'Willopee' My First Little Orangutan!

'Willopee' is a 13 1/2 inch OOAK Lombard Bears Orangutan.....My first little orangutan!! He is made from a gorgeous rusty coloured mohair with a dark brown back and has beautiful soulful blue glass eyes from the UK. His feet , hands and inner ears are a lovely soft chocolate suede which I have hand stitched to make fingers and toes. 'Willopee's' face is sculpted needle felt which I have hand shaded with inks to give him all his character. He has my signature 9-way jointing system so he sits like an ape and he is filled with wool then weighted with steel shot so he feels like a real little creature.
                                                              Available on my website now!!
                                                                        Hope you like him :)

Castle Rock - A great way to clear the mind :)

Off we trot!!


Discoveries on the way!

What life is all about xx

A happy trekker with her ducky who dropped down between some rocks up the top and we had to organise an emergency rescue!!!

Brian and I did our darndest to hold up balancing rock ;)

What do you do when your mind in chogged up...........head for the sky!!! We headed for a place called Castle Rock last weekend and had a fabulous day!!! Brian made it to the top onto the lookout round Castle Rock, Elkie and I waited at the bottom of the steps up to it as it was a bit scarey for Elkie and then we headed for the easy lookout on the other side. I fabulous spot and an amazing view to reward yourself with after a lovely bushwalk up!! That's living I say :)

On the creations front....a new chimp friend in evolving and set to enter the world soon :)
