Good morning! It was a really strange sunset yesterday. I went outside and most of the garden was dark, apart from two trees which were lit up in brilliant orange. Just thought I'd share...
Please excuse the quality of these next photos - they were taken in the dark this morning, with the flash. This is Huckleberry's waistcoat. It's the wrong colour for him, but the fit is near perfect. I love the way it rides up at the back slightly.
And this is Muriel! She is a tiny bear - measuring just 4.5 inches sitting on a shelf; 7.5 inches from head to toe. She was awful to make, and took a ridiculous amount of time, given how small she was. It was trying to pack those bulky joints into such a tiny frame. At one point, I had her arms jointed before her head (not the way I usually do it), but I had to remove them again, because there was no way I could have gotton the disc for the head joint into the space that was left. Not that there wasn't room for it - there just wasn't room to actually fix it in place.
Anyway, I might have another go, because she turned out quite well after all that. She has a lot of steel shot in her, so she sits very well.
