So here's the past few weeks made short(er) & sweet for blog readers.
Enjoying my tea & scones
I obviously need a haircut (waist-length hair, even on a sparsely-haired person, gets HEAVY :P) and the dentist says I have 3 pin-sized cavities (not too bad considering how most of my meals are CAKE), but I'm back to my super-healthy self!
Now that the weather's nice and cold, I can start trying new afternoon tea places again and look forward to snowboarding!
This has been a nice, cold Canadian autumn -- my favourite season!
I've been enjoying the many beautiful Vancouver parks with my dear Raccoon... who is not quite as into this kind of weather, haha.
Here he is, holding his belated St. Valentine's gift. It's a giant alligator-crocodile (damned if I can remember the difference), completely designed & hand-stitched by me!
The monkey it's chomping on is not included. ;)
Asides from Crocky, who was VERY time-consuming, I also made a bunch of other plushies!
For example, this very very pink French poodle, who is now available on Etsy:
And this Movember mustached whale, also on Etsy:
And -- this is almost a miracle -- I've FINALLY completed the autumn team-challenge doll:
My miniature Hallowe'en black cat wants you to know that she's thrilled to have found a home!
I made her an even tinier companion/lunch for the journey. She is only 5/8 inch tall, so you can imagine how tiny the mouse is!
Lastly, here's a sneak peek of the teddy bear and felt food I'm working on for the BCGEU craft fair (Nov. 22).
The teddy bear is too "regular-sized" to sell in my Etsy shop, considering how expensive Canadian postage is for anything over 1/2 inch thick, so I really hope someone will take him home from the fair!

Anyway, I've already made a bunch of felt cakes and macarons, and hope to make 10 to 20 more things in this final week.
Wish me luck!
