first 4 piece body design. Phew, what a lot of new techniques on a little bear!
Hopefully there will be more photos soon, but as I finished him at 2:30 am on Christmas day, I didn’t get to studio shoot him!
Hope everyone had a great Christmas :o)
I hope you're feeling better soon, Katy! Love the bears with the "extras"–Berracht seems to have a longer nose, too. Hope Rudy gets home very soon!
I love Rudy & of course Berracht. He has a wonderful face. 2:30 am on Christmas morning, yikes.
LuLu is very happy and playing with all her Christrmas prezzies.
Both wonderful bears. I do love how Rudy can stand and look up. What a great picture.
Well doesn't he look fab. Berracht is now comfortable installed in our hug in Blackpool. I am so glad that Lulu has settled in well with Prudence and Sissy, and maybe LT will post photos of really old, experienced bears too. My bear Edward T Bear and Ann's bear Ted went up north to visit. Quite an upheaval for such venerable bears but they seem to have enjoyed themselves, particularly when they got at the brandy bottle!
I am curious to see more photos on Berracht, especially when you mention there are lots of joints over him. Great effort in a few days!
Thanks guys. Oh daaaad, looks like you need to get the light tent and Berracht out ;o)
Both gorgeous bears Katy…bet your dad was proud to have Berracht all for his own.
Good to see you pushing those boundaries too, I can see you are really forging ahead.
