Hi Shari..

I am posting one of my needlefelted yorkies with a Millette I made.  They just seemed to go together .
The Millette was not part of the auction...I think I will make her a yorkie just to display with her in the cabinet.  Yeh, right...in my spare time


I hope this doesn't show up too big.

She is so adorable Shari...I have been working on soft sculpture dolls too and I just absolutely love it.  so much fun.  I only do them for myself.
You have done a wonderful job on your very first...it is a lot more work than one would think, to make these little cuties.
Thanks so much for sharing the pictures.
AND thankyou Sue Ann for your sweet compliment!!!

Hi! My name is Linda. I haven't created a bear since 2001. I started sculpting infants over the last few years. Recently, I sculpted a baby chimp and tang. I realized how much I missed working with fur......hairballs and all! I've just finished my first bear and it felt good getting back to my old roots again! I've combined my sculpting with bear making. I'm still rusty with my proportions with bears, they're nothing like babies!  bear_ermm Luckily I found this site searching for "double jointed neck"! I look forward to chatting with all of you!
