Work In Progress 4 ~ Cat

"Ginger" the little tabby kitten is finished! Her final measurements are 6 x 6 1/2 inches. Ginger and I have grown quite attached and even though she will be hard to part with I have listed her on Ebay. You can visit her there and see more pictures of her by clicking on the link below.

TAG, I'm It!!

I have just been tagged by my very talented Artist friend Diane MacNaughtan! Diane creates a magical world of whimsy with her Artist Ornaments which she sells out of her studio The Mcollection. This means I am to write five random things about myself, then tag five others to do the same . . .

  1. I am a peanut butter nut!! I crave and devour anything with peanut butter!!
  2. I used to do "Pet Therapy" and take shelter animals for visits to people in Nursing Homes. A great win-win situation for both the lonley people and animals enjoyed the company!
  3. I have mandibular fibrious dysplasia.
  4. I secretly dream of being a writer.
  5. My favorite place to be is at home. . . enjoying time with my family or working on a project in my studio.

Okay, I get to Tag five people! I took a peek around and found the Blog's of several talented Bear Artist's to tag. They are:


  1. Post these rules on your Blog.
  2. Link to your Tagger. This is a wonderful PR tool for the GOOGLE search engines. HENCE THE NAME TAGGED!
  3. Share 5 facts about yourself on your Blog. Some facts can be random & some unusual. Sharing on Tagger's Blog is optional.
  4. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their Blogs.
  5. Let them know they are Tagged by leaving a comment on their Blog

*The INTERNET TAG GAME is a clever way to social network promotional (PR) links. It's a good thing! *Remember if you keep getting tagged & you're very busy at least your RANDOM 5 are good to go again & again & again...

Work In Progress 3 ~ Cat

This took a little longer to get posted than I would have liked. I had a computer crash and haven't been able to get online until now. Sure am glad to have my computer back up and running! So here she is with her new fur coat. I tried several color variations and decided on an orange tabby cat. I feel these color tones bring out her blue eyes nicely. I spent a lot of time mixing these colors they include reds, oranges, yellows, browns, and cream wools. I still have a little more details to add to the face and ears and of course she'll get eyelashes! Well, off to finish this little girls body!

Work In Progress 2 ~ Cat

Here is an update Work In Progress for the cat. Her facial features are more defined. I will come back and do more work to the face, but for now it's time for this kitty to get some fur! I have some wool colorations in mind, I'll work a couple and see what I like best. She should look very different on the next update with her new fur coat!!

Needle Felted Bear Featured in the Newspaper!

My little needle felted bear got a big picture of her printed in the Bellingham Herald Newspaper! She was featured as a Unique Blue Ribbon winning creation.

What a thrill it was open the newspaper and see her little face looking back at me!

Here she is reading her article! That's a big picture for such a tiny little bear! The little bear stands at only 3 1/2 inches tall yet they blew up and printed her picture at 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches!
I have finally found the time to create a blog! Trying to figure my way through here, but I am excited to be on my new blogging adventure. There's been a lot of exciting things happening with Zada Creations and I can't wait to share!
