Art Doll Quarterly and I Miss making Bears!!

Exciting news! My Bear Doll Pincushions made it to the glossy pages!
I'm so grateful to Jana Holstein for this opportunity, for her lovely and friendly emails, for her always sunny attitude. Thanks a bunch, Jana!

I so love this creation of mine that seeing it in print makes my heart beat faster!

Oooh I want to make more!!! I have new ideas swirling in my mind...

And I do miss making my bears too!!!!!! For those of you who repeatedly told me how much they love them... here are some archive pics of early and newer chaps! With a huge thank you for your support too!:)

Hope I will be able to make more, once I'm settled in a new nest with all of my tools! Hands permitting... I am almost finished with my medical tests and should have the surgery at the end of the month. Fingers crossed. Hope the surgeon will give me permission to stuff a bit... even if I already know what she's going to tell me.... naughty Monica!!!!! But hey... just a little stuffing every now and then... pleaaaase :)
Enjoy your day, remember there's still time to enter my giveaway here.
