A finished bear and a day in the sun

Hi Everyone:

I have completed one of my bears and thought I would post her up here for you to have a proper sneak peak. Please meet "MERCY" ~ She is the first of my nurse bears. She is made of mauve mohair with a slight wave. I aged her with plucking, shaving and shading. I also made her nurse hat which has a vintage nurse pin on the back from the 1940's. Her pin on her chest is also a vintage red cross pin from the 40's... I am thrilled with this little lady.

We had a great day out in the sun yesterday and I think you will agree that you have never seen such a BIG smile on a dogs face.

The summer cannot come soon enough for an Italian greyhound.

My little Pug was pretty darn happy too!

  1. Love the nurse bear, how sweet she looks in her hat. Your dogs are pretty darn cute too.
