This and That

It's been a dreary day here in Michigan - overcast and cool - very Fall like weather and wayyyyyy to early for us. So I've been catching up on projects. WARNING - one is not for the faint of heart...
You may remember Daisy from an earlier posting. She went to a very good home via a Silent Auction. However, her new owner (a proud Grandmother) decided the eyes need to be changed so that Daisy was "baby safe". The only solution - surgery (log off now if you are squeamish!). And so it had to be done. It took me awhile to decide what to do, but searching the Internet helped - amazing the things you can find! Unfortunately, I copied and pasted the instructions I found into Word and failed to keep a link to the blog (so I can't give credit). Anyway, I like the added eye lashes....
So now Daisy has her sight back and can return home... Another project - well there is nothing like a deadline to get you motivated. My niece will be celebrating her birthday next weekend and I have been remiss in finding her something. So I made the following

I hope she likes it! (Kate, if you're reading this - don't tell Syd - will be in the post Monday). Now on to ATCs for September 8th when our Guild starts up again - where DID the summer go!


  1. Oh, Julie, what a wonderful job you did in operating on the darling little bear. It was hard to watch (as you warned) but the outcome was just wonderful. He is even better looking than before with those beautiful green eyelashes! Also your collage turned out splendidly. Good job! :-) Carol

  2. There is just something about needles and eyes that makes me a little uneasy!!! She turned out great though, the lashes were a sweet touch. It will probably end up being one of those treasures that is kept years from now when it has been loved to pieces.
